Give Your Finances A Boost

Andrew Graham, Co-founder & CEO

Dec 10, 2019

Borrowell launches Boost, Canada’s first bill-tracker and predictive advance.

Since our founding in 2014, Borrowell has grown to over a million users by listening to the needs of Canadians. Today, we're thrilled to announce the launch of Boost, a suite of digital tools to help track, manage and pay bills on time to improve financial health. 

Late or missed bill payments are one of the leading factors impacting credit scores, determining a whopping 35% of an Equifax credit score. According to a recent study, the number of households missing or paying bills late has increased by 50% over the past two years.  We strive to provide Canadians with the tools they need to improve their financial health. Our members told us they were struggling to track and pay bills, so we worked to be the first to offer them a solution, Boost. 

Borrowell Boost securely links to a member’s existing bank account, allowing them to track their bills and notifying them of upcoming due dates. Predictive technology then determines the likelihood of insufficient funds and offers an interest-free advance - or ‘boost’ - to prevent non-sufficient funds (NSF) fees and help safeguard a member’s credit score. 

Currently in beta testing, Borrowell Boost will be widely available in early 2020 on the Borrowell mobile app for a small monthly subscription. Sign up to join our waitlist.
