Tally was an early QL accounts package from Quest Automation Ltd which was sold as part of the 'Executive Series'.

Tally consists of Sales Ledger, Sales Invoicing and Stock Control and originally cost £115. A second module 'Tally II' covered Purchase and Nominal Ledgers, and cost an additional £59.50.

The modules were said to integrate not only with themselves, but will all four Psion programs (Quill, Archive, Abacus and Easel), so that you could for example, use Sales Ledger and Quill together to produce standard letters, or use Easel to display in graphic form the data entered in the Stock Control module.

The software was also supposedly designed to run both under both the CPM 68K Operating System and standard QDOS.

However, when Quest acquired the rights to QL Cash Trader in 1985, Tally was dropped in favour of the improved features included in QL Cash Trader.
