Stressing on the importance of automation for SMEs, Samir Dixit, zonal head- west, Tally Solutions said, “Automation has reached the inroads of many businesses across sectors and enterprise companies are using it for its advantage. The same needs to be replicated to the largest SME sector. We at Tally understand the nerve of SME businesses and hence take a deep interest in providing them the best in class software to automate their daily operation. Our aim is to help and nurture the SME sector of the country and assist them in reaching their highest potential.”
Madhya Pradesh constitutes of over four lakh GST registered businesses out of which over three lakh are micro, small and medium enterprises. Gwalior itself constitutes to over 25,000 GST registered businesses and 18,000 SMEs, however, the adoption of automation in the city for SMEs is only 20 per cent and for micro and small businesses, it is a mere five per cent. With such a large base of companies operating in this sector and such low digitisation, it is imperative to bring to light the key benefits automation can bring in for enhanced productivity.
“Gwalior is one of the most prominent regions for us in the state. However, the region lacks technical know-how and has a traditional way of operation like manual billing, despite the growth opportunities to automation. Our intent is to reach over 10,000 SMEs in Gwalior by end of the Year 2019 and focus on providing the simplest and most user-friendly software product that will change the way businesses are operating today. We believe that tax professionals have a key role to play in getting SMEs to digitise their accounts and we work closely with them in this regard. We are currently also working on a Key Account Manager model to address business queries and make the experience pleasant. In fact, our team meets customers on a regular basis to understand their business and current usage to provide strategic insights,” added Dixit.
With the new financial year approaching, several businesses plan to streamline their business operations for a bigger and better year. Hence, it becomes even more critical for them to realise the benefits digitisation can bring to their daily operations. Along with better management of business data, automation can help with providing powerful business reports which can help business owners make decisions.
