ECi Software Solutions
Well suited for larger companies, and this is only becoming more the case with the new ownership. Smaller companies could at one time buy only the modules they required. This is now not possible, so you end up with a number of modules you do not need. It is best suited for a company needing a full MRP and is going to be overkill for a service based company that does not require inventory management.

It provides a complete real-time solution on the go, if possible. Complete with all the features. I would definitely recommend this
to other businesses to have in their ecosystem for a complete understanding of
cloud-based digitization of business operations. Best choice for transforming the cloud-based organization into digital transformation.

  • The biggest drawback I have been facing while using the platform is that there must be no compromise on security. There is a need for a few changes in security and data control which helps businesses to trust Ramco ERP more.
  • Data migration is a bit of hard work along with the reports that are not giving expected results, which need improvements.

all the features that are needed to be the best. All the processes are very streamlined, easy to
