Subject: Roommates Can Easily Split Payments with New App

Tallahassee, Fla. – College students and others who have roommates can now split, organize and track shared bills and expenses with a new, user-friendly mobile application. PayMyRoommate, developed by Tallahassee-based computer programming firm Paul Consulting Group, is a free Web and mobile application designed to facilitate expense splitting between roommates and friends, allowing them to pay monies owed online while building credit.

With an easy-to-use platform, PayMyRoommate makes it simple to track money owed for stress-free living.  After a detailed invoice is created, users can add as many roommates or “piggies” as they need to split the bill. PayMyRoommate will then email the “piggies” with the amount owed to the user. The application uses PayPal to transfer payments between users. PayPal is a certified and trusted third-party e-commerce business.

“We developed PayMyRoommate to facilitate expense sharing between people who live together,” said Marc Paul, CEO of Paul Consulting Group. “PayMyRoommate was designed to be as simple as possible in order to make splitting joint expenses less complicated for the user.”

The PayMyRoommate mobile application has been released on Google Play and is scheduled to be released on iTunes mid-December 2014. The Web application is currently available to all users online at PayMyRoommate.com.

Members of the Triton College My Roots club/organization, walked around campus sporting black eyes and bruises in an effort to promote the dangers of domestic violence during their first annual event on Nov. 4th.

The event, with an estimated 55 attendees, discussed individual stories about being victims of physically and verbal abuse. Recent talks of violence in the media and celebrity battles were among additional conversations conducted during the meeting. In addition to the discussions, members of the club played videos of victims and performed a short skit and poem entitled “Flowers Today” about a woman who was beaten to death. The make up that was worn was to show how the results of physical abuse looks on both men and women. 

Shakana Polk, President of My Roots, indicated that this event is important to get the word out to our young men and women. 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime and 1 in 3 will be murdered by a former partner between the ages of 20-24. Men are also victims of nearly 3 million physical assaults; this needs to be known especially to the younger generation.”, Polk said.

All attendees took pledges to help speak out against domestic violence and to stand up for victims. The club also raised $150 that will be donated to the Purple Purse Organization that helps aid women who have escaped abusive relationships.

The Triton College My Roots club/organization focus is to have individuals get in touch with their past in order to embrace the future. Meetings are open to the campus Tuesdays from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the parachute room A.
