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.

Unless you want to use every aspect of DDI for your company, I would not recommend their program. We have been unable to integrate their system with outside systems and even our website without having to pay for a "work around". If you do consider using other aspects of their offerings, make sure to get a trial of things like their CRM capabilities, as I have found them to be quite outdated in comparison to other programs

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.
