PFM platform, planwise and debt management solution, ReadyForZero announced a partnership today.

As a part of the partnership, planwise is featuring ReadyForZero in its Products section (see screenshot below).

ReadyForZero's services are advertised to planwise users who indicate they hold debt. When I tested the product this morning, the ReadyForZero product option was offered only when I indicated I owed a balance on a loan or credit card.

ReadyForZero, the startup that aims to get people out of debt faster, has helped users pay off $12.5 million of the $200 million in total debt under management. TechCrunch reported that frequent users are paying down their debt nearly twice as fast as infrequent users (see chart below).

RFZDebt.jpg

To help expand these numbers, the startup recently launched a platform for financial partners to make personalized offers. Here's how it works:

    1. Advertisers create customized offers based on the user's financial situation, for example credit score, debt-load, payment history, etc.
    2. ReadyForZero analyzes the offer for the user
    3. If it results in real savings, ReadyForZero passes it to the user
    4. If the user wants it, ReadyForZero connects them to the advertiser
