Plex Online helps achieve a key mandate faced by the medical device industry: to maintain secure and auditable systems. From discovery through manufacturing, the details on how a product was made, and from which materials, must be accessible in the event a product's integrity is called into question.

Plex Online ERP, delivered as a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution, automatically tracks complete medical device manufacturing operations -- instantly and accurately tracking containers and lots through the manufacturing and shipping process. This function, as well as other capabilities related to quality and supply chain management, helps manufacturers meet quality and government mandates.

"Attendees will see and hear first-hand how Plex Online helps control complete operations from receipt of raw materials to shipment of finished goods," said Plex Systems CEO and President Mark Symonds. "By managing these processes from a single solution, the enterprise gains visibility across manufacturing operations, throughout the supply chain, and to customers. The value of Plex Online's seamless integration is well suited to those manufacturers already involved in medical devices as well as those seeking to transition into this growing industry."
