Purchasing With End-to-End Visibility
Gain control of your procure-to-pay (P2P) process with the Plex Manufacturing Cloud. Plan and automate your purchases, proactively communicate with your suppliers, manage the quality of material and increase inventory availability, all while improving your cash flow.
The Cost of Quality
Getting suppliers to deliver on time with high quality and low cost is no small feat. There are many questions you can ask during the process: Did we transmit the PO on time? Have we received the right parts on time? Are we sure we paid the right price? Disconnected external quality management systems can create delays and duplicated effort while failing to produce an end-to-end record for traceability. With the Plex Manufacturing Cloud, you have everything you need for an efficient and confident procurement process through integrated, industry-leading quality management functionality. Test plans, traceability, measurements and reports are all integrated into powerful Plex procure-to-pay functionality, available at your fingertips.
Focus on the Bottom Line
Materials make up a significant part of cost of goods. Use Plex to communicate proactively and effectively with key suppliers — reducing errors and costs as a result — to ensure that you get the quality and timely delivery you need. The Plex Manufacturing Cloud integrates purchasing with MRP, receiving, payments and financial accounting to keep all parts of the organization working together in a harmony, delivering your business a competitive edge.
Enhance Supplier Communications
Give your suppliers a comprehensive solution for bi-directional communication and collaboration. The Plex Supplier Portal in the Plex Manufacturing Cloud delivers a complete view of plans and schedules, current orders, previous transactions, quality measurements, material specifications, payment status and more. You stay informed through confirmations, ship notices and other important information entered by your suppliers. You also reduce time and effort spent on answering supplier questions. And to ensure data safety, you can control and limit supplier access to only the items, orders and information that pertain to their business with you.
