Agharkar Research Institute is a not-for-profit biological research institute. The institute felt the need for a fully integrated ERP/MIS product. They were looking for a platform independ ent, web enabled system that could seamlessly integrate the various processes across different divisions/groups/sections in the government establishment with embedment of Indian Government rules and regulations.

After testing different ERP solutions, they realized that none of them incorporated compliance with Government rules and regulations. Finally, they came across a company called Inkroma, which specializes in GRP (Government Resource Planning) solutions. The software is an ERP solution with out-of-the-box support for Government guidelines.

The system has 122 modules seamlessly integrated with each other. It runs on RedHat ES 4, the database server is Oracle 10g, and WAS NG 6.0 is used as the Web server. The servers used for this system are two Dell Rack Servers with Dual core Dual Processors with 4x143GB SAS Hot Plug Hard Drive.

There are around 100 plus desktops/notebook PCs used by more than 250 users. All the nodes run Windows XP.]
