Dubai, UAE/ Chennai, India – February 24, 2015 – Sharaf DG, one of the leading powerhouse retailers in the Middle East, today announced that it has gone live with Ramco Systems’ Human Capital Management (HCM) software to automate and integrate its HR operations.

Sharaf DG, part of Sharaf Group – one of UAE's largest and most respected business conglomerates, is a one stop electronics destination for all the electronic needs. With Ramco’s HCM solution, Sharaf DG will now cover aspects of its employee lifecycle right from Time Management, Leave Management, Loan Management, Performance Management, to Payroll, and Employee Self Services.

Mr. Nilesh Khalkho, CEO, Sharaf DG, said, “While managing workforce is a people-centric function, there’s definitely a need to adopt the right technology to maintain efficiencies and adhere to regulations. Ramco’s HCM solution has helped us streamline all our HR functionalities. With Ramco HR & Payroll, we’ve now automated our manual processes like Timesheets, Payroll Processing and Appraisals.
