Pros

Tally has been around for quite sometime but it is just beginning to live up to the billing, it has added a mobile version now and that's very functional. It is user friendly and quite easy to set up

Cons

Post Implementation, a user without deep understanding of accounting would find troubleshooting very arduous

Customer support is really too bad, many times you will not get connected via phone support and email support is very worst, reply will be after a week.

Pros

GST implementation is really appreciated, some bad marks are you cannot control or lock the previous date invoice numbers which is very important for GST registered users, if your configuration of numbering is automatic the if you change any one number in between all the invoices will be affected, It should not be happen after filing GSTR1 report.

Cons

Reporting mechanism is fantastic, accuracy, front end look and excel export are awesome. More than that filtering options are really helpful to generate custom reports to submit the reports to management or higher authorities.

Pros

The most thing i like about this program is the price, it is the most competitive price in the market i have seen for the services given.
Easy to install.

Cons

Two thing i hated while using the program.
First, sometimes the customer support wasn't as required to be.
Second, the old fashion design of the program, it reminded me of the 1990s.

I have been using this software as a bookkeeper in handling inventory management, statutory compliance and financial accounting of the business. Following daily transactions has thus been easy since they can followed sequentially. the information is captured as transactions are being executed thus promoting the accountability and accuracy of information.

Pros

One of the things I like most with this software is its ability to adopt to the changing needs of a business needs today. It has the ability to adopt them with ease and and also ensures the business data is safe and secure. Through the help of partner support, Tally provides support for training and installation.

Cons

The software requires the user to have some accounting knowledge to effectively work with it. After the installation, the user can hardly grasp the accounting knowledge to facilitate the operations.

Simply the best indian accounting software. They give you regular updates in tune with the dynamic environment.
There is a new update just few weeks after a law change. There is nothing you can't do with this software.

The Cost of the product is very high. A multi user gold subscription Costa a lot. Prevents the small enterprises from adopting it
After GST, it's become too complex. Would be tough for a person to handle without proper updation on the software
