Currently, many government and commercial organizations recognize procurement as one of the means of cost reduction. The increasing need for innovative procurement solutions is leading companies to embrace technologies like web services and digitalization. “The technological shift provides more business opportunities, introduces new suppliers, and enables better compliance in the procurement space, while minimizing risk and human errors,” states Brian Mozhdehi, CEO, Ramp Systems. These advancements not only help increase the performance of the buyer’s organization, but also that of suppliers’— helping improve the buyer-supplier relationship, collaboration, and innovation. Even though there have been developments in the procurement arena, many a times, the teams fail to deliver efficient strategies. With customers increasingly demanding fast, robust, and real-time solutions, Ramp Systems offer a comprehensive Third Party Logistics (3PL) integration software and Warehouse Management (WMS) solution to enterprises.
The firm’s Enterprise WMS is a flexible solution that can be deployed in the cloud and on site. It tracks the configurable ID codes of goods in pallet and unit level, and stores the information to create reports, which can be internalized, tracked, and used for later assessments to lower the inventory costs. “In addition, there is a management portal that is instrumental to track costs, inventory turnovers, configure representational layer of data and other metrics to optimize logistics operations,” states Mozhdehi. The WMS software is portable and works on any platform, including mobile devices and Radio Frequency (RF) guns.
“We offer out-of-the-box cost reduction capabilities for our clients in the procurement space by providing free software updates,” states Mozhdehi.

The partnership development program of Ramp Systems enables customers to contribute ideas and request for product enhancements. “Customer feedbacks contribute significantly to our Research and Development (R&D),” comments Mozhdehi. End-user requested features are designed in a community-based model and implemented free of cost.
The company also has a complete, highly configurable integration software product that enables Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between systems to meet business integration requirements at a low cost. The software is compatible with new technologies like Applicability Statement 2 (AS2) as well as legacy systems like Value Added Network (VAN) based EDI or protocols like FTP and HTTP. Besides, it also supports nearly every commonly used document formats like EDI, XML, Jason, and Flat Files spreadsheets that can communicate internally with many applications to translate data and meet business requirements.
In one instance, Ramp Systems helped a client in the logistics domain by delivering a tailor-made WMS solution that allowed them to have customizable online stores for Business to Consumer (B2C) fulfillment and interfaced in real-time with WMS. The software had inventory capabilities as well as the ability to process consumer orders. With Ramp Systems’ solution, the client could address the challenges of a vast range of customers and without requiring custom coding or any other system modification. “This saved a lot of time and cost, and increased business value for the client,” adds Mozhdehi.
Moving ahead, Ramp Systems will enhance and incorporate more features and functionality to their WMS and Interchange EDI solutions. “As time progresses, we will continue to provide comprehensive solutions and reduce operational costs in the procurement space, offer more capabilities, and better cater to the needs of our customers,” concludes Mozhdehi.
