Budgeting Software

Accel offers an easy-to-use software tool called BudgetSmart that uses simple graphics and bar charts to help you manage money more effectively. You can use the program to establish a budget, track spending habits, view tips for improving areas of overspending (or inadequate saving), and experiment with "what if'" scenarios to determine how a major purchase or change in income would impact your budget.
