Quicken's Award-Winning Finance App Simplifi Offered to University Alumni

By Uloop Staff on October 29, 2020

The maker of America’s best-selling personal finance software, Quicken, is partnering with universities to offer its award-winning Simplifi finance app to alumni, according to a recent press release.

Named the “best budgeting app” by The New York Times’ Wirecutter, Simplifi easily allows users to stay on top of their money. Simplifi provides an elegantly simple interface to help people see all their finances in one place, better manage their spending, maximize savings, keep their bills and subscriptions in check, and get the insights needed to reach their financial goals. The app is flexible, customizable, and delivers an ad-free experience.

Leading-edge alumni associations who are proactively seeking to deliver tangible value to their alumni have become early adopters of the program. Partners include alumni associations from the University of Texas at Austin, James Madison University, University of Michigan, University of Mississippi, University of Oregon, and SUNY Buffalo State College, which collectively claim nearly 2 million alumni across the country.

“The earlier you start paying attention to your finances, the better off you’ll be in the long term,” said Eric Dunn, Quicken CEO. “Between the pandemic and the recession, this rising generation is facing significant challenges in establishing their financial lives with confidence. Our partnership with these leading alumni programs will give their graduates a head start on staying on top of their finances and reaching their financial goals.”

The UT Austin Texas Exes Alumni Program was the first to partner with Quicken on this program. “There are a lot of challenges that come with becoming financially independent — balancing your income and spending, paying down student debt, and figuring out how to achieve your financial and life goals,” said Texas Exes Executive Director Chuck Harris. “Simplifi is perfect for managing your money, while being very simple and intuitive to use. We’re thrilled to be offering it to our alumni, particularly our recent grads who are looking for contemporary ways to manage their money.”

As a trusted market leader for over 30 years, Quicken has helped 17 million customers track their budgets and achieve their financial goals. Simplifi aggregates data from more than 14,000 financial institutions so you have a snapshot of all your accounts, including banking, credit cards, bills, loans, investments, and more. The app lets you see what you have left to spend or save, after paying your bills, and offers you valuable insights to help you make better financial decisions.

Some of Simplifi’s key differentiators include:

- Watchlists – Keep an eye on what you care about by easily grouping spend into categories like kids, pets, household and transportation, to name a few.
- Projected Balances – Easily project balances and stay on top of recurring bills and expenses, so you can track against what is left to spend or save each month.
- Savings Goals – Maximize your savings by creating and tracking progress against an unlimited number of short- and long-term savings goals, such as a vacation, new home or vehicle, or that hot tub you’ve been eyeing.

Simplifi is available through the App Store, Google Play, and on the web. For more information, visit www.simplifimoney.com.
