Why Does ERP Fall Short?
Most manufacturers look to their enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to enhance the organization’s overall performance. In many cases, the original drivers that led to an ERP selection were the goals of streamlining and simplifying business processes for a sustainable competitive advantage.
In case after case, implementations miss their mark. Instead of delivering promised cost reductions, business agility and performance improvements, ERP systems create complexity, duplication of effort, and in the worst cases, poor quality and customer service, and a dangerous lack of visibility into the business.
Likewise, legacy ERP systems don’t keep pace with change. Moreover, the manufacturing sector faces continually changing business processes, data, and requirements. This makes it nearly impossible for a typical, inflexible ERP system to keep pace with what the business really needs.
The system meets key targets for data continuity and disaster recovery.
Plex delivers aggressive recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO) goals of two hours or less. The targets are in line with the world’s leading technology providers for continuity and disaster recovery planning. This means your company can be up and running within two hours of a disaster with data that is no older than two hours. This approach delivers a level of responsiveness, redundancy, and safety for manufacturers that is virtually impossible for them to match internally.
