Allows you to write customer business logic into rules. There is room for improvement of the user interface.

What is most valuable?

Excel upload for all multi-line inputs. This allows users to upload data to any tabular input fields. If the user has to enter expenses (multiple line items), this requires him to manually update multiple fields for a single line item of expense before moving to the next line item. There is a quicker way of doing this. This tool allows him to update all the fields of an expense line item in an Excel sheet. He can add as many such line items as he wants. He can upload this Excel file and voila, all rows get populated on the screen. This is far more convenient than punching each line item on the screen. The provision to write customer business logic into rules.

How has it helped my organization?

The UI has improved a lot. Emphasis is also being given to testing to make sure it’s bug free. There is a product roadmap.

What needs improvement?

User interface Testing the application to ensure that it is bug free Allowing the end user, who has no technical knowhow, to make and run custom reports User Experience: The earlier version of Ramco was not intuitive from a user experience perspective. Ramco has done a lot of work in making the UI more convenient for the user. Testing: Ensuring that the product is bug free. There were so many bugs in the older releases. Product teams are more focused now on testing the product.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for 18 months.

608,713 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There are several stability glitches which one encounters after each upgrade cycle.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

For a multi-country setup, some of the data structures can’t be extended.

How are customer service and support?

Support is improving, but a lot needs to be done.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used SAP. Ramco is lightweight both in terms of cost and functionality compared to SAP.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was straightforward. The trouble starts when a customer intends to customize the solution.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is priced fairly. Instead of negotiating about price, I recommend trying to extract a better SLA for services and a concrete roadmap.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at SAP, Oracle, and other cloud based solutions.

What other advice do I have?

Don’t expect “SAP-like" comprehensive functionality. Ramco delivers value for a simple straight out-of-the-box solution. Don’t customize, or else you will have to pay too much for too little value.

It is a flexible product that you can mold to fit your business needs.

What is most valuable?

It is a complete HCM suite from hire to retire that streamlines business requirements.

It is a very robust system.

It is a flexible product that you can mold to fit your business needs.

Modules include: Core HR, Leave, Time, Recruitment, PMS, Training, Payroll, Travel, etc.

How has it helped my organization?

I am working as an analyst in Ramco HCM implementations. I have worked for quite a few companies in the Indian market and I can say that the product has streamlined the company’s processes to a great extent.

What needs improvement?

It can improve on the Comp Off and On Duty leave management process and can include real time Google Maps instead of geo-tagging to track the real location of employees. Workflow Mailers can be improved as well.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this for two years to date.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The product is very stable if there are no big customizations.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The product can accommodate the requirements of even a very vast and dynamic organization.

How are customer service and technical support?

Ramco has improved technical support a lot. Having said that, they have a technical team in Chennai who receive the bug reports and they deliver the fix within the given TAT.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I haven't had a different solution, but I have had customers like DHFL saying that they replaced Oracle with Ramco HCM because Oracle was not able to cater their customized requirements.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is pretty easy to configure through the front end. Only the customizations are a little complex.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I consider this product in HCM as the best buy as despite the vanilla implementation it also handles customizations at a very reasonable cost.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Frankly, I haven’t worked on any other products apart from Ramco.

What other advice do I have?

I would say, “just go for it”.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: My employer is a partner with Ramco.

With Mail It, we can do our transactions through email-based requests.

What is most valuable?

Ramco HCM has these main features, which they call Mail It, Thumb It, Hub It, and Bot It:

  • Mail It: We can do our transactions through simple email-based requests.
  • Thumb It: HCM Apps that can be completed by following the thumb’s natural, sweeping arc.
  • Hub It: Consolidate multiple screens into one powerful user experience.
  • Bot It: Do your transactions using chat with a bot that is assigned to your company. (Bots.ramco.com)

What needs improvement?

I would like to see the flexibility to create reports suitable to the company because the standard reports from Ramco are so conservative. People usually will do modifications and it takes quite a lot of man-days just to create a report.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used it for around 6-7 months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not yet encountered any stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not yet encountered any scalability issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is 6.5 out of 10.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously were using several different Oracle solutions, and it didn’t work effectively.

How was the initial setup?

If the implementation is without modification for any of the modules, it’s really simple using their QiK tool; the implementation takes around 2-3 months to go live.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

For pricing, they count based on your user admin, ESS (MSS) without payroll, or ESS (MSS) with payroll.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing this product, we did not evaluate other options.

What other advice do I have?

The information about your company data, workflow, all of it must come out with details.
