    • NEW FEATURES OF 6.3RELEASE 1
      The Extended Enterprise System
      The new Tally ees 6.3 comes with breakthroughs in collaborative technology that extend your company's capability of managing information across your software applications and your offices, with your business partners and your managers-on-the-move. All this leads to accurate decisions for improved profits.

    • NEW FEATURES OF 6.3RELEASE 1(CONTINUED)
      Reorder Levels
      Reorder level is that quantity in hand for a stock item, reaching which, you should order your supplies. The importance of reorder level arises from the desire to have sufficient stocks to service customer orders and at the same time not to have unnecessarily high stocks. Therefore, the points to be considered in deciding reorder levels are the lead time for suppliers to deliver stock , the delivery time specified by the customer, and the stock in hand to satisfy orders in the meantime. In simple mode, Tally accepts your specified quantities only. In advanced, Tally considers past consumption patterns to suggest reorder levels. You can however, give your own levels. You may also specify the minimum quantity that is to be placed for each order in either simple or advanced mode.
      The purpose of specifying reorder levels is to obtain a report that indicates the stocks that need to be ordered. Hence, we will first specify and then obtain the report.

    • NEW FEATURES OF 6.3RELEASE 1(CONTINUED)
      Aged Stock Analysis (Ageing Analysis)
      A very important function of Working Capital management is monitoring stocks. Money locked up in stocks can adversely affect the liquidity of a company and every company strives or should strive to reduce stock levels to the optimum. Every business (except perhaps the liquor and antiques dealers) would prefer to dispose of older stocks as they might deteriorate with time, go out of fashion, or simply get forgotten. Tally's aged stock analysis or Stock ageing enables you to know the age of stocks in hand according to when they were received and the purchase value.

    • NEW FEATURES OF 6.3RELEASE 1(CONTINUED)
      Scenario Management
      Scenario management is a management tool that enables different views of your information, both accounts and inventory related, by selectively including certain types of vouchers without affecting the base data. This is useful in reports with provisional figures without actually putting the entries through the main books. It is also useful for forecasting by entering forecast figures in provisional vouchers and including them to get forecasted figures.
      The vouchers that are used in Scenario Management are:
      Optional Vouchers
      Memorandum Vouchers
      Reversing Journals

       Outward Connectivity
      Pick up data from Tally directly into other programs like Microsoft Excel or Word without any programming! Print labels for greeting cards from the ledger addresses stored in Tally! Even create templates for the likes of Audit Reports and Schedule VI forms and plug in data from Tally. Tally's database is now open for use in most popular programs to give you the unlimited flexibility of creating your own reports using up-to-date data from Tally.
       Inward Connectivity
      On the other hand, Tally ies 7.2 is capable of being programmed by TallyExperts to use data from other systems much more easily. This permits you to continue using other systems and use some of their data in Tally as if they were parts of one integrated system. For example, a customer contact management program may contain various details like status of an order and last contact made. Bring in that data into Tally to merge into a report containing outstanding balances. Any changes in the other data will be immediately reflected in Tally.
    • NEW FEATURES OF 6.3RELEASE 1(CONTINUED)

    • Release 1.2
      TallySynchronization
      Synchronization refers to the process of Tally data being replicated between two or more locations. This enables a branch office to send its data to the head office over the Internet or a private network. Tally provides complete control over the frequency of replication. If the user is connected on a leased line, he can choose to replicate after every transaction entry. If the user is not connected on a leased line, he can post his updates at specific intervals. Synchronization is both ways - i.e., all data from the client company goes to the server and all data from the server company gets copied to the client company. After the synchronization has been set up, replicating data between the locations is a single click activity.
      To replicate, the user at the client needs to select - Gateway of Tally -> Import Transactions -> Synchronization -> Synchronize. Tally connects to the server, finds out the status of the last transfer (if any) and exchanges the incremental data that was entered after the last transfer. Tally also takes care of creating all masters required to save the transaction on the target machine (This will work with TallyServer and TallyClient capabilities - which is available a

    • Major Changes and Enhancements
      There may be minor variation in reports during migration of data from Tally 7.2 to Tally 8.1 due to the changes listed below:
      LIFO and FIFO valuation method
      Sales and Purchase vouchers passed on a single day now display in the Stock vouchers report in the order of their entry thus ensuring effective functioning ofLIFO and FIFO Stock valuation methods.
      For example, In Tally 7.2, A purchase invoice followed by a sales invoice and then again a purchase invoice will display in the stock vouchers report with all the sales entries listed first followed by all the purchase entries.
      Tally 8.1, however, displays the vouchers in the order of their entry –Purchase – Sales – Purchase.
      Std Cost and Std Price Valuation method
      If you have not set Set Standard Rates? in Stock Item masters but have set Costing Method to Std Cost and Market Valuation Method to Std. Price. In Tally 7.2, the First Purchase cost was taken into consideration for the Std Cost Valuation and the First Sale price for Std Price valuation methods.
      However, Tally 8.1 accurately considers the Last Purchase cost for Std Cost Valuation and the Last Sale Price for Std Price valuation
    • Average Cost
      When Multiple Sales and Purchases are made against Receipt and Delivery Notes at a rate different from that specified in the Receipt and Delivery notes
      For Example: Let us assume you have passed a Receipt Note for 100 nos. of an item @ Rs. 100 per item. Subsequently you pass a Purchase Invoice for 30 nos of the item @ Rs. 120 against the above Receipt Note. This means that some items are still pending against the tracking number.
      In Tally 7.2, the difference in the rates would be incorrectly included in the original value The balance sheet viewed with Avg. Cost valuation method displays closing stock values at Rs. 10,600.
      This has been resolved in the new Tally 8.1, which accurately displays the Avg. Cost closing stock valuation in the balance sheet as Rs. 10,000.
      On Account values were being taken as 'overdue' in Ratio Analysis in 7.2
      In Tally 7.2, On Account values were taken into consideration while calculating values for Due till today in Ratio Analysis.
      Tally 8.1 has resolved this and displays only the outstanding values in Due till today. (for Sundry Debtors and Creditors)
      Pending Tracking number values were approximate, even though quantities were accurate (causing few Paise difference depending on context)
      Tally 7.2 used to display pending Delivery/Receipt with approximate values, causing a small difference in the values.
      Tally 8.1 has resolved this and displays the pending Delivery/Receipt Notes values accurately.
    • Miscellaneous Changes and Enhancements
      Tallysav.dat file
      The Tallysav.dat file in the tally folder is now Tallysav.tsf.

      However, when you migrate Tally 7.2 data to Tally 8.1, the 4 digit-data file in the 7.2 folder is converted to a 5 digit-data file with 0 prefixed. Example: 00001, 00002 and so on…..
