Frost & Sullivan recently researched the global intelligent buildings industry and, based on its findings, recognizes ABB with the 2023 Global Customer Value Leadership Award. ABB leverages its long-established industry expertise, advanced technologies, and continual innovation to deliver intelligent building and automation solutions that substantially boost the efficiency of today’s buildings while reducing operational costs. The company creates buildings that actively support the global transition to low-carbon energy because they are fitted with leading-edge technologies that enable automatic lighting, air conditioning, heating, and motion detection, among other convenient features.
ABB enables smart buildings that are energy efficient, remotely controllable, open, and suitable for future modifications in line with changing user demands, making ABB’s offering one of the safest bets on the market for investors and potential customers.
In the commercial space, the company offers a vast digital portfolio through ABB Ability™, a cloud-based platform that reduces costs and optimizes productivity, with a rich set of digital tools that seamlessly integrate with existing systems. ABB AbilityTM enables real estate developers, building owners, and investors to future-proof their investments with real-time remote monitoring features, artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, access control, data analytics, security data, and other benefits that ensure increasingly improved operational efficiency.
“The Smart Buildings portfolio, comprising the intuitive and user-friendly ABB Ability™ cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions, reduces the complexity and cost associated with intelligent buildings solution implementation, thereby driving adoption across diverse building segments. Furthermore, these solutions help real-world customers make buildings safer, smarter, and more sustainable by supporting their end-to-end sustainability journeys,”Anirudh Bhaskaran, Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst
Unlike competitors, ABB develops its sophisticated solutions by collaborating closely with various stakeholders across the value chain to evolve along with market trends and to meet customers’ ever-changing needs. For this reason, the company carefully listens to its customers and adjusts its market strategy to solve problems early in the solution development process.
Furthermore, the company has an outstanding customer satisfaction rate, which enables it to gain new customers through word-of-mouth accolades and industry recognition. As a result, ABB significantly increases its customer base each year, outperforming its closest competitors.
