RamBase earns honorable mention in 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant

For the second year in a row RamBase Cloud ERP has been recognized by Gartner®, one of the world’s leading research and advisory companies, as an honorable mention in their 2021 Magic Quadrant for Product-Centric Enterprises. 

Last year's recognition for RamBase by Gartner® as a contender among the big ERP brands, was a pat on the back for all the hard work and proof for us that we are moving in the right direction. One year on, and with a global pandemic that has haltered the focus for nearly all industry leaders spending on digital transformations, RamBase has continued to develop and grow. During this period, RamBase has delivered smart, new industry solutions, extended the RamBase partner network, and signed contracts with more customers against several of the major ERP giants that dominate the Magic Quadrant.


Delivering on product capabilities

Gartner said the following about RamBase in their Magic Quadrant article: 

Hatteland is a Europe-based company specializing in manufacturing ERP in the cloud. The size of its customer base for the RamBase Cloud ERP solution did not meet the inclusion criteria for this Magic Quadrant.

RamBase did not meet the market presence requirement, but for potential customers, that's not the most important factor.  What is more important is the product capabilities, and RamBase meets this requirement with a complete business solution with rich industry features.  The cloud solution includes functionality for supply chain management, demand management, order management, material requirements planning, inventory management, procurement, manufacturing control capabilities, distribution, logistic and of course RamBase has an extensive financial management solution.

How is RamBase different?
In competition with ERP giants such as Microsoft and SAP, RamBase is often considered the wild card. This means we have to work smarter, faster, and better to gain customers' considerations and approval. Our approach is to be transparent for example when it comes to pricing. With RamBase you only pay for the users that use the system, and you control the user count. If you had to lay off employees due to the pandemic this year, you had the ability to pause their monthly access to the system, saving you money when the time called for it.
Another way RamBase sets itself apart from the big corporate players in the market is with a faster implementation process since the system is built up of standard, core ERP processes. Together with partners that have a key understanding of the industry our customers operate in, RamBase aims to deliver implementation projects that suit each customer's needs and timeframe. Learn how high-tech manufacturing company Norxe needed to get up and running fast with RamBase. 
And being a smaller company,  we dare to say together with our partner network we have a friendlier way of collaborating with our customers. One of the latest implementation projects for RamBase, CTO Rolf Thu of machining company Aarbakke said the following about working with RamBase: 
“(...) we find it very valuable that we have more of a partnership rather than a customer/supplier relationship with RamBase. And with a solid partnership with Mazeppa Consulting as well, we have all that we need to reach our target, and we are well aligned for success.” 

Signing a contract with RamBase means the beginning of a valuable partnership for both parties. We appreciate our customer's insights and use their knowledge and system requirements actively to develop the RamBase system for all our users. That's one of the great things about having an ERP system with industry fit, the needs of other RamBase customers will be a contribution for all, with no extra cost to our users.   


Helping customers choose the right industry-fit ERP solution. 

Gartner's recognition of RamBase as a contender in the cloud ERP market for product-centric organizations means our solution meets the product capabilities needed for this segment. Product-centric organizations physically manufacture, sell and/or distribute products. Relevant capabilities for this segment to be considered included in the magic quadrant are features such as supply chain management, manufacturing-related functionality, and financial management. The magic quadrant is therefore an excellent third-party evaluation tool for consumers looking for a best-of-breed solution for their specific industry requirements. 

But Gartner's is not the only seal of approval that potential customers can use in their evaluation of RamBase as a suitable contender.  RamBase has a proven track record with customers within several industry sectors. Our solution has smart industry features for industries such as industrial electronics, oil & gas, industrial machinery and equipment, maritime sector,  automotive, industrial distribution, OEM, EMS and navigation devices to name a few.
