Why should an investor buy your company's stock?

Ramco Systems is a company whose intrinsic value is very high. This is because we have spent several years of our time and efforts to develop globally competitive products. Every product line we have is well-researched and created for a global market. Our products are all long-standing, and will continue to give users the definitive edge they need in today’s business scenario. There is a difference between growth at our company and that of service companies. A company like ours grows non-linearly, without having to substantially increase manpower, while service companies grow linearly, in proportion to people strength.

What events do you expect in your industry sector over the next few months? Are these hurdles or catalysts?

We are in an uncertain market today where ups and downs have become the norm. In an environment where change occurs more often than required, we definitely expect hurdles as well as catalysts. But for a company like Ramco Systems, which has the best minds working diligently round the clock, every hurdle is a catalyst for growth. It gives us an opportunity to innovate and provide utmost value to our customer. We think of hurdles also as catalysts.

What growth initiatives has your company planned?

The company has planned growth initiatives for every product line. Last year, as you are aware, was pretty bad for most companies due to the recession. We had to reengineer our concepts and strategies to stay steadfast in such a taut environment. It is this persistence of ours that brought about several innovations in our products, like our MRO and M&E software. These innovations have helped us in positioning our Aviation suite of offerings as the ideal fit. Such innovation has given us more traction in the market, and we expect to grow exponentially.

One other sector which has thrown in tremendous opportunities for us is cloud-based ERP. We plan to tap into unexplored/ underexplored markets with our cloud offerings for future growth.

The third growth area is analytics. In analytics, we enable organisations to move their decision-making process from transaction / reaction-based to analytical/ reasoning-based. We are seeing good interest and traction from financial institutions and banks to adopt our solutions.

Who is your competition? What differentiates you from them?

We have different competitors for each of our product lines. However, the factors that differentiate us from the competition include the value proposition we offer, the completeness of our products, and our overall service standards.

How do you see your company performing over the next financial year?

We foresee strong growth throughout the next financial year. This is because we strongly believe that we now have solutions that can revolutionize the way companies do business all over the world. With better marketing strategies, we are experiencing better traction in markets all around the world. The pace of our growth is also quite exhilarating, because our products have greater advantages than any other software in the market.
