"It is an important step for consumers. They are able to learn about financial services and access a broad range of data, along with an array of transactional services."

"Quicken's vision is not to compete with existing financial services companies, but to bring them together in a marketplace, complemented by the world's leading personal finance software, to create a web and software relationship where consumers can manage their money," says Russell Hutchinson.
