Trying to manage our family's finances is hard. We built Dolly to help.
What it does
Right now Dolly helps people manage and understand their spend.
How we built it
Sticks and stones afterwork.
Testing with family and friends.
Integrating Plaid to get access to spend records.
Challenges we ran into
Deciding whether or not to include the Amazon Alexa Skills Kit Sound Sheep Bleat #3. We decided yes!
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are really proud of how quickly Dolly responds to our questions and how quickly she can send an email to a user with their transaction history.
What we learned
There is a lot of untapped potential for voice-first interfaces and experiences that are supported by a screen. Alexa could make it easier to test paid subscription services.
What's next for Dolly Financial
We want to keep testing and building onto Dolly. We want to make Dolly more conversational, add features, and maybe launch a company.
