Filling the Gap
Founded in 2012 by a financial management professional and previous Quicken user, CountAbout™ was designed as a functional, and easy-to-use personal finance application without annoying advertisements, and with the ability to create running balances, and custom categorization. As one of the few applications that imports data from Quicken and Mint, CountAbout automatically syncs data from banking, credit card and retirement accounts and is accessible from anywhere.
- CountAbout is the only cloud-based personal finance software that seamlessly imports data from Quicken and Mint.
- Offers running register balances
- Offers standard and custom categorization
- Clutter-free interface with no advertisements
Several years ago we were looking for online personal finance software that was richly functional, easy to use, and private. What was the result of that search? Absolutely nothing! Further conversations convinced us that we weren’t alone in looking for those missing ingredients. Because nothing existed to meet those needs, we did the next best thing — we created our own product, and we called it CountAbout.
Many online personal finance websites exist today, but key features are missing. For one thing, none of them can import Quicken® data. None offer complete privacy with no advertising. Few offer running register balances. And we realized that consumers are quickly becoming more confident in Cloud applications that free the user from being tethered to a desktop computer. We wanted to provide a product that users could access from home, at the airport, on the beach … wherever they have Internet access.
We wanted to provide a product that would offer standard categories for income and expenses, but also allow users to add a category, or delete built-in categories that aren’t needed. We wanted a clutter-free interface, with tips for those who need them to get started, and responsive customer support.
We don’t provide financial advice on CountAbout, but we believe it will provide the timely information you and your financial advisor need to make sound decisions.
We have other ideas that we plan to incorporate in the future, and if you have ideas we’d like to hear them.
