ABB Ability Solution Suite

Of course this is the one of the best solution available in the market at present. When you have Multiple system in a plant then you need a powerful tool for Computation which Ability does it smoothly.

It does work if you have years of experience with it so you know how to make it work. I cannot recommend this software to anyone. I never thought much of it to begin with, but after using it for 10+ years, I have an even lower opinion of it.

One of the best solutions in the market with a user-friendly system. This is very useful when the ABB system (Like we had 800xA) is there, new or existing; all the ABB systems can be integrated using this rather than going to a 3rd party vendor, which may have interface problems.

Good support in terms of quality and promptness. When we had problems with some of the commands not getting executed, their online support also provided a good solution to solve the problem. Even mission-critical task we were able to solve during this Pandemic time. The suggestion is to go for the online support 1st in the future, followed by a visit.

They worked in a similar manner. I was not an admin when I used Oracle though.

Return on Investment

ABB Ability Solution Suite

  • Positive is definitely ROI since manual intervention is minimized and the process is automated.
  • Cost wise, ABB has been looked upon considering the small industry.
  • Overall, a good solution for a large companies.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Aptean Made2Manage ERP

  • The annual cost for support is ridiculous for what you get with this product.
  • The amount of money we have tied up in Made2Manage makes it difficult to cut ties with it and find a better solution. We are basically "held hostage" to our current situation.
