HERE Technologies, a leading provider of mapping and location platform services, has partnered Ramco Systems, a global cloud enterprise software provider, to embed location intelligence in their logistics ERP platform.
Ramco Logistics Software is an integrated and smart platform engineered to provide an end-to-end comprehensive business solution for 3PLs, contract logistics, freight forwarders, project cargo, reefer logistics, e-commerce logistics and parcel/express service providers. By embedding geo-visualisation layers provided by HERE, Ramco’s clients will benefit from real-time viewing of their logistics operations using HERE Maps.
In addition, Ramco will use HERE’s routing APIs to compute accurate ETAs (expected time of arrival) based on historic and real-time traffic conditions, movement of hazmat materials as well as truck attributes, which will further improve customer satisfaction. HERE will also provide advanced algorithms around dynamic re-routing to allow for updates to routes based on changes in traffic, weather, tour or new orders. Ramco will integrate the HERE SDK to support turn-by-turn navigation on mobile devices, driver behaviour analysis and allow drivers to safely stay focused on the road and traffic conditions ahead.
Commenting on the partnership, Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems said, “Being able to get a visual dashboard of logistics operations on maps in real-time will immensely benefit logistics service providers in planning, executing, and delivering customer delight. We are happy to partner with HERE to offer geo-visualisation as part of our comprehensive Logistics ERP suite – thus ensuring a truly connected digital enterprise,”
Stanmira Koleva, SVP and general manager APAC, HERE Technologies said: “This technology partnership with Ramco will bring new innovations in the movement of goods and provide insights to their customers within their integrated suite. We are really excited to be able to help support their innovations that will empower both their customers and drivers with real-time feedback such as alerts and traffic conditions and ensure real-time movement of assets. With our complementary strengths in logistics management and location technology, this partnership is a great testament of how location can support our vision of safe and productive logistics services.”
Aditya Waghray, senior strategic partner manager, HERE Technologies, the joint value proposition to logistics clients ranges from accurate trip planning at the start of the trip to actual trip execution looking at toll costs, fuel consumption, dispatch efficiency and route optimisation to post trip analysis around driver performance, fleet utilisation and overall cost management.
