The TipsGO Framework ([login to view URL]) provides a complete range of APIs that allow you to build Personal Financial Management (PFM) tools such as Financial Calculators. An example of this is a Saving Tracker (also known as Goal tracker as it allows you to track how well you are progressing towards achieving your goal). The Saving Tracker can be used by a user to track how well they are progressing towards achieving their Saving Goals. A Savings Goal can be something like Go on holiday or Buy a new iPad etc.
A Saving Tracker can be useful for many different scenarios or users. For example, an adult may use it for tracking their progress towards achieving the lifestyle goals such as buying a car or going on holidays.
Similarly, kids can use the Saving Tracker to track when they can get their favorite toy by saving the pocket money and other money they receive as gifts or payments for chores they do.
Of course, there are a number of factors that will determine how much money a person can save and how much time it will take to save that money. Some of these include:
How often they earn and save
How much they save
How long they will save for
How much interest they can earn from savings
When you factor all of the above there are a few things we need to track and it can get quite complex. This is where the TipsGO APIs can be very useful, because the APIs encompass all the logic to track the earnings and savings and provide you a really simple interface to access them.
