MDT Software is a CAPP partner with Schneider and also Aveva/ Wonderware.

I can't offer any specific customer testimonials but MDT Software is used on many sites in New Zealand (CPG & MMM) to manage Unity, Wonderware and also Rockwell and iFix applications.

- Rio Tinto NZAS site Invercargill

- Synlait Dairy Dunsandel

- Fonterra Clandeboye

and many more.

On most of these sites, the user has to log in through MDT to access the application.

MDT manages access authorisation and also provides reports on what was changed (down to script level in SCADA applications.

In the case of Unity PLC's, it can schedule backups/ uploads of applications and data.

Can assist with 21CFR compliance.
