Inventory Control

Maintain "first expiry, first out."

  • Measure and forecast production yield with accuracy. 

Production Control

Optimize processing and delivery times, and complete orders well ahead of time.

  • Synchronize scheduling by shelf life, allergen separation, equipment maintenance, and production times to maximize the use of your machinery and labor.
  • Measure Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) to ensure production and throughput isn't impacted.
  • Quickly identify any affected lots or shipments that must be recalled with immediate notifications to all distributors and customers. 

Sales Management

Optimize customer engagement with real-time data.

“We needed to do this right. We went through two iterations on a system that would help us with inventory—and they were expensive—so we didn’t want to go down that road again and not be happy with it in two years. Plex kept rising to the top because it is 100% cloud-based and it fit our needs as a food and beverage manufacturer.”
