Ramco ERP on Cloud adds spatial capability with Google Maps

Integrates Google Maps Engine to bring location-awareness and visualization capabilities into its Cloud ERP

Chennai, India – January 31, 2013 – After announcing the global availability of Ramco ERP on Cloud, Mobile and Tablets, Ramco Systems today added yet another feature to its base product—Location-aware and Visualization capabilities with Google Maps. Ramco Systems has partnered with Google's Enterprise team to integrate Google Maps with Ramco ERP on Cloud. With this integration, customers will be able to get a real-time view of their business, anytime, anywhere.

Ramco Systems also presented a Case study on Madras Cements, the fifth largest cement producer in India and a pioneer in cement technology. Ramco Systems had integrated Google Maps with the company's ERP to streamline data presentation, and to improve efficiency and utilization of resources.

Sharing his views, Mr. A. V. Dharmakrishnan, CEO, Madras Cements said, "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."

Speaking on partnering with Google, Mr. 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, Mr. 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.
