Use our API to automate report and dashboard generation.

Power-users can use tools such as Python Pandas, Javascript, Ruby, or any other language to crunch numbers and then share them with colleagues via our API.

Once a report has been created, our web-based editor can be used to add annotations, analysis or change what types of visualisations are used.

We can help you set it up. We can make your market research operation more automated, efficient, and dynamic. Get in touch and we will help you integrate your business with Tally, so mundane manual tasks are resigned to history.

Automated wave/language reporting. PowerPoint files and Excel tables can be automatically scheduled and emailed to stakeholders. A script with only a few lines of code (less than five lines, we promise!) can generate multiple, branded PowerPoint documents in multiple languages.

Run significance tests with javascript or any other programming language. Tally's powerful cross-tab calculator can include results from sig-testing, fine tuned to replicate existing methodologies from providers such as Askia or Unicom/Dimensions.
