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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Infor M3

Since it also allows us to expand the functionality without the Modifications, the necessity to exchange the code is mostly not needed. Despite this, sometimes we are not provided with alternatives. So it is highly appreciated that this option still [exists] though. The M3 Products are mostly very intuitive once you start using them more frequently.

Pros

ABB Ability Solution Suite

  • Computation of data.
  • Presentation to right person.
  • Ability to perform critical task and sending to users.
  • Multiple control system connectivity.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Infor M3

  • Very stable product. Some of its weaknesses are also its strengths. The lack of web services seems to actually increase stability.
  • No software vendor in this space is perfect. Lawson does perform as advertised.
  • Again, a weakness of this (limited functionality) is a hidden strength as well. In software there is a complexity/feature tradeoff. Where Lawson lacks in features, it does give you a more simple setup for your organization.

Cons

ABB Ability Solution Suite

  • May be for smaller PLCs this can't be implemented.
  • Cost may an area ABB can look in to.
  • Improvement in GUI
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Infor M3

  • Not intuitive at all, difficult to learn.
  • System is archaic, seems to be largely unchanged since the early 2000's.
  • Reports are all in PDF form, which for financial reporting purposes is tedious to turn back into Excel sheets.

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 meets most of the reporting requirements and ability to use the system easily. We like the simple interfaces for the users and ability to perform mass journal entry uploads. The Master data is easy to consume by users, including Chart of Accounts structure, Accounting Units, Cost Centers. The Activity based reporting feature is useful.

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.

The overall support of Inform M3 is simply the best! There isn't a single flaw that I can detect or think of about this software! I can't possibly express the greatness of the availability and all of the possibilities achieved. The ease of use and a lot of functionalities such as flexibility [allows in] configuration to add new functionalities fast.

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

Lawson is comparable to the other ERP's I have used. Similar functionality and interface. Usability is comparable.

Return on Investment

ABB Ability Solution Suite

  • 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.

  • I wish Infor M3 (formerly Lawson Intentia) were more detailed. But, this actually may be a weakness of my employer and not Infor M3 (formerly Lawson Intentia).
