Tally | Virtual User (TVU)
To set up an online server computer for Tally.ERP 9, contact your Tally Partner, or any hardware vendor or cloud solution provider.
You can evaluate the solutions of various service providers and choose the one which addresses your business needs.
Once the server computer is ready, to enjoy Tally Virtual User (TVU) pack you need a valid Tally.ERP 9 license on the server.
When you want to use Tally.ERP 9, from any computer or any device (if your third party service supports remote connection),
connect to the server using the identified third party remote desktop tool. On the client computer, you do not need Tally.ERP 9.
Choosing hardware & software: You need to choose your hardware and software setup based on your business needs, and the facilities that different remote desktop tools provide. Data security, time & duration of service availability, number of simultaneous desktop sessions allowed, and so on are the other factors involved. Discuss these with your service provider, and finalise the setup. Your Tally.ERP 9 data is always on the online/remote server you are setting up. Therefore, discuss the details of data security, including backup facilities, with your service provider.
Access control in Tally.ERP 9: There is no change in the security options provided in Tally.ERP 9. As in the case of using Tally.ERP 9 on your desktop
, you can create users and allow access based on your requirements. Whenever a user connects to your company, the user can access the features for which you have allowed access.
For example, if your employee is at a client’s place and wants to check receivables or record receipts, it can be done.
However, the employee will not view your financial reports unless you have given permission.
After you set up Tally to be accessed in a virtualised environment, you can do the following.
Access Data from Anywhere: When you are away from your office, you can use any computer or device, on which the third party tool works, to access the desktop of your server computer. Then you can use Tally.ERP 9 as if you are using on a local desktop, to check your business status and record any transaction. If you need to work on your Tally.ERP 9 data from home (post office hours), you do not need to carry the data backup and restore it on the computer at home. When using Tally on a virtualised environment you are working on the same data set which is located at your office/cloud. You can also print vouchers and reports, based on the printer settings configured by your service provider.
Audit Accounts: You can allow your auditor to do verification of your books using remote desktop. For this, you just need to allow access to your server. Like you or your employees logging in to the company, the auditor also can log in and do the work. There is no need to have a separate data set – the auditor can work on the same data set.
To experience Tally.ERP 9 on a virtualised environment, you need to have TVU pack. Every edition of Tally product comes with default entitlement of TVU pack. If you want to avail additional TVU packs over and above your default entitlement during the free trial period, please follow below-mentioned steps.
1. Log in with the Tally.NET ID in www.tallysolutions.com
2. Navigate to Control Centre > License Management >Select the Serial Number
Who is a virtual user of Tally?
Tally virtual user (TVU) is nothing but an instance of Tally.ERP 9 running or being accessed over a virtualised environment or through tools like Windows RDP, Windows thin Client, Citrix, or similar technologies. In simple terms, if you use Windows RDP or similar technologies to access Tally.ERP 9, you will require a license with a Tally Virtual User entitlement.
Each Tally license comes with a default (free) lifetime entitlement of virtual users. You get one TVU pack free with a single user Tally.ERP license and 10 TVU packs with a multi-user license.
In case, you have a Tally.Server 9 license, you get an additional entitlement of 20 TVU packs for free. In total, you get 30 free TVU packs (20 Tally.Server 9 + 10 Tally.ERP 9 multi-user license)
