Husband and wife team Amit Kothari and Pravina Pindoria are the founders of real-time process management app, Tallyfy. The St.Louis-based cloud software helps companies of all sizes streamline their processes and manage their workflows more efficiently.
Meet the Founders
As serial entrepreneurs, founding husband and wife team Amit Kothari and Pravina Pindoria, are no strangers to start-ups, and have previously co-founded several ventures together. These include Momento Services in 2012, which specialized in helping people tell their stories through photograms, and a range of other personalizable products.
In 2013, they noticed that despite all the technology on the market, running a variety of tasks among a mid-sized team was still in a word, messy. From emails and events to documents and deadlines, they couldn’t believe that the majority of business processes were still managed using a disorganized mx of painful flow charts and forms.
Surely a software solution to this chaos was possible. Eureka!
Kothari and Pindoria envisioned an intuitive, real-time app that would allow teams to run multi-step workflows, from any device, within a chat-like experience.
Armed with this cutting-edge proposition, the founders hit the start-up trail, impressing the Chilean Government so much that they won Start Up Chile in 2013, and $40k worth of grants towards developing their idea. Further grants followed – including $50k from US incubator Arch Grant in 2014 – and Kothari and Pindoria went on to launch Tallyfy officially in October 2015.
A combination of quick growth, solid revenue, and customer validation helped the founders raise $125k investment from 500 Startups in April this year, and they’re hoping that their current journey through the Alchemist Accelerator will prove just as successful.

Plus, greater transparency and ease of tracking tasks helps organizations pinpoint inefficiencies and implement improvements quickly, helping them overcome bottlenecks and scale instead of stagnate.

The PowerBuilder makes it easy to transform paper processes into user-friendly, actionable checklists, and allows you to define the who, what, when, and how of every step; real-time comments and customizable activity streams make collaborating on specific processes effortless; and an automated task tray prioritizes alerts, delays, and other problems for you.
