Quick Note: Roommate Management 101

February 10, 2012

Today’s Quick Note discusses a post on television station KVOA (kvoa.com) in Tucson, Arizona. The post, titled “UA student designs website for splitting the bill with roommates,” discusses a new product, zsplit.com. Founded by University of Arizona business student Matthew Garten, zplit helps manage money collection and payout from roommates. The post tells us about the impetus for the idea:

Matthew Garten is like any other college student who dreads the monthly burden of money collection.

“I currently live in a six bedroom house and I run all the finances whether it be paying for our TV or paying for the electric bill. It’s always a problem collecting money from roommates and they are your friends and you don’t want to create internal problems in your house all because of the bills.”

[italicized material is excerpted from the KVOA post, and all italics were added by me]

The post is short, but embeds a clip of an interview with Garten. It’s an interesting idea, and the post is worth a quick look.
