Is Your Current ERP System Failing Your Users?

Legacy ERP applications (even cloud hosted legacy apps) are designed for older technologies that often require client software, plug-ins, or are limited to specific brands or versions of browsers. This magnifies the support needed for each and every user device and limits benefits from modern browser-based technologies. Today’s enterprise employees expect to be able to accessing information whenever and wherever they need it and can’t be tethered to a stationary terminal or desktop to do their job.

ERP user adoption is key to gaining access to the information needed to drive business forward. Here are some indicators that your users are not getting the most value out of your current ERP system.

  • The ERP system requires specific plug-ins or client side software to be installed on every machine
  • Your ERP system includes applications from multiple original sources, meaning that the user interface is not consistent across the system. Users must deal with different “look and feel” making learning more challenging and efficient operation more difficult
  • Users can’t access critical manufacturing information through tablets or mobile devices
  • Adoption is lagging and users complain about the system they’re being forced to use
  • You do not have the freedom to choose the best browser or operating system for your business because it is not supported by your ERP system
  • Users can’t configure our customize menus and workflows to conform to how they work

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.
