While trying to purchase software to manage the business, I found the prices were in the range of Rs 80,000 to Rs 90,000, and we could not afford it. In order to address this requirement with an affordable and robust solution, we developed TMBill as an operating system for the F&B industry,” said Rahil in a statement.
