“Ramco’s ability to offer one integrated suite covering ERP, Finance, HR, and Asset Management all on the same platform coupled with capability to bring latest technology features such as Artificial Intelligence, Chatbots, Mobility and much more has been a key differentiator driving large conglomerates to embark on a digital transformation program,” added Aggarwal.
