The Story Behind Tigersheet’s Inception
Having worked in one of India’s largest software houses, Siddharam Shingshetty, Founder and Director at Tigersheet, realized that most applications that businesses need are built of 4 basic blocks – 1) the ability to add new, edit and create records, 2) create workflows and notifications, 3) manage who can see, edit and update which data and 4) the reports.
He understood that every business application, be it CRM, order tracking, billing and invoice, leave and attendance management or any other, is comprised of these very basic blocks. He also realized that most small businesses start out running these processes on simple spreadsheets, and once they grow big, they either struggle to do the same or need to invest heavily in custom software for each business process.
This realization led him to incept Tigersheet, a platform that combines the simplicity and flexibility of spreadsheets with the power and advanced feature set of complex applications (such as access control, notifications and alerts, report generation) in a user friendly platform that any business can customize for their own requirement.
A Leader with Vast Experience in his Bag
Siddharam Shingshetty has a background of a practicing software engineer. He brings to Tigersheet his experience of MBA, his experience in one of India’s largest software houses, as well as 10 years of experience of operating a highly successful software services business. Siddharam conceived Tigersheet as a solution that would answer the requirements of many of his clients and indeed his own business, where all applications have been replaced with Tigersheet.
The Initial Struggle that Paved Way
As every startup goes through initial roadblocks, Tigersheets went through a few as well. As a platform that can be applied in many businesses and across a wide range of applications, Tigersheet struggled to communicate its benefits to customers who might have been looking for a solution to a specific need.
Another struggle in the initial days was that customers were used to sophisticated applications and until Tigersheet achieved a critical mass of features, it was difficult to get customers to try it out. A very large investment has gone into making Tigersheet the advanced and highly usable platform, it is now, but through a lot of struggle in the early years, they managed to emerge as a winner.
