The Plex Manufacturing Cloud Architecture
Features & Capabilities
Modern Manufacturing in the Cloud
In today’s highly competitive manufacturing environment, you need every cost saving and efficiency gain you can find. The Plex Manufacturing Cloud gives you everything you need to run your mission-critical ERP operations, allowing you to stay focused on your business instead of software and hardware upkeep.
Plex's ERP technology provides Software-as-a-Service, using a state-of-the-art multi-tenant model that lowers costs through economies of scale. We take care of the hardware, middleware and ongoing management and support; you just tune your operations to run exactly how you want them on our platform.
Fast Time to Value
The Plex Manufacturing Cloud significantly reduces the cost of installing, maintaining, supporting and upgrading your ERP system. Our cloud-based platform lets you get up and running in just a few months, allowing you to focus on business decisions rather than technology. And Plex eliminates the need to spend money on new hardware, middleware, database servers, added IT staff, upgrades, additional licenses or ongoing maintenance as your business grows. Total cost of ownership is lower not just in year one, but throughout the lifetime of your relationship with Plex.
ERP Technology You Can Trust
We wouldn’t expect you to let just anyone run your ERP operations. Plex has a decade of deep manufacturing and cloud ERP expertise that you can trust.
- Plex maintains our own data centers to make sure we can guarantee the level of support and responsiveness you expect and deserve. Close monitoring of all operations provides proactive error detection and correction as well as continuous performance tuning.
- Because the Plex Manufacturing Cloud is built as a native cloud application set, security is built in, not an afterthought.
- With Plex, your uptime is also guaranteed — at 99.985%. On-premise or hosted legacy ERP software simply can’t meet the uptime requirements of today’s modern manufacturing companies.
- Our multi-tenant model supports seamless scalability, eliminates upgrades and allows for continuous innovation — all without added cost or disruption.
- And all of this is available to you at an affordable cost, with little or no capital expense up front.

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.
