FREMONT, CA: Quicken, the maker of America's best-selling personal finance software, is partnering with universities to provide Simplifi, its award-winning finance app, to alumni.

Named "best budgeting app" by The New York Times' Wirecutter, Simplifi is the modern and easy way to manage one's finances. Simplifi offers an elegantly simple interface to allow people to see all their money in one place, maximize savings, better manage their spending, keep their bills as well as subscriptions in check, and get the insights needed to reach their financial goals with confidence. The app is customizable and flexible, provides positive reinforcement, and offers an ad-free experience.

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

"The earlier you start paying attention to your finances, the better off you'll be in the long term," stated Quicken chief executive officer Eric Dunn. "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," stated Chuck Harris, executive director for the Texas Exes. "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."
