Plex Systems Launches Plex Online SmartPlex Mobile Application

TROY -- Plex Systems Inc., provider of Plex Online cloud manufacturing management software, announced the launch of SmartPlex, a service allowing users of Plex Online to access and manipulate data through a variety of mobile devices such as smartphones, including those based on the iOS and Android operating systems.

Designed to enhance connectivity of executives and other staff who benefit from accessing and inputting management-level information, data is presented using displays optimized for the presentation capabilities of mobile devices. The initial applications supported are workflow, user support, corporate directory, expense tracking and contacts. Additional functionality will be rolled out as user feedback is compiled and assessed.

SmartPlex presents an ideal combination of usability and utility in a secure, encrypted messaging form factor, extending the ability to manage and maintain the enterprise from anywhere with nearly any device. Using the same notification process that Plex Online uses to communicate with desktop workstations, data and functionality are now available regardless of platform and location.

"SmartPlex empowers the individuals leveraging mobile devices, who are growing in number every day," said Plex Systems vice president of strategy Jim Shepherd. "Providing access to the enterprise's mission-critical data in real-time from nearly any device, anywhere, is a game changer that will allow business decision-makers to respond quickly as business conditions change."

Plex Online offers industry-leading features for virtually every department within a manufacturer, including manufacturing execution system and quality management system for the shop floor, supply chain management for procurement, enterprise resource planning for finance and management, and business intelligence for executive management.

Plex Online's comprehensive functional coverage delivers a "shop floor to top floor" view of a manufacturer's operations, enabling management to run its business at maximum efficiency. Founded in 1995, Plex Systems is headquartered in Troy, with customers around the globe.
