Awards are like buses it seems 🤩. We’re absolutely thrilled to be finalists for a grand total of four awards right now across the British Bank Awards and the British Data Awards!
First, the British Bank Awards, which are voted for by customers. We’re up for both categories entered - Best Personal Finance App and Best Newcomer.
Making it to the final stage feels like a huge achievement having only just gone live a few months ago. We’re incredibly grateful to all of our customers who have voted for us by leaving a review. Thank you - you’re all amazing for taking the time and we always want to hear what you think, good and bad.
The reviews will go live on The Smart Money People website when the winners are announced in early May. And you can still leave a review that will be posted straight away, even though voting has now closed.
No sooner had we heard about the British Bank Awards than the British Data Awards finalists were announced - and we’ve been shortlisted in the two categories we entered there too! We’re keeping our fingers crossed for Startup of the Year and Financial Services Company of the Year - both of which would be incredible achievements.
When it comes to Startup of the Year, we’re the only consumer brand among the finalists. We know as a consumer business, the British Data Awards aren’t necessarily going to be exciting for our customers, but what makes it special for us, is that we’re all about giving people easy access to their own data and using it to help them make important decisions about their borrowing. So it would be amazing to be recognised with an award for doing innovative things with that data!
We know that so many of us think we’re better at understanding our borrowing than we really are. The impact of not being able to see things clearly can be huge - and let’s face it, it’s rarely easy to make full sense of each borrowing product we have, nevermind how they could work better together or how best to pay back. And figuring that out isn’t our idea of a fun night in either! Which is why we wanted to make ‘an app for that’.
Hearing what our customers think of us is incredibly important, as feedback helps us ensure the app is the best it can be. However, that’s not the only reason we care so much about your reviews.
ilumoni asks you to share a lot of information during sign up. And we know that can be a little scary.
But without that key information, we can’t provide the insights that you come to us for. This is why, the more people share their thoughts and review ilumoni, the better. Reviews will help us to show that we are trusted by thousands already.
People should be wary about the access they allow to their financial information. We’d always recommend you check out exactly who you’re sharing data with and how it will be used. The Financial Ombudsman has loads of useful tips on this subject. It’s incredibly important to stay safe. And while you can easily check that we’re an FCA regulated business, people are far more likely to type “ilumoni reviews” into Google, than look at the FCA register.
At ilumoni, we’re big on transparency and honesty, so if you ever have questions about how we use your data or want to know more, our support team are always more than happy to answer those, so that you can continue to use ilumoni with confidence. Head to our FAQs page to find out more about how secure ilumoni is, and what we do with your data.
You can always let us know what you think of ilumoni by contacting our support team to tell us directly. We want to know, both good and bad. If you don’t like something or have a problem, we’d really like a chance to fix it - by asking our customers and understanding their specific circumstances, we can make the app better for everyone. We’d also love it if you left us a review on the App Store or Google Play.
If you REALLY love ilumoni and our app has helped you in a big way, we want to hear your #BorrowWell story in more detail too. Get in touch and tell us the difference ilumoni has made in your life. And if you’re happy for us to, we’ll share your story to inspire others. Don’t worry though, we’ll never do this without your permission and full involvement in how it would work.
It’s amazing to know that over 10,000 people have downloaded ilumoni since we launched last autumn and we hope it’s not too long before we’re welcoming the next 10,000 who want to Borrow Well.
Keep your fingers crossed for us and hopefully, we’ll be telling you that we’ve won at least one or two of the four awards we’ve been nominated for soon.
