Folks,Apparently announced today.Quicken, one of the ‘first fintechs,’ is being sold again.https://techcrunch.com/2021/09/09/quicken-one-of-the-first-f...Not much solid info in the link.Regards,SJ Coleman
As someone who has used Quicken Premier for about 25 years for both my personal accounting and for that of two non-for-profits I was treasurer of, I'm glad to know Quicken's customer base has grown and the company is profitable. Hoping that means the new owners will follow the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" rule. I moved to the subscription service about a year and a half ago. It's worked well for me. Don't know what I would do if they start messing with the company and screw it up.
The software is what it is. If you want backup(s), download a full copy from the site. What could be problematic is if the back end quit working. Then you could not download transactions or prices.
or pay bills easily from one location/interface.
I have also been a Quicken User since the mid or early 90's. I only use Quicken to generate payments through my bank which has a legacy no-charge bill pay service that may come to an end when a pending merger is completed. But for the most part, I pay all my bills online, then record the transactions manually and wait for the downloaded transactions to reconcile the accounts. with the exception of my new 401k, almost all my accounts are able to automatically download transactions.FuskieWho notes the thing that jumped at him from the article was that there were 60% more customer care representatives than actual employees...-----Premium Home Fool: Ask me a Foolish Question, I'll give you a Foolish Response!Ticker Guide: The Walt Disney Company (DIS), Intuit (INTU), Live Nation (LYV), CME Group (CME), MongoDB (MDB), Trip Advisor (TRIP), Vivendi SA (VIVHY), Mimecast (MIME), Virgin Galactic (SPCE), Axon Technologies (AXON), 51Jobs (JOBS)Disclaimer: This post is non-professional and should not be construed as direct, individual or accurate adviceDisassociation: The views and statements of this post are Fuskie's and are not intended to represent those of The Motley Fool or any other sane bodyDisclosure: May own shares of some, many or all of the companies mentioned in this post: https://tinyurl.com/FuskieDisclosureFool Code of Conduct: https://www.fool.com/legal/the-motley-fools-rules.aspx#Condu...Invitation: You are invited to interactively watch Motley Fool Live online television: https://www.fool.com/premium/live/Call to Action: If you like this or any other post, Rec it.
