Fyle’s customers include HeroFincorp, Investec, Capillarytech, Teach For India, RPG group. The company has introduced a data extraction engine that can identify and reproduce data from any kind of receipt with a single click. It also has integrations with Microsoft Outlook and GSuite, which can be used to file any expense without manual data entry. The company claims to have nearly 45,000 users from 42 countries.

Last year in February, Fyle raised US $400,000 or about Rs 2.7 crore, in a seed funding round led by early-stage fund Pravega Ventures and BeeNext. Angel investors including redBus cofounder Phaninder Sama, Zivame founder Richa Kar and Joydeep Sen Sarma, cofounder of cloud company Qubole, also took part in the funding round.
