Background and Analyst View

Plex Systems has a customer base of over 480 companies, mostly in North America, but also in China, Japan, and Europe. Founded in 1995 as Plexus Systems, the company started as a project for an automotive supplier, and later was spun off into an independent entity with a set of core technology for quality tracking and shop floor management. In its first few years, the company customized each customer’s on-premise implementation based on the core technology it had developed. In 2000, the company began its move to a Web-based solution, embracing the on-demand, single-source, and multi-tenant model. This deployment model replaced the on-premise software in 2001 and became the only deployment model offered by Plex Systems. Read more
