The requirement of a secure way of sharing data by businesses with multiple branches has been fulfilled successfully by Tally Synchronization – a widely used feature of Tally Prime Software.
It is a process that consolidates or replicates the Tally data between two or more locations. The data is transferred from the head office to the branches, warehouses, or factories and vice-versa. But businesses must ensure to have the same version of TallyPrime at all locations where data is stored and need to be shared. Although, it is not necessary to have a continuous internet connection to facilitate synchronization.
Businesses can synchronize their data using any of the following modes:
- Online: For this mode, both the client and the server companies must be online during the data sharing process and connected through Tally.NET Server. The sync rule and data are smoothly transferred to the corresponding company.
- IP: This mode demands that both the client and the server companies be online and connected through a private network during the data sharing process. We recommend businesses to use a static IP address and the port number on which TallyPrime is running to seamlessly transfer the data over a private network.
- On-demand: The client and the server companies don’t have to be online while sharing data using Tally.NET Server.
The server stores the sync rule and data until the receiving company accepts it. Therefore, businesses can initiate a synchronization anytime without stressing about the other company being online. They can also delete the data on Tally.NET Server after the receiving party takes it or after seven days, whichever is earlier.
Advantages Of Tally Synchronization
Faster Response Time
The popular TallyPrime feature helps improve response times for data requests primarily for two reasons:
The processing of requests is via a local server that does not access a vast network, leading to faster retrieval rates.
Local processing takes the load off the central database server, reducing the competition for processor time.
The feature makes the data available locally instead of potentially expensive, less trustworthy, and sluggish connections to a single central database. Therefore, users can access the data locally without connecting to a central database. This saves them time and prevents data loss in the event of a network connection failure.
The Tally data is replicated in real-time in all systems, helping avoid data duplication. Also, it promotes easier access to the data that includes no errors and discrepancies.
The feature ensures that your business data remains secure while jumping from one system to another. It secures the transit of all data, such as payment or receipt information from the branch office, accounting masters from the head office, inventory-related data from the warehouse, etc.
To set the data synchronization feature, users don’t have to install a dedicated high-end infrastructure or hire skilled personnel to perform the set-up process. The Tally synchronization can be configured and implemented easily, allowing users to do data synchronization with a single click on a button.
The head office can timely access accurate MIS reports that foster better decision-making with the data synchronization feature.
Security That The Tally Synchronization Offers
Users with the owner credentials can set access rights for other users to confirm that only authorized users can accomplish specific tasks. This helps business owners protect tally data while their employees are working remotely. Here is what the new set of security controls for TallyPrime data synchronization possess:
- Client/Server Rule: Businesses can allow or disallow users to create, modify or delete the client or server rules. Also, they can even select the access type for different users as needed.
- Synchronization: Businesses can permit select users to conduct data synchronization from the client or server end.
- Sync Reports: Businesses have the power to provide access rights to users, letting or not letting them from viewing certain synchronization reports.
