- Talent Tagging: Helps Managers/ HR to tag each employee against skill sets, inclinations and other softer aspects which then becomes the base on which teams can be assembled for specific projects/ task
- Quick Self-Service: Card-based dashboard with Ultra-thin forms to perform ESS activities from any device

Commenting on the launch, Mr. Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems, said, “We have seen very good traction for our HR offering in the Eastern markets in the last 2 years. During this phase, we have been working on adding specific innovations to ready the offering for a global play. While there are mature players already in the fray in the US, we hope to create a disruptive ripple with our focus on simplification and a comprehensive single fabric offering which is built on the same code base. Our focus is to tap into the mid-market which today has very few full-suite HR products to choose from. In short, with a complete, yet refreshingly simple offering, Ramco HCM is all set for its US foray.”
Ramco Systems was cited as a “Sample Vendor” for HRMS via SaaS and Mobile HCM in Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Human Capital Management Software, 2015.
Mr. Ron Hanscome, Research VP, Gartner Inc., adds “We continue to see a growing number of organizations of all sizes switch to cloud-based HCM offerings versus choosing to continue to invest in their existing on-premises applications. We have seen an increase in Gartner inquiries from customers who seek a more integrated approach, especially around the talent suite, and we are beginning to see a growing number of organizations that are evaluating a more unified core HRMS and talent strategy”.
Ramco HCM has been lauded by customers and industry experts for its ‘Cool’, user-defined interface and its ability to automate and aid in making smart decisions. The HCM offering is led by a Global Payroll solution, which adds to the strength of Ramco’s innovative offerings in the disruptive era.
