The availability of remote access, other remote capabilities and other facilities which come with Tally.Net have brought about this possibility of a paradigm shift in the way customers use Tally. Let us see some of the ways in which customers may use and benefit from Tally.ERP 9.
I have a factory (factory-cum-office) which is some distance away from where I stay. I now have the ability to look at what happened yesterday (sales, purchases, collections, expenses, production etc.) before I even have my breakfast and based on this I can now give instructions for the day. This means that the office now starts functioning effectively and does not have to wait for me to arrive at the factory. This is a huge improvement in efficiency.
Soon, I can simply go to my vendor’s office, negotiate a purchase and using his computer and Tally, log on to my data, with my license (username and password),* enter a purchase order and print it out on his printer! .
I take a long time to travel to work and I am able to work from my car using my lap top, which has an internet data card. I discovered that I don’t even need a separate license for operating remotely from my lap top
*When I am on vacation, I don’t like to be troubled. I will be now able to SMS queries to my copy of Tally.ERP 9 and get the answers. I would prefer to do this, rather than to have a two-way conversation with my accountant!
My sales people do one better than that. I have bought each one of then a USB memory device costing a few hundred rupees. An educational version of Tally runs from that. Even if our customers don’t have Tally, my sales person simply borrows the use of the customer’s machine and he is connected to our Tally .He can now look at the customer’s outstandings, order positions etc.
I am an engineer and I don’t want to be bothered about all these statutory conditions and formalities. I also would like my peace mind. I don’t want to be worried and wondering about the possibility of some criminal case slapped on me – simply because I did not know. Ideally, I would like some CA to ensure that my accounts, various aspects of taxation and the way I have recorded my transactions etc. are OK. Today, thanks to the special access my auditor can have to my information, it becomes Practicable and affordable for him, and therefore for me to ensure that my company is doing everything right.
