AUBURN HILLS, MI--(Marketwire - December 9, 2010) - Plex Systems, Inc., provider of Plex Online, the No. 1 rated SaaS manufacturing ERP software, announces the availability of a free white paper to help food processors learn how ERP features -- including track and trace, document management and real-time reporting -- can help meet food safety requirements.

In light of recent legislation such as the 2010 FDA Food Safety Modernization Act and a number of food safety incidents, traceability of food products back from the consumer to the beginning of the supply chain has never been as important.

Noted Mark Symonds, Plex Systems president and CEO, "The new law requires food and beverage processors to develop and document an aggressive strategy for preventing contamination, and it will enable the FDA to conduct random audits quicker and more efficiently. Plex Online can help processors improve their safety practices while more easily and thoroughly tracking products and ingredients all the way back to the farms where they originated."
