With Ramco HCM, Sharaf DG manages the employee lifecycle, right from hire to retire

Sharaf DG, one of the leading powerhouse retailers in the Middle East, today announced that it has gone live with Ramco Systems’ Human Capital Management (HCM) software to automate and integrate its HR operations.

Sharaf DG, part of Sharaf Group – one of UAE's largest and most respected business conglomerates – is a one stop electronics destination for all the electronic needs. With Ramco’s HCM solution, Sharaf DG will now cover aspects of its employee lifecycle right from Time Management, Leave Management, Loan Management, Performance Management, to Payroll, and Employee Self Services.

Mr. Nilesh Khalkho, CEO, Sharaf DG, said, “While managing workforce is a people-centric function, there’s definitely a need to adopt the right technology to maintain efficiencies and adhere to regulations. Ramco’s HCM solution has helped us streamline all our HR functionalities. With Ramco HR & Payroll, we’ve now automated our manual processes like Timesheets, Payroll Processing and Appraisals. The solution has reduced the payroll processing time, resulting in an increase in the payroll cut-off dates and has also helped us keep the retrospective corrections at bay.”

Commenting on the go-live, Mr. Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems, said, “Ramco HCM has been witnessing significant traction, across the globe and in Middle East in particular. The simplicity of use, power of mobility and ability to address local statutory needs across GCC has helped us create a unique value proposition in the region. The quick and successful implementation of Ramco HCM at Sharaf DG across the region underscores the robustness in our processes.”

Middle East and Africa is the third largest market for Ramco, after India and US contributing 23% to the overall revenue (FY 2013-14). Ramco in Middle East counts leading names such as Kerzner International, Emirates, Group4Securitas, RedTag, Khimji Ramdas, Rakbank among others as clients.

Since the global launch of its cloud based HR software, Ramco has added on an average one customer a week including leading Fortune 100 and multinational brands across the globe.
