"Plex was a great product I liked the sandbox feel"

What do you like best?

Plex allowed you to do pretty much anything you wanted and has a sandbox feel to it that allowed me to fully customize what I wanted.

What do you dislike?

I didn't like the idea of champions, I found myself asking my champion constantly about things and I knew more than he did.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use the plex community. It's a very useful tool if you're stuck.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I solved a problem with certifications and used the supplier list application very often.

"Good way to streamline all aspects of manufacturing"

What do you like best?

I like the capability of Plex to keep every area of the business running through one platform, intersecting when needed: HR, finance, purchasing, engineering, production, supply chain/logistics, etc. Plex is also able to be customized to your business' specific usage needs.

What do you dislike?

Certain areas could be more user-friendly, perhaps streamlined as far as redundancy in data entry and clicking "update" for everything.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would definitely recommend this, especially for a manufacturing business setting.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is definitely beneficial in inventory tracking, production tracking, etc.

What Mixed Mode ERP solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Good for Operations - but Accounting was an afterthought"

What do you like best?

The system provides real-time updates on most transactions. Also, it is usually fairly easy to make corrections/updates on existing transactions.

What do you dislike?

SCAR - everything else is individual transactions with immediate updates. But, for anything posting to inventory, you need to run a month-end batch referred to as SCAR in order to post that activity to the General Ledger. Also, there is no one, single place that tracks inventory transactions - its all in different files that must be accessed separately.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For Operations and Manufacturing, the system works well. Accounting functions appear to have been an after-thought.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Manufacturing operations have seen some benefits.

"Plex Review"

What do you like best?

Plex does a really good job organizing material and making it easily accessible. Plex does a great job keeping track of inventory and cutting out labor hours to do inventory manually.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike about Plex is that it is very difficult to learn. There are many portals but once you learn them or create short cuts it is simple.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Plex is a great tool once it is learned. It is important to spend plenty of time on Plex to become comfortable and effecient.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have not had any issues from Plex. The only issues I have ran into is co-workers not using Plex correctly and creating issues later on such as inventory levels being off.

"efficient way to organize documents and track business hours"

What do you like best?

Plex allows us to share technical documents on a cloud server as well as track individual project hours with specific tasks.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the layout of the software. The software overall works great. However, the style and design of the website could use some improvement.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problem that we are solving with Plex Manufacturing Cloud is the ability to track individual project hours as well as a cloud where anyone can check technical documents. The benefits include easy access to what tasks/projects employees are working on.

"Use of Plex by production supervisor"

What do you like best?

Plex can be accessed from any computer or smart phone. I like that it is live and can be monitored when away from work if necessary.

What do you dislike?

That I have to put my password in every 90 minutes if I haven't used the system for that time period.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is much more beneficial to have Plex live versus our past system that wasn't.

"bad news"

What do you like best?

not much. I cannot do costing without going into test system and using a dummy part to change costs just to get an estimate cost for a new product.

What do you dislike?

things are hard to find, do not connect well, tables have the same names for different tables so hard to query from them.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

find a different software

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using for AP, which is not great but not horrible. Also for costing, which does not work for our needs.

Engineering modules seem to be way to complicated so we don't use those as we should be able to
