Ramco is a fast growing enterprise software player disrupting the market with its multi-tenanted cloud and mobile-based enterprise software in the area of HCM and Global Payroll, ERP and M&E MRO for Aviation. Ramco Systems focuses on Innovation and Culture to differentiate itself in the marketplace. On the Innovation front, Ramco has been focusing on moving towards Cognitive and Robotic ERP with features such as –
- Talk It: With Voice, enterprise applications are gearing up to skip a whole new generation of User Interface. The novelty, ease and near zero effort required in designing an intuitive interface will drive more transactions to move the Voice way. Voice UI represents the interface of the future. It responds and works in ways that are easier and faster than brewing a cup of coffee. Voice based UI allows transactions to be carried out by simple voice commands on Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa
- BOT It: Bots (including chatbots), are becoming increasingly popular with companies that are looking for ways to better engage with customers and employees. These bots are artificial intelligent agents that are capable of understanding and responding to messages. The technology is at the point where there is enough built-in intelligence to enable bots to offer more complex suggestions to users as well as to learn additional responses based on past experiences. Transactions which earlier required users to login to a portal or or manually take permission can now get done with Ramco’s Chatbot by simply chatting after due authentication.
- Hub it: Organizations have evolved to a stage where they are able to clearly define different User Roles. Ramco uses this definition to design ‘Hubs’ which then act as one stop action center for the users. These Hubs offers Users clearly Visualized, Actionable Insights pertaining to their role in one single screen. A user with responsibility for Procurement will be able to do all his transactions from one screen. This saves 80% of time wasted navigating between transactions. That’s 80% more time to concentrate on Innovation!
- Mail it: Most business users are on the move and spend much of their time on mails. Requiring them to login to a system to do minor transactions will slow them and the Business down. Ramco with its ‘Mail It’ feature has brought the Enterprise System to where the user wants and when he wants it. The user can now transact on the ERP by sending a mail to the system to complete his transactions. The system is intelligent enough to understand user’s mail and take appropriate action. It is as simple as mailing your secretary to get a job done
- Thumb it: Most legacy ERP apps on Mobile phones are not ‘Designed for Thumb’. With Ramco one can complete transactions by following the thumb's natural, sweeping arc. The app senses context and defaults the most probable transaction and lists down other often used transaction. With Ramco, Just Thumb it to complete transactions on the move
- Prompt it: The best course of action is often decided by past data. One can spend 80% of time pouring over data or can let Ramco ‘Genie’ do it for you. Genie is intelligent to prompt on the next course of action. Be it Procurement or Production or Staffing, it pre-empts the requirement, keeps the documentation ready for approval. As Genie gets used to the user and organization it’ll evolve into a more powerful system that can act on its own to complete transactions that does not require User’s attention. This intelligent aspect of Ramco ERP saves your time to focus more on growing new businesses rather than running the business
