We clocked 76% of the revenue from markets outside India. This has been possible because of our steadfast focus on innovation and culture. The investment in hiring the best talent and giving them a platform to build future technologies has helped carve a niche position for Ramco in the Global IT space. We will continue to invest in these two avenues as they are the pillars on which our success resides.”

Ramco has been investing in transforming the organization to attract and retain the brightest of the talent. This includes, designing workspaces which foster innovation, promoting a flat hierarchy, to focusing on building a healthy work atmosphere from offering subsidized food and snacks to laundry services. Some of the new initiatives launched include offering Cross-fit training to backrub at the desk for employees. The company also initiated an Ideation platform titled – GreyMatters to identify and nurture the big ideas at work.

On the sidelines of announcing the Q3 results, the company announced the roll out of a niche ERP offering for Logistics - Ramco Logistics Software, an integrated Cloud-based platform for Third Party Logistics, Freight Forwarders, and Parcel/ Courier service providers.

Commenting on the Logistics focus, Virender Aggarwal, CEO – Ramco Systems, said, “ERP is a cluttered market with limited room for differentiation. While Cloud and Mobility gave us a lead, we wanted to find a niche and strengthen our portfolio. The growth of e-Commerce and Uberization of the Logistics sector have triggered a renewed interest for innovative technology offerings in the industry. Ramco is well positioned to address this market need with an end-to-end integrated and cloud based ERP for Logistics. We are glad the initial uptake has been promising with key strategic wins in ASEAN, Australia and Middle East.”
