The announcement was made during the launch of Ramco’s new office in Melbourne which will also double up to become the Oceania Headquarters for the company.

Ramco in Australia has seen a record growth in business since its entry in 2012. As the fastest growing market, Australia contributed 11% to the overall revenue in FY 2016. The strategic thrust placed in targeting two key offerings – Global Payroll and Logistics as an Industry vertical – has helped the region yield good results.

We have been able to win the trust of some of the largest conglomerates and business houses and are thrilled by the progress made. This new office in Melbourne will also become the Oceania headquarters for Ramco.”

Ramco intends to work with the Government aimed at transforming Victoria into a pivotal business destination in the Asia Pacific.

Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade, Philip Dalidakis, said "Ramco's decision to base their Oceania HQ in Melbourne strengthens Victoria’s growing reputation as a leading destination for global business and tech investment.”

"The Andrews Labor Government is bolstering Victoria’s push to be the number one tech destination across the Asia Pacific and Ramco's innovation and logistics presence in Melbourne will help us do this.”

Announcing the win, Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems said, “We entered Australia at an opportune time when businesses in the region were looking for alternate options to help them embrace the digital transformation wave. Our thrust on Innovation and bringing simplicity into enterprise applications has been a key value differentiator. Within three years of setting up Australia operations, Ramco Systems has seen business from the region grow multi-fold. The win at SeaRoad positions Ramco as a dominant player in the Logistics domain. While there are multiple point solutions for addressing Warehouse, Transportation or Fleet; our integrated approach to Logistics business has been well-received by customers.”
