Increase your productivity, visibility, and supplier rating to improve your responsiveness, drive shorter cycle times, and reduce risk.

Meeting Automotive Industry Challenges

Automotive manufacturing suppliers have to meet the needs of a demanding and competitive supply chain. Delivering on complex customer requirements can take focus away from reducing inventory, eliminating scrap, dealing with volatile commodity costs, and balancing a workforce that’s becoming harder to staff, grow, and keep. We know your industry and we’ve got your back.

The Plex Smart Manufacturing Platform was born on the automotive shop floor and purpose-built to deliver the total visibility and integrated quality that you need to make world-class products and grow your business.
