While working in the telecom industry, Lilli realized that once the telephone systems went in, the clients’ bills were not being reduced of excess charges. The discovery of the telephone company’s complicated billing procedures, and their overcharging of clients, sparked the idea for TRI. Lilli’s mathematical background, and understanding of the telephone company’s tariffs, allowed her to effect unprecedented refunds and reductions.
