New Onedox customers can also win a prize of getting their electricity bills paid for by Onedox for a year, worth up to £600! Further details are in the post below.
What is Onedox?
Onedox is a unique, free, online service that allows consumers in the UK to automatically get a clear, centralised view across household bills and to save money on them. It provides access to all of your household account information and bills in one secure web-based account, and automatically emails you to let you know when new activity has taken place or when you can save money based on your individual usage.
The idea for Onedox came from the frustrating experience that many people have of dealing with their household bills: the tiresome chore of trawling through statements received through the post, emails and different (and slow) online accounts that are often not very self-explanatory, in order to understand what the bills were for and whether they gave good value for money. Especially for people without a lot of time, maintaining bills and statements across the variety of household services that we use can be a real pain. However, it’s necessary to do so if you want to ensure you aren’t paying too much for the services you use. Onedox aims to make it easier for people with less time to save money, by automatically letting them know whenever they aren’t on the best deals, and providing a simple means of switching to a better deal.
How does it work?
Once you’ve set up your free Onedox account, we’ll guide you through adding all of the services you wish to automatically and centrally manage. Presently, you can add your gas and electricity accounts, TV, Internet and landline, your mobile phone account and even any cars you have. To add an account to Onedox, you will need to provide your online user name and password for that account. In the case of any cars, you just need to provide the make and car registration number.
Our site and all communications with Onedox servers are fully encrypted to ensure the security of your use of the service from any device.
What are the benefits?
Having added your household accounts, Onedox will thereafter automatically fetch and collate information relating to them from your supplier (or the DVLA in the case of your car), meaning that your Onedox account is up to date with all the latest key information and statements. There’s a wealth of information that then becomes available at your fingertips – including automatic notification of MOT and tax renewal dates, graphical representation of your bills over time, one-click access to any statements you wish to explore in more detail, contract end dates and alerts when you can save money by switching to a new supplier.
How do I save money?
On an ongoing basis, Onedox automatically compares what you are currently paying and using with deals available from other suppliers. Where we identify you can save money, we will email you to let you know that you have an action to take care of to keep your account in good health. We’ll then take you through a really simple process of switching to a better deal of your choice. Lots of our customers are already saving hundreds of pounds a year by using the service.
If you decide to switch to a better deal through Onedox, we may receive a commission from the supplier you switch to. This money is used to cover our costs and to enable us to provide the service for free.
What are your plans for the future?
We’ve put a lot of work and development into making the service as helpful as possible, based on the feedback we’ve received from our customers. Our intention is to continue refining the service and providing new features according to what our customers find useful. We’d also like lots of people to use and benefit from the service, so please try it out and if you like it, let your friends and family know so they can save and money too!
If there is demand for it, we may extend the scope of the services Onedox supports, to cover things like insurance and council tax. The most unusual request we’ve had so far has been to provide the ability to support pet vaccination dates! We welcome all feedback so if there are other things you’d like to see supported, please let us know.
