How to choose the best accounting software for small businesses in Bangladesh

Personalize the Business Reports the Way You Want

Salient features of TallyPrime


Invoicing is the basic need of any business because it lets you keep track of all the business transactions that have taken place. When running a building material business, you want to track all the payments received or those that are pending. The invoice is proof of the transactions for the buyer and the seller.

You can create professional invoices using TallyPrime and you can customize them as per your business requirements. You can add a logo, select from a range of business addresses, and so on so that every invoice is exactly how you want it to be. The software supports multi-currency and multiple-price when generating invoices.

Online Business Reports

For any business, having quick access to reports is a crucial factor to improve decision making. With TallyPrime’s 400+ reports, you can get a 360° insight into all crucial business aspects. TallyPrime’s intuitive “Go To” feature allows you to easily search for any business reports, thereby improving your business efficiency. What’s more? With TallyPrime you can now access all your business reports from mobile or any device, from anywhere seamlessly.

Payroll management

As your building material business grows, you will need to opt for a payroll management system if you don’t have one already. But if you choose TallyPrime, you get the payroll management aspect with the rest of the software so you don’t need to purchase it separately. You can easily do a lot with TallyPrime such as group employees by department or work.

TallyPrime is flexible when it comes to managing payroll. You can also define and quickly process the payments to your employees. Processing payroll with TallyPrime is one of the easiest tasks you can perform.

Inventory management

Inventory management is critical to building material business success because you want the ability to track all your building materials in real-time. TallyPrime has an embedded inventory management system whereby you can carry out simple and complex tasks with ease. You can even have more than one product line and manage it with ease.

TallyPrime’s re-order level enables you to maintain stocks so that it automatically re-orders items when the level drops under a certain level. It also comes with job work and job costing features so every cost is accounted for and you can work towards decreasing costs for particular tasks. You also get warehouse management, godown management, and more with TallyPrime.

Credit and cash flow management

Building material businesses need to manage their cash flow and credit. Experts advise that doing so regularly ensures you are on top of your finances. Think of it as ‘a stitch in time saves nine’ because credit and cash flow must be continuously monitored. If this is not done, then your business will suffer and it can affect your operations before you know it. TallyPrime provides thorough management of cash flow and credit.

TallyPrime provides ageing analysis whereby you can check the pending bills. Perhaps a business promised to pay you two months ago but there is no news from them. Or perhaps someone owes you for the past year. TallyPrime provides insight into your cash flow, thereby allowing you to follow up so that you get those bills paid by those customers. TallyPrime also comes with credit management as you can set credit limits based on your customers.

Business reports

Did you know that you can generate over 400 reports with the help of TallyPrime?

Do you want to perform a thorough analysis of a business aspect such as a particular stock? Or do you want a general report of your inventory? You can get both from TallyPrime. TallyPrime lets you in the driver's seat and you get to decide the details and what the report should have. The accurate business reports ensure you have reliable reports that you can trust and make decisions that can change the course of your business. 

Cost control and analysis

During certain times, you can expect delays which can add to your costs as you have to store the building materials for longer than you had originally planned. Unexpected expenses can lead to costs being incurred. As a business, you want to prevent it when possible or control the damage before it is too late. TallyPrime helps you with business forecasting.
