TROY, Mich., Nov. 1, 2012 Plex Systems Inc., provider of Plex Online, Cloud ERP for manufacturers, today announced the launch of SmartPlex, a service allowing users of Plex Online to access and manipulate data through a variety of mobile devices such as smartphones, including those based on the iOS and Android operating systems.

Designed to enhance connectivity of executives and other staff who benefit from accessing and inputting management-level information, data is presented using displays optimized for the presentation capabilities of mobile devices. The initial applications supported are workflow, user support, corporate directory, expense tracking and contacts. Additional functionality will be rolled out as user feedback is compiled and assessed.
