Meeting Automotive Industry Challenges 

Automotive businesses struggle to meet the needs of a demanding market. Increasingly complex requirements from your customers make it difficult to concentrate on reducing inventory, eliminating scrap and waste, and dealing with volatile commodity costs, all with a workforce that’s dramatically smaller than it was just a few years ago.

Features & Benefits of Automotive Software

With Plex ERP software, capture and access all production and quality data at the “manufacturing moment” to gain the real-time intelligence required to make timely and effective automotive manufacturing decisions. The built-in Manufacturing Execution System (MES) monitors and maintains inventory, production and quality information in real-time to improve responsiveness, drive shorter cycle times and reduce the risk of warranty issues or recalls.

Manage Quality with Automotive Software

Real-time quality monitoring should be an integral part of your MES. Pinpoint and isolate your problems immediately with Plex to isolate and contain an issue and minimize its impact on overall product cost. 

Built-in integration

  • Eliminate duplicate data entry and expensive integrations between systems. 
  • The Plex Manufacturing Cloud has it all in one place, from shop floor MES, to built-in customer labeling and EDI. 

The Entire Plant at Your Fingertips

  • Connect the shop floor with the top floor for actionable information to understand costs, optimize schedules, eliminate waste and keep up with the pace of your business.
  • Respond to increasing price pressure from customers with real-time business information that exposes efficiency opportunities you may not otherwise have seen.

The Plex Manufacturing Cloud was built on the shop floor and expanded up to the top floor, driven by the vision that better automotive manufacturing requires a focus on accurate, real-time inventory and traceability, not just better accounting for debits and credits. Plex delivers a lower total cost of ownership for automotive suppliers without expensive IT investments, additional licenses or regular upgrades to install. And with Plex, you enjoy faster time-to-value with the continuous innovation of daily enhancements.

Plex is Built for Manufacturers

Manufacturing ERP software is not all the same. Historical ERP software solutions involve painful implementation projects followed by challenging periodic updates – often forcing companies to go years without updating their ERP system. Meanwhile, these same companies lose value day after day as new features and functions elude them, only implemented with the next painful ‘big bang’ upgrade.

Modern manufacturing ERP software from Plex takes a different approach. No more waiting. No more upgrades. New features are added daily to a single line of code, shared instantly with all Plex customers. Those customers not only realize renewed value daily, but share best practices real time with other peer Plex customers, all of which have access to exactly the same features, functions and capabilities enabled by a true, single ERP software code SaaS cloud offering.

ERP software solutions should truly be just that; solutions. Manufacturers are often tempted by ERP software vendors touting strong financial, accounting, and even retail ERP software solutions and systems. None of these, however, do the one thing they need particularly well – manufacturing.

Plex is different, offering the only ERP software solution built from the ground up in the cloud and focused exclusively on manufacturing. At Plex, we know manufacturing isn’t just part of the business: manufacturing is the business. The Plex ERP software solution is purpose-built to fit your manufacturing business needs, evolving with you while adding value daily.

Manufacturing ERP software is not all the same. Plex can help you be different. Find out how.

Manufacturers have moved beyond the need for non-integrated point solutions to solve their challenges – they require a true ERP system. Beyond individual, bolt-on products, an ERP system enables connectivity between companies, their customers and their suppliers.

An ERP system must fit the business needs of a given company, while offering a broad array of capabilities designed for that business. With an eye toward the future, the right ERP system gives companies the power to scale at their pace while adding constant value in real time.
