Tally Solutions Makes Deeper Inroads in Kenya
The premier Indian software product company, Tally Solutions Pvt. Ltd (TSPL) announced today that it has recorded a growing customer traction in Kenya, with a total installed customer base of over 3,000 customers in Kenya. The company recently rolled out the latest release of its flagship product Tally ERP 9 for the Kenyan market, and has been focusing on its growth in Africa.
For the past 16 years, Tally has been enabling large, medium and small enterprises in Africa to manage accounting, streamline operations, and achieve higher business efficiency, while remaining iTax compliant. There are over 10,000 enterprises in Africa who are currently using Tally software for a variety of accounting and business management functions. In Kenya, Tally Solutions caters to customers across industry verticals, including manufacturing, retail trading and construction. The company set up its overseas office at Nairobi in August 2014 supporting a robust network of 74 authorized Tally Partners in the region.
Tally Solutions has further strengthened its presence in the African market by partnering with the Jotun Group, a global Norwegian chemicals giant, dealing with paints and coatings. Jotun, with its presence in more than 90 countries and with 9500 employees, anticipated several business challenges when it made inroads into the African market. Jotun has adorned several famous landmarks around the world, including the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Burj Khalifa in Dubai and Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
ERP 9 has been employed to manage the finance, logistics and supply chain operations of Jotun’s Kenya office, which was set up with the assistance of Tally’s regional team at Dubai, and Infobit Computer Solutions, a Tally Partner in Dubai. Further to implementing Tally.ERP 9, Jotun could easily run both the Kenya and in-future Morocco sites remotely with their main server at Dubai.
“Our experience of implementing Tally.ERP 9 in Kenya has been fantastic. Tally.ERP 9 easily fitted our needs; it was an extremely easy-to-operate software and an economically viable solution,” said Mr. K.R. Rao, Regional IT Manager (MEIA), Jotun UAE Limited. “Tally.ERP9 gave us the flexibility to adapt to the local and legal needs of the region. Also some of the existing employees in Jotun’s finance team were already aware of the product’s functionalities. This proved to be an additional asset to the company. Even the roll-out was extremely seamless and became operational as per plan,” he added further.
