Plex Systems, Inc., provider of the #1 rated ERP software for manufacturers, today announced enhanced configurable dashboard features that increase productivity and efficiency from the shop floor to the top floor.
Users create and modify intuitive dashboard displays themselves within the ERP solution, selecting relevant Plex Online business data for a real-time snapshot into the organization. Timely performance metrics give a “big picture” look into the organization.
With the enhanced dashboard, users select what information is important to them (shipping; quality; production; engineering; financials, etc.). The dashboard display provides real-time insight into critical issues such as late ships, quality problems, and more. Users then quickly drill down to the root problem directly from the dashboard display, using a simple Web interface, and take appropriate action.
“Today’s manufacturer is challenged to continuously monitor critical production issues and identify areas that need immediate attention. The configurable dashboard provides this at-a-glance perspective,” said Plex Systems Vice President of Marketing, Patrick Fetterman. “As an example, the shipping department or shop floor manager controls how they see meaningful data in a way that enables them to effectively monitor business performance. This improves decision making without adding to IT overhead.”
