What can you use the app for?

FlowTorch is designed to help businesses manage and monitor their finances. The user can create an account in minutes and begin adding data and more. FlowTorch generates bold charts and visualizations that allow the user to get an overview of their income and expenses in an easy to read format. The user can list recurring and one-time payments on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Files can be uploaded and attached to individual transactions, including invoices and receipts. Each user can create multiple accounts so businesses and other sources of income can be listed separately. For example, the user can create one account for their online store and another for an eBay account or other income producing investment. Expenses and income can be categorized for greater organization. Multiple users can be given access so family members, co-workers and employees who need to review financial data can do so.
