Ease of use- very intuitive for any user that has worked with a line of business software
Web based- this allows total IT cost to be reduced. This is particularly true with multi-site/ high
user businesses. Because it is “cloud”, backups and risk plans are not as difficult to develop.
Unlimited users! This sets PLEX aside from all others. Don’t loose this model PLEX!
PLEax community is awesome. Lots of training/ knowledge there. This is typically an add on for other softwares.
UX still has its bugs but you can just as easy log in to classic and do what you need to do. UX is great so far.
Education portal should come free for the first 6 months for a free trial. There are so many training sessions and areas to find answers to your questions in this area. If PLEX gave a good preview, this would likely be a fast add on.
Plex has a lot going for it. Using SAP for another client, I find that Plex is much more of a value for the money and more dynamic with what you get. SAP relies a lot on additional modules and add-ons to meet user needs making the cost potentially exorbitant.
The current Plex interface is a bit dated, but Plex will be rolling out a new interface that is showing a lot of promise with it's additional functionality by the end of 2017. Plex was built for the automotive industry but has branched out to other industries as it has grown. The company has been growing rapidly and only recently has taken a new direction which is better aligned with its growth and ability to meet the needs of customers across industries.
Ease of use, lower price compared to big ERP software systems, willingness to listen to users and make changes accordingly, Plex's user community is a fantastic resource & frequently Plex experts will chime in to help users out
Clunky functionality and some limitations for the consumer products world (but this is being addressed, albeit slowly), current business intelligence tools associated with the software are hard to use
We migrated from Infor and will never look back. Plex has solved our problems in little time.
An easy GUI, integrated, and easily accessible from any device. At home I can generate reports and schedules.
Would like to see a more developed distribution framework. It's there but could be better and more efficient for all the logistics involved. The support staff takes too much time to respond but we have configured the system using their development tools.
The ability to track everything to do with employees and manufacturing is great. Everything in one ERP system.
The cons I've found with PLEX is the ease of learning where to find things and how to do things that you are wanting to do. I would consider myself pretty software savvy, but PLEX isn't as user friendly as I would like it to be.
Throughout the training and implementation phase we experienced several problems with the product that required us to call into Plex's support team (which costs money). Our shipping was disrupted early as labels were not printing correctly (despite following Plex's instructions). Several modules in the software were not set up from the get go and we had to pay for training to set them up. Overall there were numerous technical problems due to the system being inflexible and lacking common sense at times.
The Plex cloud-based ERP software is pretty quick and responsive. Also the accounting module has a lot of functionality.
The software is extremely difficult to use and requires significant user training. We experienced many technical problems (labels not working, drop ship module not allowing decimals, accounting jobs not being available for all entries, ect). As a whole the software is not flexible and could create problems for your company.
Manufacturers have to change the way they do business to remain competitive in today's fast changing market. ERP from the Plex Manufacturing Cloud is built for the new model of manufacturing where the plant floor comes first.
