Plex Online's Unique Approach to Implementation Saves Manufacturers Time and Money

Plex Systems Earns 98 Percent Customer Satisfaction Rating in New System Implementations

AUBURN HILLS, MI--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) -  Plex Systems, Inc., provider of the No. 1 rated manufacturing ERP software, today announced a 98 percent customer satisfaction rate among users of Plex Online manufacturing ERP software.

Users of Plex Online, a software as a service (SaaS) ERP solution for the manufacturing enterprise, report significantly higher satisfaction compared with competitors' software. The Chaos Report, produced by The Standish Group, indicates an industry average of 66 percent of customers are satisfied with computer system implementations, proving the relative effectiveness of Plex Online.

"Plex is changing the way ERP is delivered and the way it is implemented," said Plex Systems CEO and President Mark Symonds. "SaaS takes away the non-value-added activities so manufacturers can focus on setting up their data and configuring the system for their business."

Plex takes a "just-in-time" approach to training that is less onerous and formal than has been standard for new systems implementations. Typically, implementing new application platforms required many staff hours of work-intensive, non-productive training. Plex Online training can be completed in an hour or less. Plex Online can be deployed in less than half the time of typical implementations and with the majority of employees remaining on the job during the entire process. Using a combination of face-to-face meetings and teleconferencing, Plex Systems helps customers quickly deploy the system and immediately benefit from the industry leading ERP solution.

Jagemann Stamping Company recently implemented Plex Online in only six months with zero missed shipments.

"We were pleasantly surprised that we could carry on business as usual without interruption during implementation," said Patti Nowak, Jagemann Stamping Company IT manager. "The implementation was a partnership between the Plex Systems team and our staff. We were able to quickly understand and use the system and are very pleased with the results."
