PORR Group Trusts Ramco HCM for their Middle East Operations




Qatar, Middle East / Chennai, India – March 07, 2018 – Ramco Systems, the global HR and Payroll software provider on Cloud and Mobile, has clinched an order from PORR Qatar Construction W.L.L, part of the European construction major, PORR Group, to implement full suite Ramco HCM Solution for PORR’s GCC operations.

While PORR Group has invested significantly on its existing legacy platform; for its GCC operations they will be implementing Ramco HCM’s complete suite including Core HR, Time & Attendance, Employee Benefits (including Leave), GCC Payroll and Talent Management with seamless integration to the parent system.

PORR has been present in GCC (Qatar) since 2011 and is involved in some of the most important infrastructure projects – including the construction of the Doha Metro and the Al Wakrah Stadium, one of the venues of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, currently under construction.

Marc Krouse, Financial Managing Director, PORR Qatar Construction WLL says, “We have been heavily investing into the GCC market and ramping up our workforce. To streamline and manage this growing workforce, we needed a complete HCM system which was functionally deep, encompassing global best practices while adhering to regional nuances and compliance. We evaluated both existing and multiple global HR solutions, and finalised on Ramco’s comprehensive suite as it scored high on many parameters.”

Tamer Amer, Regional Human Resources Manager – GCC, PORR Qatar Construction, further adds, “It was imperative that we deployed a tool that could be customised with respect to the regional practices and policies, rather than adopting the tedious task of converting international solutions. It was the solution’s complete scalability, multi-control payroll compliance and simplistic UX, that helped Ramco beat the incumbent provider to win the deal.”

Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems, states, “Winning the regional HR mandate of a European major is a testament of the strong footing we have in Middle East as a market. With Innovations as the spear, we have been winning the trust of global MNCs looking at consolidating their Middle East, Asia and Oceania operations on a unified platform.”

“With Bots and Facial recognition based Time Management taking the user to an era of frictionless computing, the HR enterprise software market will see disruptive changes, in the years to come”, added Aggarwal.

Complete with chatbots, simplified User Experience and an intelligent In-memory based engine which identifies and resolves errors, organizations can deploy Ramco HCM on-cloud, on premise or leverage as a managed service. The multi-tenant architecture with embedded intelligence and device agnostics features now serves more than 450 customers worldwide. With innovative concepts of Haptic Design, Context-sensitive Pop-ups, Facial Recognition based Attendance and Chatbots to carry out self-service, Ramco has been setting the benchmark for Innovation in this segment. With statutory compliance across 40+ countries covering ANZ, Asia (including Japan & China), Middle-East, Africa, U.K. and Ireland, Ramco’s Global Payroll is available in English, Japanese, Mandarin, Bahasa, Thai, Malay, Arabic among others.
