How was TallyDekho Started

The idea and inspiration came from small businesses, where they don't have a full-time accountant. Business owner is totally into everyday fire-fighting. The founders took insight from the fact that accounting is the heart of any business and they needed to create something to bring it in the control of business owners.

As we know, Tally ERP is offline, and already has a big market as of today. So they discussed this problem with a few business owners and chartered accountants and then developed a prototype and did water testing.

The initial idea was to create an application for tally reports and GST return/airway bills etc. But when they stepped into the market, they realized that this product can solve a serious problem and can benefit businesses in various aspects but it was important to keep the application lean and clean. Since every piece of information is not required, it took them time to understand the volume of need and they are still doing it. Because overburdened information kills the real idea.

The founding team discussed the idea with their business friends, chartered accountants, and few accounts professionals. However, it was not accepted by all at once and it took efforts to make people understand.

Initially they could not understand the importance. But when we explained how you can make decisions on expenses, how you can save late fees to departments. And it has lot of value. Then they had ore ideas on importance of this solution - Ashish says

The idea behind the name “TallyDekho” is the fact that people see their reports on mobile. The team always wanted Hindi touch to the name as the product was mainly designed for small and medium businesses. Hence they decided the name to be 'TallyDekho'.

When they thought about the tagline and discussed it with the team, everyone suggested that it is related to the account so they can use 'Hisaab-Kitaab'. Another one said the data can be seen on fingertips so 'Ungliyon' word can be used and finally they came up with "Hisaab Ungliyon Pe".

Also, they came up with one more tagline while discussing the introductory video, as they are accessing the accounting data with security so the tagline becomes 'Ab karein Hisaab, Data ki Suraksha ke sath'.
