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!

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.

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.

We like the "all-you-can-eat" pricing model.
Nearly everything. Plex has nearly destroyed our company and that is not an exaggeration. Part of it I could chalk up to a poor implementation via consultant company and not having the competency on the inside to know what to ask for. Even when we tried to have a completely new implementation done by another consulting company, we could clearly see that Plex was never going to work for us. The MRP, routers and BOM's are completely disjointed making planning a very tedious task. You would think that a simple report like a costed BOM would be standard, but that doesn't exist. The management of Plex has been uninterested in addressing any of these issues (our Director of ops identified over 38 major problems) so we are actually looking to change systems, at the cost of hundred's of thousands of dollars.

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.
