Cloud ERP Implementations: One Year Later

Manufacturing Insights Blog

By Chris Bishop, Vice President of Global Services and Support, Plex Systems

As you plan ahead for your manufacturing company in 2013, take a long, hard look at your systems. Traditional enterprise systems often take many months, or years, before they’re fully implemented – then more months and years before they make any real impact on overall business performance. But Plex cloud ERP customers see results quickly. Here’s what I’ve heard from users across several different manufacturing industries:

Cost Savings

Speedy Return on Investment

Time Savings

  • Weber Metals saved time across many of its processes. For example, the aerospace supplier reduced quote entry time by 80 percent and replaced 40 man-hours per week of complex job and material optimization calculations with an automated process.
  • ARCA, an electronics/high-tech manufacturer, leveraged the efficiencies it gained with Plex to double its production volume without adding any additional staff.

Inventory Improvements

Surpassing Performance Indices

Don’t Wait

With the fast pace of today’s manufacturing, a year can seem like an eternity. Companies still trying to get their ERP systems to work several months after launch are facing an uphill battle. Don’t waste your valuable time and resources just trying to get a cumbersome system to work. Check out how Plex cloud ERP launches smoothly and delivers measurable business improvements faster.
