A very important and usable feature for multi-location company is synchronization. A process which will transfers your data from one location to another location online provided all the locations has to be maintain the same range / version packages.
Introduction to Tally Data Synchronization
A number of businesses in the Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SME) segment operate in more than one location. There is a need for updating accounting and inventory information at all locations, to ensure that the business runs efficiently and smoothly.
The frequency of updating data depends on three important factors
- The volume of data generated across each location.
- The need for having the latest updates, readily available at each location.
- The resources and cost involved in updation
Data Synchronization refers to a process where data is replicated between two or more locations. It enables the branch offices to send data to the head office and vice versa, over a network with a dynamic IP address or static IP address. Data Synchronization flows both ways, i.e., data flows from the Client to the Server and vice-versa.
Data Synchronization can be done using the Tally.Net Server or Direct Client Server. If the Tally.Net Server is used, then data is synchronized through the Tally.Net Server available on a public IP adress at a predefined port. If a private network is used, the data is synchronized using the customer’s static IP address.
The computer where Data Synchronization is initiated is termed as the Client. The computer to which it synchronizes is the Server
Benefits of Data Synchronization
The highlights of Data Synchronization are:
- Simple, efficient and cost effective mechanism.
- Simple set-up.
- Simultaneous updation of data at Server and Client.
- Single click for updating data.
- Adaptable to an occasionally connected environment.
