The Finance Club of the School of Management Sciences (SoMS), Apeejay Stya University (ASU), in collaboration with Tally Institute of Learning, recently organised a three-day workshop on Tally, one of the most popular accounting softwares in India. 

The objective of the workshop was to impart knowledge of computer-aided accounting software — ‘TallyPrime Edit Log Rel 2.1’ — to the students of SoMS. The three-day workshop was conducted by the experts from the training partner, Saraswati Accountants Software Pvt Ltd.
