Reckon Product Ideas
Make a difference by sharing your ideas with the Reckon product development team. Your votes will directly influence the product roadmap and help guide our products future direction.

Please note all new ideas remain hidden from public view until reviewed by our team.


Announcement: September 2023

We are currently well underway building our next-gen user interfaces, starting with Payroll web and mobile (released), Invoices mobile (released) and soon, advanced Payroll, Reckon Mate enhancements, and Time web.

Where appropriate we'll add features from the Product Ideas Portal to both old and new interfaces, or, where new is replacing old, we'll add to the new range only.

Thank you for your patience - whilst we understand building new interfaces and products takes longer than adding a feature, we are certain the new designs will ultimately provide a better experience for all our customers.

Regards,
The Reckon Product Team

Add TransferWise or Wise as a Direct Bank Data feed

TransferWise (recently rebranded as Wise) is a global bank operating in Australia and popular with businesses that need to send or recieve overseas payments.

Unfortunately, Wise is not available in your bank feed choices. Given the presence of smaller and less known banks, it would be awesome if Reckon could team up with Wise to offer direct bank feeds from Wise business accounts.

    Hi Michelle. Wise should come on board with the rollout of Open Banking in Australia. This has been delayed for quite a while as the established institutions have pushed back, however most should be online later this year / early next.

    Hi John. Our hope was to manage this via Open Banking, however the majority of accounting providers (including Reckon) have kept their direct connections to the banks as Open Banking, although publically "live", has a number of issues that all vendors are struggling with => most importantly, data integrity. Treasury have also imposed that any 3rd party app that is connected to accounting software who uses open banking data must be ISO certified. This requirement is unachievable in our opinion, and would mean all accounting products would lose up to 95% of their integrations, and would devastate a vibrant eco-system.

    The only other option is to create a direct feed, however the truth of the matter is, this idea has 3 votes, and we only have a relatively small team, so we have to invest their time where we see the best return. Recently we've released a new mobile invoice app, an integration with Novatti payments, enabled eInvoicing, and have been working on new payroll products (web and mobile) to enable Single Touch Payroll phase 2. I truly wish we could do everything, I really do, but it just is not possible.

    As soon as our team are happy with the quality of the Open Banking platform, and, if we can have the ISO requirement overturned as an industry, we'll cross over from direct feeds to Open Banking feeds as we have already built the infrastructure.

    sounds like neither party particularly values the other and so the users lose out 🤷‍♂️

    Hi Tim. Wise have previously requested that we do the work, and unfortunately this isn't a top level priority for our team. If they wish to connect to us then we have publically available and free RESTful APIs for their team to use. Ref: https://help.reckon.com/category/t3ohcrldj7-api-products-reckon-one-api-v2

    Hi Markus. The reason we don't have an institution listed is because they have not agreed to share their data. I'll pass this over to our partnership team to investigate.

    Hi, is it possible to at least add wise as a recognised financial institution so I can create the wise account to accommodate for transfers.

    That's great to hear. I understand other banks have already implemented Open Banking but are not currently available in Reckon One bank data direct feeds (ING for example).

    When will Reckon onboard banks that have already implemented open banking?
