Tally even more simplified
Tally exhibits its power of simplicity but there’s always room for improvement. TallyPrime is way more simpler than Tally.ERP 9 as it gives you the option to go to any screen from any screen using the ‘Go to’ feature. In Tally.ERP 9, you cannot skip screens, you need to go to Gateway to Tally screen and then move through different screens to finally reach the required screen. Whereas in TallyPrime, you can go to the required screen irrespective of which screen you are currently on by simply typing the name of the screen in the ‘Go To’ bar. That is how simplified Tally is.
Faster user interface
Speed is directly proportional to the efficiency of the work force, where quality work plays an important role. While Tally cannot ensure your workforce delivers quality performance, it surely can empower you with the speed needed to achieve the desired efficiency. The user interface introduced in Tally Prime, allows you to access important functions from the top of the screen by giving you a fixed Menu bar with different menus like - Company, Data, Exchange, Go To, Import, Export, Email, Print and Help. This Menu bar stays fixated on your Tally screen regardless of which screen you are working on.
Tally is know for its ability to accommodate and serve different departments of a business. It also helps the top management in decision making. One of the biggest reasons, Tally is used is for the statutory compliance. Every requirement in terms of compliance is enabled in Tally. And thus the latest version of Tally i,e Tally Prime empowers its users by providing easy connected E-invoice generation, Single and bulk E-way bill generation, GSTIN/HSN code verification, reports showing the summary of Invoicing and E-way bill generated and/or pending to generate, etc.
Reports can be viewed online in both Tally.ERP 9 as well as Tally Prime. The user experience has been improved in the latest Tally version. In the older versions, you have to zoom in and out as per your requirement. Also to view the columns which are not visible, you have to scroll through to read the row title and column titles. This experience has been improved in Tally Prime. The reports adjust as per your screen size and you can view the report without having to zoom in and out. You can also save report configurations for future viewing in Tally Prime. This saves your time considerably as you can directly open reports with the previously used configurations.
All the other mentioned points in some way or the other improve the efficiency of the software. One important feature in Tally Prime is how you can optimize your invoice space to ensure less paper is used. This print optimization feature is really helpful as in previous versions, a lot of blank space was wasted without the option to optimize.
Complete multiple tasks
In Tally.ERP 9 and all previous versions, only one task can be completed at a time and all other tasks have to wait till the ongoing task is completed. This has been worked and improved in TallyPrime. You can jump from any given task to other task as per its priority. Thus it gives you the flexibility to work as per your choice of work.
Advance partial payment
This is a common practice and is even more important in a credit period case. There are higher chances of a payment recovery when an advance partial payment is taken at the time of a deal.
It’s just a matter of a few days until you get used to the new interface. It is highly recommended to always use the latest version of any software as it is considered more stable and has better security than the previous versions.
Tally.ERP 9 is easy to use and Tally Prime is even better and simpler. Here’s how you can upgrade your Tally to TallyPrime.
