Tally.ERP 9 is one of the leading ERP and accounting software that solves almost all the accounting and business related problems. Like any other ERP software not all processes and features are available within Tally such as CRM, SFA, etc. However, it provides integration capabilities using which additional applications can be connected. It is also possible to extract data from Tally and provide custom reports according to business needs.
The ability to give access to the important APIs is what makes Tally user-friendly software. The APIs available in Tally are DLL, ODBC and XML and these APIs allow integration in two main modes – offline and online.
Tally-to-Tally integration is possible through synchronization. The process of synchronization happens when the information or data is replicated in two or more places. This is helpful for the branch offices for sending data to the main office and vice versa. The data synchronization happens in two ways – from server to client and vice versa. Tally software also allows export of reports in 4 formats like XML, HTML, ASCII and Excel. Masters and transactions can be directly imported in the XML format of Tally.
The two interfaces that help Tally communicate with the external world are XML and ODBC interface. ODBC or Open Database Connectivity helps in data accessing from any application, no matter which DBMS is there to handle the data. A database driver is inserted between DBMS and an app, to transform the database queries into easy to understand commands for DBMS. XML interface can become a foundation stratum of web services that can provide a basic framework for messaging on which the web services are formed.
