Machine learning has been widely used to develop a system of ‘smart alerts’ that tell customers key information. Like as credit card payments falling due, overdrawn accounts, and high-cost transactions such as a credit card cash advance.

Other features include a ‘goal tracker’ that will encourage customers to save regularly by setting weekly targets.

‘Cash flow view’ and ‘spend tracker’ helps users itemise their transactions and have a clear breakdown of how they spend their money.

The ‘regular payments’ feature is there to show all recurring payments. Such as subscriptions and recurring bills, designed to help customers identify savings opportunities.

The Commbank app works with Centrelink

At the launch of the app, Angus Sullivan and Chief Digital Officer Pete Steel suggested that the technology powering the app could even end Centrelink’s ‘Robodebt’ collection. 

That would be nice but at the moment what Commbank does offer is help to find benefits, rebates and concession payments that you might be eligible for.
