by Sohini Bagchi    Jun 28, 2006

Amrutanjan Limited has announced to deploy Ramco Systems’ ERP suite of applications to streamline its operations by integrating its factories in Hyderabad and Chennai with the branch offices and C&F agents

Chetan Pathak, VP - Enterprise Solutions, Ramco informed that Amrutanjan has implemented e.Applications- v3.1, which includes financials, logistics, sales, production, quality, tools and utilities.

With a range of products and branch offices across the country, the 80-crore health care product major was facing challenges in streamlining manual and automated processes, consolidation of data and timely generation of MIS reports. The implementation will help Amrutanjan with all these and more.

Sambhu Prasad, MD, Amrutanjan Limited discussed the challenges faced by the company, “The various systems were developed in-house over a period of time. Oracle and D2K was the environment used for developing some of the applications like finance, production, sales, purchase and inventory. However, these systems were not integrated creating a lot of business complexities. Updating data was another frequent problem ”

Amrutanjan considered SAP and another open source solution before zeroing in on Ramco. And Ramco’s ability to meet unique requirements and rich domain experience are factors that helped the decision.

“We also export our health care products in the global market such as Middle East, West Africa, South Asia, Asia Pacific and Europe and are soon planning to enter the US market, so we were looking for a vendor and implementation partner with a global repute and an impressive post-implementation track record,” said Prasad.

According to Pathak, “In order to compete and grow, businesses today need a powerful enterprise wide information solution that is proven, economical and incorporates best practices to support your business. Ramco e.Applications is a comprehensive, ERP product that has been designed to address the current and future needs of Amrutanjan and propel their growth, with affordable investment.”

With a turnover of $59.24 million, e.Applications runs at over 1000 customer locations and delivers solutions that are easy to implement, use, adapt and maintain. Pathak informed that the extension development kits would further allow them to modify or add to the business functionality in Ramco applications without affecting the source code.

The implementation is currently in progress and it would take another 5 months to go live.
