Plex Systems Infrastructure Director to Present on Company's Industry-Leading Disaster Recovery Methods

Flint to Serve as Featured Presenter at Great Lakes Software Excellence Conference, Nov. 17

AUBURN HILLS, MI--(Marketwire - November 12, 2009) - Plex Systems, Inc., provider of the No. 1 rated ERP software for manufacturers today announced that Andrew Flint, Plex Systems director of Infrastructure, will be a featured presenter during the Great Lakes Software Excellence Conference (GLSEC) at the Prince Conference Center at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Mich. on Nov. 17.

Flint will share with event attendees how Plex Systems approached the aggressive goal of achieving recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO) of two hours, a goal it achieved earlier this year with its Plex Online ERP software system. This capability -- having all manufacturing software, hardware, and operating systems loaded, and data up and running in two hours or less -- is one of the highest levels of disaster recovery in the industry.

In his presentation, "How to Achieve World-Class Disaster Recovery Time Objectives," Flint will describe the disaster recovery processes Plex Systems developed for its manufacturing software as a service (SaaS) solution, Plex Online. This presentation is part of the Quality Assurance & Testing track, scheduled for the second day of the two-day conference.

The GLSEC is the premier software development conference in West Michigan, where software leaders and technical experts gather to learn about the industry. It covers the diverse practices and technologies that make the best software what it is, from the web to embedded, from management to bit-twiddling.

"We look forward to discussing our disaster recovery capabilities with this highly knowledgeable group of software leaders," said Plex Systems CEO and President Mark Symonds. "The fact that our level of reliability and responsiveness is available on a SaaS ERP manufacturing system differentiates Plex Online in the market, and we are pleased that others want to learn from our experience."
