Tally Solutions is about to launch their new products in India. With aim to empower SME and take benefits of Digital India, Tally is working on their new range of products.
Here is what we can expect from Tally
Very first thing Tally should do is to change it’s image of being an accounting software. Tally already tried that with introducing ERP in name, unfortunately it didn’t work the way it was expected.
It’s time for Tally to bring a solid platform and ecosystem which is secure, scalable and ready for the future. Move focus from product to the platform which will simplify business operations and improve productivity.
Here is what I personally feel Tally may do in 2019 to 2022
Some Products Tally may introduce in future
1. Tally Cloud
2. Tally for Manufacturers
3. Tally For SMB (Dealers & Distributors)
