The world doesn’t stop, And neither should your future. HELP Your Future revolutionises the way you plan and manage your fiscal responsibility, unlocking your full potential by providing you all the necessary tools in a single easy to use service.

Identified Issues & Our Solution

Many of the features HELP Your Future provides are not unique and are often the main component offered on other platforms. These components however often have a poor UI/UX, and are only offered as a service. They are difficult to interpret, and regularly are buried behind multiple hyperlinks that can feel like you need a map to navigate to them. Help Your Future aims to resolve these issues by providing an easy to use platform that contains all the information you need displayed in a digestible form right on your dashboard. Careful considerations into maintaining a positive user experience have been made to ensure our platform is the only platform you need.

Stretch Goals

Due to the nature of hackathons there were many promising features that couldn't be implemented due to time constraints. These Include:
- Using data provided by the national skills commission to provide a quick and easy to use quiz that would assist users in assessing their skillset. Consequently an evaluation on the transferability of those skills could be made to assist with job prospects.
- Correlate HECS-HELP data with average income by career and location to give a more accurate representation of a user's fiscal status
