Ramco Internet Gateway
Five internet-enabled products are available with Ramco Internet Gateway. These products work under a browser environment. The products’ features include:
WEB/SUPPLIER: Web/Supplier allows vendors to place a quotation directly into the system based on the ‘request for quotation’ reference. The Ramco Purchasing application in Ramco e.Applications then automatically triggers off other processes leading to the creation of a purchase order based on this quotation. The vendor can even track the status of the purchase order at various points to plan delivery schedules.
WEB/CUSTOMER: With Web/Customer, customers can see a company’s product catalog over the internet. The order placed by the customer is then taken up by the Ramco Sales application to trigger off purchase, production and other processes within the enterprise. The customer can check the availability of products and the status of the orders online.
WEB/SELF SERVICE: Claims and leave applications can be made over the internet. Employees situated at different operating locations can now ensure that they are not left out of corporate training programs by accessing the training calendar through the internet. They can request for enrolment to courses and track the status of their request.
WEB/EMPLOYEE: Leave authorization, cancellation and claim approvals can be processed.
WEB/APPLICANT: You can attract a wider choice of new recruits by using Web/Applicant to advertise job openings on the web. Prospective employees can submit their resume online through the ‘resume entry’ menu and track the status of their applications through the web.
