Plex Manufacturing Cloud | Technology


Plex Technology

Plex was built from the shop floor up to deliver a unified ERP and MES multi-tenant SaaS solution. Backed by resiliency and redundancy from world-class data centers, Plex is designed to scale – adapting as your business grows. Its modular architecture supports extensions and integrations using industry standard API technologies. Plex releases updates continuously with unique opt-in capabilities, enabling customers to immediately begin testing and using new features and eliminating the need for disruptive, costly upgrades. And customers can securely access Plex in a browser, from any device, with no client installation needed.

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)

Not all cloud providers are the same. Plex pioneered ERP and MES manufacturing software in the cloud more than 20 years ago. We are a true SaaS provider for your manufacturing needs – from shop floor to top floor.

Multi-tenancy Cloud

The entire Plex user community subscribes to a single line of Plex software code running on multi-tenant cloud infrastructure, so you speak the same language as other customers do and can share industry best practices with others.

Continuous Innovation

You have immediate opt-in access to newly released capabilities to test and take live as a result of always-current, versionless software. No more negatively impactful legacy software upgrades, or falling behind currently-suported versions.

Unified Manufacturing Functionality

“Plex has built in what others have to bolt-on” – Plex was built by manufacturers for manufacturers, with out-of-the-box functionality to be your manufacturing system of record. 

World-class Availability

Secure access to business data and business continuity are Plex’s top priorities. We are bound by a service level agreement (SLA) and routinely perform with greater than 99.9% uptime, the best cloud performance in the manufacturing industry to our knowledge.
Datacenter Redundancy

World-class, active/passive, geographically dispersed datacenter configuration maximizes resiliency and redundancy – globally – so you can focus on running your business.

Flexible Business Scale

Cloud elasticity enables Plex to adjust to your changing computing, storage and business needs, one less thing for you to have to worry about. Moreover, we allow unlimited users with your subscription, even users from your suppliers and customers!

Mobile Workforce

Your untethered workforce can access Plex through device-agnostic browsers as well as its mobile app. Plex also enables shop floor mobile connectivity to Bluetooth-enabled scanners, wearables, and your production machines.

Anywhere Access

You have access to Plex in real time, without having to install and maintain client software. Because Plex is a cloud-native, browser-accessible solution, you can connect securely over any internet or mobile network connection.

Ready for Your Enterprise

Industry-standard API support enables you to extend the core solution, whether it’s communication with other applications or controlled data sharing. Identity and access management (IAM) and single sign-on (SSO) promote highly secured, federated access.
