Overall Satisfaction with ThingWorx

ThingWorx is a solution-focused on IIoT, helping companies transition into the digital world. Through Thingworx and its modules, we can connect live data on the plant floor to the platform on the cloud, monitoring assets' health and its functioning. All through secure protocols that are always updated. We use it to deploy such solutions in the most varied types of customers, from pulp & paper, consumer goods, heavy industry, and whatever industry you can think of. It's mainly focused on monitoring asset health, optimizing processes through the analytics extension, and providing plant-level alerts for faster decision-making.
  • Asset Monitoring - quick and easy to deploy, can connect to the plant floor and get real-time data from devices.
  • Analytics - The TWX Analytics extension has a variety of analyses that can be done into any data source input into TWX.
  • Alerts notification - you can program alerts to be sent via email/SMS seamlessly.
  • UI creation - some features that one is accustomed to using reporting services are not allowed in TWX, such as within a table, directly use aggregate functions such as count, max, min, etc. You need to create specific services in order to accomplish that
  • Even when working with a SQL data source, you cannot easily create a PK that auto increments, you need to create a service to that for you, and is not that simple.
  • Seamless connection to the plant floor through OPCServer called Kepware.
  • TWX analytics can help in process improvement and help customers understand the barriers their processes face.
  • Integration with Vuforia allows it to create a repository for augmented reality solutions.
  • Integration with SSO can make it easier for companies to adopt the solution, diminishing the number of times a user needs to log on.
  • ThingWorx drastically increased our volume of projects in digital solutions, before TWX we used to work on 1/2 projects a year. Now we have around 10 projects running at the same time, that only in my region.
  • For customers I noticed an increase in satisfaction when talking about an MES system, TWX does a great job in being a one-stop-shop for all things MES.

Would you buy ThingWorx again?


ThingWorx is great if you want to create an MES-like solution for your company, but have data coming not only from the plant floor, but also from databases, azure, and others. You can seamlessly integrate those data and create reports like visuals and mashups. It is also a great solution if you have multiple plants and need to monitor everyone simultaneously and even compare results between locations. ThingWorx is not recommended if all you need is a BI solution, it is not a reporting software and it should not be used as it.
