ABB Ventyx

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.

Infor

It is a factory process ERP suitable for flow manufacturing, perhaps the best in its class for functionality and value. Great for medium sized manufacturers.. especially food manufacturers.

Pros

ABB Ventyx

  • Computation of data.
  • Presentation to right person.
  • Ability to perform critical task and sending to users.
  • Multiple control system connectivity.
Read full review

Infor

  • Stability, it reminds of a old COBOL system found in plants. It just runs and never stops.
  • Established, Infor Adage made an A grade platform.
  • Support, even though Infor Adage is not supporting it anymore, other companies are still developing add ons for it.

Cons

ABB Ventyx

  • May be for smaller PLCs this can't be implemented.
  • Cost may an area ABB can look in to.
  • Improvement in GUI
Read full review

Infor

  • Infor has moved onto their new manufacturing package, so they have slowed in their development of Adage, and the user interface is a bit dated, but functional. It could use a technical refresh on the operator screens and access. It is not web based.
  • Integration with EDI is weak. There is poor support for ASNs (Advanced Ship Noticies) and freight management has to be brought in from the outside.
  • Security takes a while to update and administer.

      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.

      Support Rating

      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.

      Alternatives Considered

      ABB Ventyx

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

      Infor

      I was not here for when Adage was introduced but I can say having had experience with Oracle I can say that it can hold its own. When it gets down to, Adage is easier and cheaper to maintain then other ERP's. It can do the same tasks other ERP's can do and does them well.

      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.

      Infor

      • It's scaled well with our company, and we haven't seen the need to switch packages, it works well for us.
      • Our IT staff doesn't spend time fighting application or data failures, it's a clean running package (we have an IT staff of 3).
      • We can get our work done, and it handles business loads well.
