After cataloguing its entry (as the only APAC vendor) into Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Core Financial Suites(*) & Cloud HCM Suites, the enterprise software company, Ramco Systems, announced that Gartner has positioned Ramco in the ‘Niche Quadrant’ of its 2017 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Asset Management Software, (by Kristian Steenstrup, Nicole Foust, Published Date: on 09 November 2017).
According to Gartner, an EAM solution includes functionality for managing, planning and scheduling; work order creation; maintenance history; and inventory and procurement; as well as equipment, component and asset tracking for assemblies of equipment. In some instances, the functionality is extended by the addition of basic financial management modules such as accounts payable, cost recording in ledgers and HR functions such as maintenance skills databases. The report focuses on evaluating vendors for their capability to address asset-intensive industry particularly manufacturing, natural resources, transportation and utilities.
Speaking on this, Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems, said, “No two asset organizations are similar and force fitting a generic EAM into any asset-centric organization is passé. At Ramco, we focus on building specialized EAM offerings for complex asset-intensive industries such as Aviation MRO, Fleet & Equipment Rental, Power and Manufacturing industries. Ramco’s entry into the Magic Quadrant as a Niche Vendor is the result of this heightened specialization, strong focus on Innovation and a persistent effort to build a simplified user experience. With this entry, three of our five product suites are in the Gartner Magic Quadrant – a feat we can be proud of.”
