Ramco Systems has rolled out the SMS based Employee Self Service (ESS) after the success of NFC and GPS based Attendance Management System. This new offering of the company will enable the ESS users of Ramco HCM to ask for leaves, raise queries and perform transactions all through simple text messaging.
Speaking about the launch, Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems, said, “With Ramco’s Mobility solutions, our clients have leveraged the benefits of accessing Ramco HCM on their smartphones. We found a sizeable section of the ESS users not leveraging the mobile application as it necessitated internet access on phones. In order to simplify the user experience and to truly take the mobile experience to every user, we have launched a short-code based ESS feature. With mobile redefining the way we interact, we are confident this new feature will find good adoption from both existing and new customers. This, in short, is the first step towards building ‘inclusive’ enterprise software.”
The objective of the company behind this SMS based feature is to address the requirements of organizations with heavily distributed workforce or highly secure workplaces (like BPO, Factories, R&D units) which restrict use of smart phones within office premises.
