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.

I have only used Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine) in my current role so I do not have specific scenarios other than, status/pay rate changes are not date effective so I have to make sure and enter any changes to the employees on the day the change is to occur. It would be better if I could enter changes as I receive them and code those changes to an effective date that can be referenced and pulled for reporting purposes.

Strong technology stack that gives it long term strengths. Syteline is very scaleable, highly extensible and expandable. Work flow processing (ION) is strong and useful for increasing system feedback to user and decreasing repetitive tasks. Automated report generation is powerful. User interface is clean and very accessible. Broad functionality to meet a wide range of demanding environments. This is a solution you can use long term and not outgrow.

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.

It's an easy enough software to use and it allows for light to heavy customization for the products you are trying to get out of it. We are a heavy user of it, but it would work just as well in a simpler implementation where it would be easy to maintain.

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.

Concierge is difficult to use but if you email support they are quick to respond.

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

Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine) is equivalent to ADP, as the system is old style with poor navigation to where you need to go. But just like ADP is effective at the data management they have to handle. Paylocity is more user friendly and easy navigation but has quirks and runs into coding issues alot.
