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.

Aptean

Ross ERP was designed for and excels in process manufacturing environments. It is best leveraged in companies with strong management support for technology with a strong understanding of the business and manufacturing processes and a willingness to engage in the design and operation of the system. It is less suited for organizations looking for cut and paste solutions that don't' require input from the users and management. It is whatever you make of it.

Aptean

  • The user interface is under constant improvement, but its a difficult balance between flexibility and ease of use. They have made great strides in recent releases, but have room to grow.
  • Built in reporting and analytics. Again, they are making great improvements over the last several releases, but have room to keep improving.

      Usability

      ABB Ventyx

      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.

      ABB Ventyx

      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.

      Better suited for the ABB System as Microsoft is a third party for ABB Control System.

      Ross by and far has the most features and support for what is out there. Where most ERP systems everything is add ons, Ross builds those for the most part directly into their applications

      Return on Investment

      ABB Ventyx

      • 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.

      Aptean

      • I don't have hard numbers on ROI. For our business, ERP is a requirement, and Ross has excelled at meeting those requirements. We have nearly doubled the business, with perhaps a 20% increase in headcount managing those orders and invoices. We would not have been able to do that without the efficiencies of process we gained with Ross.
