As we are using Fresa gold for more than 5 years, the support team is very good with proactive responses. As Fresa Team is also from freight forwarding industry, most of the solutions are already available in the software. Fresa blog has answers for most of the questions. All the doubts are cleared then and there because they are arranging daily training sessions (5pm IST).

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.

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

As we are in freight forward and shipping solutions, we want to maintain everything in one platform from quote to invoice collection. Fresa Gold is specifically made for freight forwarders in mind. To avoid duplicate data entry, errors on invoices, we want to use one system for all the departments, which is available only in Fresa gold based on my experience.
