Smart-learning Software, Human Expertise Get Consumers Out of Debt Faster, Establish Healthy Financial Habits through Personalized Education
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — February 8, 2012 - SpringCoin, the leading online debt relief and financial education service, today announced the first automated debt relief coach with human expertise. The new SpringCoin (formerly known as its beta version, DebtEye) delivers the most personalized plans to get consumers out of debt faster and more cost-effectively than traditional credit counselors, debt relief and budgeting solutions. Unlike existing solutions, SpringCoin integrates rewards-driven, financial education and provides complete transparency so consumers can take full control over their finances.
America’s Debt Problem
Today the average American carries more debt than ever due to a few key reasons. First, most Americans lack of a basic level of financial education and money management skills. Second, wage increases have not kept pace with inflation and the general cost of goods and services such as medical care and tuition expenses. Third, Americans’ savings rates have been dropping steadily and many are at unhealthy financial risk. Up to 43 percent of U.S. households are just one unexpected financial event away from having to carry high interest debt (source: 2012 Assets & Opportunities Scorecard by CFED).
SpringCoin is better than existing solutions because it integrates highly advanced technology, software analytics, and personalized financial education to get consumers out of debt faster and create healthy, sustainable financial habits. To see how SpringCoin works, take a quick tour of features:www.springcoin.com/tour. Key benefits include:
The Right Plan for Each Individual — SpringCoin’s smart software determines the best plan for each individual by analyzing thousands of consumer debt cases and repayment programs. The software’s algorithms adapt on what has or has not worked well for a customer, delivering the most effective budgets and recommendations.
Negotiation Power — SpringCoin software empower consumers to directly negotiate lower payments and/or rate terms with creditors, automatically manage monthly payments, and track progress in real-time.
Integrated Financial Education — Improving financial literacy is at the core of SpringCoin — not on the periphery as optional articles. Education content is delivered through weekly quizzes, challenges, and budgeting recommendations. It is also tailored for the financial habits and goals of each individual customer.
Transparency — Unlike other solutions, SpringCoin customers always know exactly how much money is paid to their creditors and to SpringCoing over any period of time. More transparency helps consumers better track their progress and get out of debt faster.
Real-time Feedback — SpringCoin software tracks spending behavior and sends timely alerts and recommendations to help customers achieve their goals and get better results.
Rewards — By completing weekly quizzes and challenges, SpringCoin customers also earn rewards at various point-levels and are automatically entered to win weekly raffle prizes (e.g., Amazon.com gift cards).
Safe and Secure - SpringCoin uses the same 128-bit encryption technology that banks use to ensure customer data is completely safe and secure.
SpringCoin is also more affordable than comparable credit counseling solutions, which range from $50 – $120 per month for full-service plans. The SpringCoin Basic plan ($8 / month) provides spending monitoring, bill reminders, basic financial education tools and rewards. SpringCoin Premium ($35 / month) is a full-service debt relief plan that provides all of the benefits above and negotiation tools for lower payments, automatic bill payments, a complete set of financial education tools, and 24/7 financial advice.
