Integrated Google Maps Engine to bring location-awareness and visualization capabilities to Ramco's Cloud ERP
Following the recent launch of its ERP suite on Cloud, mobile and tablets, Ramco Systems has now added location-aware and visualization capabilities with Google Maps to its base product. The company has partnered with Google's enterprise team to integrate Google Maps with Ramco ERP on Cloud. The integration is intended to allow customers to be able to get a real-time view of their business, anytime, anywhere.
Commenting on the partnership with Google, Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems, said, "We are glad to partner with one of the most innovative technology companies in the world. This partnership gives an opportunity for every CXO to zoom into the ground level realities of his business. ERP data fed into a powerful maps engine is a perfect example of a 'Connected Enterprise' run efficiently."
Speaking on the power of geospatial technology for businesses, Ricky Kapur, Google Asia Enterprise Sales Director, said, "Geo is a blazing hot sector within the information economy, and as it continues to grow, we're looking forward to working with Ramco to help many more Indian businesses visualize their geospatial data in entirely new ways so they can be more efficient and competitive."
Google Maps Engine is a scalable, powerful and secure platform for building and publishing maps, using the power of the Google cloud.
As a pilot, Ramco had recently integrated Google Maps with the ERP at Madras Cements to streamline data presentation, and to increase efficiency and utilization of resources. The project resulted in improved planning, monitoring of operations and better utilization of assets.
"As the CEO of a multi-million dollar company that deals with perishable goods, 'real-time information' was always critical. MCL's complex business environment-multi-location, multi-plant operations, linked with an extensive sales & distribution network just made the need even more critical. As most of our workforce is mobile, information needed to percolate across the system and be available to employees on the move. We needed a system which would not just capture transactional data but give us insights that could change the dynamics of business. Ramco's ERP on mobile devices with integrated Google Maps has helped us leverage the true power of technology to plan, perform, monitor and analyze our efficiencies and asset utilization, said A. V. Dharmakrishnan, CEO, Madras Cements.
