Plex Systems Says It Is Easy to Be Green

Plex Online Enables Manufacturers to Conserve Resources and Reduce Carbon Footprint

AUBURN HILLS, MI--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) - Plex Systems, Inc., provider of Plex Online, Cloud ERP for manufacturers, today announced in recognition of the 41st anniversary of Earth Day on April 22, it is proud to continue to help its community of users operate greener and leaner manufacturing processes.

Plex Online is a software as a service (SaaS)/Cloud ERP solution that enables manufacturers to contribute to environmental sustainability by reducing three key green measurables: energy consumption, paper and print supply usage and carbon emissions.

Plex Systems helps customers connect and manage processes throughout their enterprise and significantly reduces the use of resources and energy consumption. In addition, Plex Online helps reduce ongoing IT maintenance costs, improve product quality and increase productivity leading to higher profits and leaner operations.

With Plex Online, reporting is maintained electronically, significantly reducing the need for paper, printers, and related supplies. As a result, customers can save time, eliminate duplication of efforts, improve quality and reduce manual processes; all of which can reduce energy consumption and conserve resources.

"We are proud that our technology can help manufacturers reduce consumption of energy and raw materials and contribute to helping save the environment," said Plex Systems Vice President Patrick Fetterman. "Plex Online users conserve precious resources by streamlining the entire manufacturing process, from the shop floor to the top floor."

Because a SaaS ERP solution can be accessed 24/7 from any Internet connection, employers can allow workers the option of working from home, when appropriate. One manufacturing customer saw employee satisfaction spike after implementing Plex Online and a work-from-home option, which resulted in reducing 500 commuting miles of carbon emissions per employee each month.

What started as a small grassroots demonstration on behalf of the environment in 1970 now has more than one billion people in 190 countries taking environmentally beneficial actions for Earth Day. Plex Systems is proud to contribute to this worthwhile effort.
