Core Tagalys team

How it all Started

Tagalys was built on the learnings of building & scaling an online store. We were not very successful as retailers, but we learnt a lot about online retail – the challenges, costs & pain points. 

In 2011, Antony resigned from his management consulting job at Deloitte in New York to embark on his entrepreneurial journey as an online retailer.  Due to his management consulting background, he sought technology services from Palani (PC), who had his own firm serving hundreds of customers across verticals.

During this venture, both Antony & PC realized that the e-commerce platforms had no clue what products to display to visitors. Antony worked with PC & team, writing the code to start collecting analytics and building prediction models to determine what products to show visitors. 

Fortunate or not, this venture hit the graveyard of startups, for Tagalys to be born. Palani joined Antony and they worked to build an intelligent engine that learns visitor interest to merchandise online stores effectively.

“To become the worlds best Merchandising Engine for online retail” 

Today, we process over half a billion retail data points a month giving us insights across verticals. We do not want to be a product, but your extended partner that collaborates with you.

35 under 35 – Entrepreneur Award

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that amidst all the controversies between the different ideologies of faith, it is the religion of entrepreneurship that has engulfed and unified the country. Stable, highly-paid jobs at bluechip companies no longer seem as attractive. Young people today want to step out and start-up on their own. They want to create value, make an impact and solve a pain point.
