ING lets customers save as they run with new set-and-forget tool

ING lets customers save as they run with new set-and-forget tool

ING's Australian customers can now set automatic savings triggers that are linked to how they go about their everyday lives - meaning they can save as they run, tweet, or even shiver in the cold.

The 'set-and-forget' feature lets users set a host of rules that when triggered see set amounts of money transferred to a savings account.

For example, when the temperature drops below a certain level, $20 could be put towards a tropical holiday; or when an exercise goal is met, $5 is transferred to a pot for new running shoes.

The new feature required ING to open up its APIs to tech firm IFTTT, which specialises in getting hundreds of different apps and devices to work together.

Chris Barwick, head, digital and innovation, ING, says: "This is an example of how by securely opening our APIs to third parties we’re able to help meet the ever changing banking needs of Australians.

"This partnership opens up new possibilities for our customers to save; it means they can save almost whenever, wherever and however they want."
