Licensing in TallyPrime
Once you purchase TallyPrime, you need to activate the license to enjoy the full benefits of this new and improved product. TallyPrime provides you with the flexibility to choose between various editions and license options.
Silver Edition (Single User): The Silver edition is a single-user license. Only one user can access the license at a time in a LAN environment. For another user to access the same license, all other instances of TallyPrime currently using the license must be closed.
Gold Edition (Multi-User): The Gold edition is a multi-user license. Multiple users can access the license at the same time in a LAN environment. You can use TallyPrime Server along with TallyPrime to manage the concurrent usage of company data. TallyPrime Server also provides a secure environment for your company data.
Regular: You can use the product on your computer forever. When you purchase any edition of the product, you will get free product updates and TSS for a year. Thereafter, you have to renew TSS once a year to get continuous product updates and other services.
Rental: You can use the product on your computer and avail the license for a certain period, such as one, three, or twelve months. Thereafter, you can extend the rental period by renewing TSS, or you can buy a regular license.
Educational: You can use the product on your computer, but with certain limitations. For example, you can enter data only for the first five dates in a month. However, you can use all the features of TallyPrime in this mode.
To manage licenses, TallyPrime has the concept of site licensing. A site refers to a single license of TallyPrime, TallyPrime Developer, or TallyPrime Server that has been installed and activated. You have the flexibility to choose between two types of site licenses: single-site and multi-site.
Single site: A single license of TallyPrime, TallyPrime Developer, or TallyPrime Server is called a single site. The licensing operations are managed by the administrator.
Multi-site: In multi-site licensing, more than one license of TallyPrime, TallyPrime Developer, or TallyPrime Server is activated on different machines or locations, associated to a primary account. Each site is given a unique identification by the user, which is called a Site ID.
