An Alternative For Quicken
Will Soon Be Here.
We are looking to rapidly build out a replacement for QUICKEN using an ERP open-source code foundation.

Why We're Building this
We have a good reason for building this...
We're trying to get a basic set of functionality out as soon as possible. Being able to enter transactions and run some basic reports will definitely prove that we have the correct data structure in place.
Once that is done we can focus on reports since that's a big part of Quicken's flexibility.
Following that will be downloading bank transactions and then adding more esoteric account types.
We haven't settled on pricing yet. Our thoughts are something along the following lines:
- Initial subscription pricing between $29 and $99 per year
- Maybe lifetime pricing for the first 100 users at $x
- Prices will likely increase as we get to feature parity with Quicken
- As you might expect, early adopters will likely end up with a lot of benefits for free that later adopters will have to pay for
This is probably going to be the most difficult part of this project. We're looking at using PLAID for this.
Not sure. Many banks already include this for free so it seems a bit redundant for a V1. Maybe later?
Unfortunately no. We looked at every opensource product out there and could find none that would compile down to an executable you can use locally.
But, we will eventually offer an option to have your own personal server instance in the cloud using servers at DigitalOcean or Linode.
That will probably cost between $15 and $25 per month (maybe more depending on the level of support we have to provide)
Yes. We're thinking 30 days.
Not sure. The quicken formats are hard to import. Maybe just simple transactions from registers that can be exported as CSV files?
Maybe shortly after V1 we'll have more import options.
