About Our Client - Shridhan Automation
Shridhan Automation, a distinguished manufacturer of field instrumentation for critical industries like Oil & Gas, Power, and Pharmaceuticals was facing critical challenges with their existing accounting system.
While the company had integrated Odoo into key functions such as sales, purchase, inventory, and manufacturing, they still relied on Tally for accounting due to staff familiarity. With Tally’s limitations becoming apparent, Shridhan Automation decided to transition its accounting processes to Odoo ERP.
To ensure a seamless migration, the company partnered with Navabrind, a prominent technology solutions provider with more than a decade of experience in Ecommerce and ERP solutions.
Challenges and Drawbacks of Tally
Despite being a widely used accounting software Tally’s drawbacks posed several limitations for Shridhan Automation:
- Lack of Modernization: Tally’s stagnation in adopting cloud computing and modern CRM capabilities hindered Shridhan Automation’s operational growth.
- Non-Intuitive User Interface: The complexity of Tally’s user interface made it challenging for non-accounting staff to navigate effectively.
- Customization Constraints: Tally’s limited customization options prevented Shridhan Automation from tailoring the software to meet its specific accounting needs.
- Cost and Learning Curve: Tally’s cost, combined with the time required to master its user interface, led to inefficiencies and increased expenses.
The Decision to Transition to Odoo
In pursuit of a comprehensive and effective accounting solution, Shridhan Automation made the strategic decision to migrate its accounting processes to Odoo ERP. However, this transition required careful planning, data migration, and process optimization to ensure a seamless shift.
