Pogglepod is designed to help manage your personal electronic records. It is a tool for categorising,  tracking and managing your personal records.  

Pogglepod will:

 

  • assist you to track the due dates future bills and statements;

  • remind  you pay bills and to service and register your motor vehicle;

  • track subscriptions; and,

  • manage your income and expenditure for budgeting and tax reporting.

 

Pogglepod has advanced search functions to enable you to:

 

  • re-find items in several ways;

​Replace your desk with a sofa

Pogglepod enables you to move your records management from a computer to a mobile device usable from your couch while also providing a robust and efficient tool which will reduce your paper record-keeping to almost nil. 

How does Pogglepod software work? 

Pogglepod is a secure online tool. It can be accessed from a computer or installed as an application on any mobile device. When you create your Pogglepod account, it will create a Dropbox folder for your documents, and provide you with a link to that folder.  

 

You can include records (such as bills, subscription notices, bank statements etc., broadly categorised as Poggles) in Pogglepod by forwarding emails to Pogglepod@Pogglepod.com, or you can add Poggles manually within the online software.  Pogglepod is smart software, which remembers how you categorised similar items previously, so that it can learn to do more of more of the hard work for you.

However, you are always in control.  For instance, the first time you include a phone bill in Pogglepod, it will ask you to enter the billing dates, supplier, billing cycle, and whether that bill needs to be paid, or whether you have a direct debit facility. The next time you submit a bill from that same supplier, Pogglepod will use the information from the previous bill to fill in as much detail as possible, and then just ask you to confirm that it is correct.  The bill will be saved in a labelled folder, and the file renamed to more clearly describe it in terms that you understand.

 

Pogglepod will automatically retrieve records which are sent to it by email with the bill or other document to be retrieved via a hyperlink  (unless a password is required), saving time and effort.
