Quicken last week started soliciting testers for a cloud-hosted edition of its namesake personal finance software.
The newly-independent company — sold to private equity firm H.I.G. Capital last month — asked for volunteers to try out Hosted Quicken for Windows (HQW).
HQW will kick off this month and run for a year, Quicken said.
The hosted Quicken will not be a true cloud application. Instead, it will rely on Quicken 2016 for Windows running on servers at a data center maintained by Hudson, N.H.-based Right Networks, which currently hosts Intuit’s QuickBooks and Microsoft’s Office. (Before its sale to H.I.G., Quicken was part of Intuit.)
