We migrated from Infor and will never look back. Plex has solved our problems in little time.
An easy GUI, integrated, and easily accessible from any device. At home I can generate reports and schedules.
Would like to see a more developed distribution framework. It's there but could be better and more efficient for all the logistics involved. The support staff takes too much time to respond but we have configured the system using their development tools.

Ease of use- very intuitive for any user that has worked with a line of business software
Web based- this allows total IT cost to be reduced. This is particularly true with multi-site/ high
user businesses. Because it is “cloud”, backups and risk plans are not as difficult to develop.
Unlimited users! This sets PLEX aside from all others. Don’t loose this model PLEX!
PLEax community is awesome. Lots of training/ knowledge there. This is typically an add on for other softwares.
UX still has its bugs but you can just as easy log in to classic and do what you need to do. UX is great so far.
Education portal should come free for the first 6 months for a free trial. There are so many training sessions and areas to find answers to your questions in this area. If PLEX gave a good preview, this would likely be a fast add on.

The software is easy to use and the tech support team is great!
Very user friendly, cloud based so you can access and work from anywhere, the dashboard is great and an awesome tool to have.
The set up was a little tricky. The interface is also a bit dated. When it goes down it stays down for quite some time.

Plex has a lot going for it. Using SAP for another client, I find that Plex is much more of a value for the money and more dynamic with what you get. SAP relies a lot on additional modules and add-ons to meet user needs making the cost potentially exorbitant.
The current Plex interface is a bit dated, but Plex will be rolling out a new interface that is showing a lot of promise with it's additional functionality by the end of 2017. Plex was built for the automotive industry but has branched out to other industries as it has grown. The company has been growing rapidly and only recently has taken a new direction which is better aligned with its growth and ability to meet the needs of customers across industries.
Ease of use, lower price compared to big ERP software systems, willingness to listen to users and make changes accordingly, Plex's user community is a fantastic resource & frequently Plex experts will chime in to help users out
Clunky functionality and some limitations for the consumer products world (but this is being addressed, albeit slowly), current business intelligence tools associated with the software are hard to use
No one software will be everything to everyone, but the ability for a software to be upfront about its limitations is key. Plex hears its users and for that I would absolutely consider it when assessing your company's software needs.
In regard to ERP, this is all you need in order to track what is being done, how long it will take, and what else is needed for the project.
I think the layout could have been better in terms of visual aesthetics, but I do understand why it was designed the way it was. It is very effective!

Plex has been an integral part of our ability to support global growth very quickly. We are Tier 1 automotive (so not exactly a small company).
-User interface. Core functionality is very strong. Includes things that other ERPs do not like program management, advanced quality, maintenance, custom reporting, human resources.
-Software is targeted towards manufacturers, so it's not trying to be all things to all markets.
-Ease of expanded use.
-Good people to work with.
-Still developing tools to partner with other SaaS products. (as of 6/2015)
