Plex Systems, Inc., provider of SaaS manufacturing ERP software, Plex Online, has announced the availability of a new paper from researchers at Aberdeen Group that sheds light on the acceptance of software as a service (SaaS) ERP systems. The report is titled "Leveraging SaaS ERP for Impressive Results" and is available at the Plex Systems Resource Center.
The research reveals a 70 per cent increase in willingness to consider ERP delivered as a software as a service (SaaS). According to the researchers, the increase in appeal is due to the manufacturing sector's desire to avoid complex upgrades and control IT costs. System features were also cited as extremely important, in addition to vendor viability, references, ease and speed of implementation and ease of use.
Notes the report's author, Cindy Jutras, Vice President and Research Fellow at Aberdeen Group, "What was noteworthy in our findings is that Plex Systems is one of the very few veteran SaaS ERP vendors, with a 10 year track record in the SaaS market. This longevity, coupled with Plex Systems' unique approach to opt-in enhancements, positions the company well. Manufacturers that have implemented Plex Online have achieved impressive results."
"This report confirms the viability of ERP systems delivered as a SaaS or cloud solution," added Mark Symonds, president and CEO of Plex Systems. "Manufacturers in a range of industries such as automotive, food processing, medical device and others, have been able to cut costs, improve production quality and gain other competitive advantages."
