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
Time used: Less than 6 months
Frequency of use: Daily

Recommendations to others considering Plex
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.
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). Pros -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. Cons -Development lead-time. -Still developing tools to partner with other SaaS products. (as of 6/2015)
I highly recommend Plex Online to anyone!
- Very easy to use - Plex Online is always update to update. Cloud eliminates the need for installation upgrades. - Highly customizable to suit your companies needs - Helpful knowledgeable staff
