Editor's Note: This review has been removed from our side-by-side comparison because it no longer ranks as a top 10 product. The original review is below, but check out our current top 10 about Credit Counseling here.
Auriton Solutions has been impacting its community and clients in the realm of credit counseling since 1991. The company has identified four points of negative financial impact on the national front and eight on the family and strives to help restore the financial balance in individuals’ lives by education and counseling.
The organization has been a Better Business Bureau accredited business since 2002 and currently sports an A+ rating. They are also affiliated with AFCPE, AICCA and are ISO accredited.
Auriton Solutions has a fairly common selection of educational resources including financial articles, informational links, an emailed monthly newsletter, online classes, quizzes and videos. The site also offers some useful tools and worksheets that consist of a spending diary, setting goals worksheet, cost of credit calculator, mortgage calculators and budgeting worksheets and charts.
Auriton Solutions provides personal credit counseling, housing counseling, budgeting and money management guidance and debt consolidation. It doesn’t provide bankruptcy education and certification. The site does feature debt consolidation which they refer to as a debt management program. This is a confusing mixture of terms but after researching the site’s service we discovered that what they are really offering is a debt management program. For additional clarification of the differences between the two types of financial services, check out our Debt Consolidation Review.
The site design is very rough and inconsistent. The organization of information is rather burdensome and the tools and educational materials are scattered throughout the site although many of them can be accessed through the Learning Center. There isn’t a search function to make finding information easier either. Contacting Auriton Solutions consists of calling their toll free or local phone number or sending an email. The site also only supports the English language.
Overall the site has a mashed-together feeling which undermines the good intentions and services Auriton Solutions provides. As for the best credit counseling sites, we’d suggest you look into our top-ranked sites, AAA Fair Credit Foundations, Springboard and Money Management International for organizations with a lot to offer.
