Features & Benefits

Plex is a one-stop shop for your food and beverage production management system. By connecting directly to plant floor machines and equipment and providing integrated Manufacturing Execution System (MES) and ERP functionality, Plex handles every aspect of the manufacturing operations to ensure food and beverage companies can maximize efficiency and minimize cost and risk.

Full Traceability

  • Easily manage your supplier lot information — from the time of receipt, through production and onto shipping, while ensuring correct segmentation for quality and traceability purposes
  • Maintain an electronic HACCP program and manage food safety standards that support GFSI compliance, including SQF, BRC and FSSC 22000.

Production Control Panel

  • Manage production with efficient scheduling and an innovative Control Panel that is connected all the way to your plant floor equipment.
  • Ensure that work centers are cleaned, maintained and prepped to government or customer specifications.
  • The Plex Control Panel enforces completion of required steps through check sheets before production can be started.

Unique Design and Features

Unlike other ERP systems, Inventory, Quality and Cost Management are natively built into the system to deliver a uniquely unified MES solution.

  • Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is easy to track so manufacturers can measure and drive continuous improvement.
  • Centrally manage your compliance system within the Document Control system — no more libraries of three-ring binders or version control conflict

Improve your overall performance, manage cost and inventory, and mitigate the risk of recalls by making quality management a real-time, proactive process.  Achieve and maintain quality certifications important in your industry or for your customers with best-in-class traceability. Provide auditors with instant access to centralized document management for proof of compliance.

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.
