About Tiller Money

At Tiller, we believe money matters because life matters more.

We make the only service that syncs your daily financial transactions with customizable Google Sheet templates. Tiller combines the flexibility and control of spreadsheets with the ease of automation. 

The Power of Spreadsheets for Achieving Personal Goals

Our team tried dozens of personal finances apps and tools before the idea for Tiller came along. They all left us wanting more. They were either too complicated, locking our data into proprietary systems, or too simple, providing little more than a financial snapshot.

In our work lives, we managed budgets and ran companies using spreadsheets. So naturally we found ourselves using spreadsheets to manage personal finances. Spreadsheets simply offered the best customization options to manage our unique, individual money goals.

However, despite their power, it was always a hassle to cut and paste daily financial data into our spreadsheets.

Rich or Poor, People Hate Not Knowing Where Their Money Goes

Inspired to build better tools to manage finances, we started interviewing people; lots of people. We discovered many others were also frustrated with their personal finance tools. Through these interviews, we found a core group of people who were very engaged in managing their finances – they too were using spreadsheets!

All this Experience Came Together to Form Tiller Money

We want to empower everyone to manage their finances with the control and flexibility of a spreadsheet.  We make it easy by automatically updating your Google Sheet with your bank data each day and providing simple, yet powerful, finance templates.

If you’re not already a customer, join the movement. Take control of your finances so you can enjoy everything else that matters more.
