Plex Systems: Mission To Transform Under-Performing ERP To Manufacturing-Ready ERP

Jason Blessing, CEO
The founders of Plex Systems started out as people who loved manufacturing and took pride in the making of things. These same people then applied their knowledge of engineering and software development to create native cloud manufacturing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) built from the plant floor up instead of from the accounting department down.

More than 350 companies run their manufacturing operations on the Plex Manufacturing Cloud. From cam shafts to craft beers, from high-performance diesel engines to aircraft parts, the Plex Manufacturing Cloud helps companies automate the shop floor and inform the top floor. The company designed its ERP solutions in order to connect suppliers, manage materials, control machines and deliver the accounting and business intelligence manufacturing organizations need. The Plex Manufacturing Cloud ushers in a new era of ERP with a complete system designed to power today’s modern manufacturer. It enables forward-thinking businesses to increase throughput with existing facilities, squeeze more profits from every order, understand where they are most exposed to risk, respond to customer demand, and keep up with the speed and volume of data on today’s plant floor.

With the Plex Manufacturing Cloud, implementations move from months to weeks, customers only pay for what they need, and the focus is on configuration, not customization. Powered by industrial strength data centers and security, the Plex Manufacturing Cloud fundamentally lowers the cost structure of IT. The solution enables customers to have complete visibility into their operations and plant data, and leverage those details to drive profits. “Even though the schedule was tough, with the Plex Manufacturing Cloud, we were able to ship about 35 percent of our scheduled orders on the first day and continued to improve our performance to schedule every day.
Our new owners had experienced many ERP implementations with results ranging from disastrous one-week shutdowns to successful “non-events” with virtually no disruption to operations. We were pleased to have an ERP launch with minimal production issues,” says Linda Kelleher, CFO of Cast Aluminum Solutions, on her experience working with Plex.

The company also provides software mainly categorized into ERP, manufacturing executions program, business intelligence, quality management system, supply chain management and Customer Relationship Management (CRM). In addition, it provides services including customer care, technology services, education services, and a number of professional services.
