Hello Product Hunt community, Iโ€™m David, the co-founder of Onedox. I was inspired to create Onedox by the experience of my Mum. I realised that as a loyal customer to household suppliers like energy, Internet and insurance companies, she was in fact getting charged more money the longer she stayed with them, and was overpaying by around ยฃ1,000 per year. ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ Having figured out this was a widespread issue, I started Onedox with @hughns in 2015. We describe it as a "digital PA for household bills" and weโ€™ve been building a service to give people one central view of bills across energy, mobile, home media (Internet, TV, landline), streaming services, car tax and MOT, TV licensing, water bills and home and car insurance. ๐Ÿ˜… It gives reminders when itโ€™s time to take action, like an MOT being due or contract renewal date approaching, and helps people take action like switching tariff or supplier. ๐Ÿ”Ž Most people donโ€™t have the time or inclination to stay on top of all of their bills and contract renewal dates ๐Ÿ™ˆ, and as a result of doing nothing, end up overpaying up to ยฃ1000 per year for core household utilities like energy, insurance, mobile and Internet. ๐Ÿ˜ž Thatโ€™s what weโ€™re changing. ๐Ÿš€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Some cool things we do that our customers love: - Automatically collect household bills and display them in one place ๐Ÿ“‘ - Send alerts whenever new information is available or a renewal date is approaching ๐Ÿšจ - Prompt you to take action at exactly the right time so you can switch to a better deal or provider ๐Ÿ—ฃ I hope you try out Onedox and find it useful! Any feedback at all is welcome and Iโ€™ll be here to address any questions or suggestions you might have. Best wishes, David P.S. Onedox is UK only for now!

@hughns @david_sheridan1 I checked out the screenshots, saw UK specific stuff and thought "I hope this is not UK only" but it is :'( When do you plan to expand?

@hughns hey @anna_0x We'd love to provide this outside the UK. We're working on it for 2019. Will keep the Product Hunt community updated.

@hughns @david_sheridan1 cool, waiting for more news then!

@yc_chen hey, thank you! As soon as we've got the UK cracked, we're looking to expand and investigate the US market. Do you think this type of product would be relevant for the US market (@anna_0x too)? We've not researched that recently so any insights or suggestions would be great!

I have been using this app for a couple of months now and I really like it. In the background it is looking after all the things I know I need to check but never seam to have the time for. So far it is managing the mot, tax and insurance for 2 cars, gas & electricitybills , 3 mobile phones bills , 1 contract iPad bill, broadband bill, tv licence and Netflix account. During that time is has switch me to a cheaper gas & electricity provider saving me ยฃ434, told me 2 of our mobiles are overdue a free in contract upgrade and I have booked one of the cars in for an mot. The great thing for me was I have not had to look out a single bit of paperwork, everything can be done from the app. It one of my core apps now, alongside my bank account and inbox, it just works.

Looks more convenient than the Chrome bookmark folder I have now.

@dave_poly my Onedox alternative is a post pile in my hall way... I still haven't quite got rid of it....

looks great, do you plan to add other countries?
David Sheridan

@asmekhov hey. we anticipate certain EU countries make sense first (during 2019), and to take an opportunistic approach elsewhere in the event there are partnership opportunities. Is there anywhere you'd suggest?
