Auburn Hills based Plex Systems, Inc., provider of Plex Online ERP manufacturing software, today announced that it achieved record results in the quarter ended March 31, 2009. The company's revenue during this quarter increased 25 percent over first quarter 2008; this increase comes on the heels of 33 percent year-over-year revenue growth in 2008 - despite the year-long downturn in manufacturing, the company's core market.
"Manufacturers across all industries are painfully aware that they cannot continue with 'business as usual', and so they are seeking out new solutions to reduce costs, improve quality, and drive new revenue," said Mark Symonds, Plex Systems president and CEO.
"Manufacturers have realized that they cannot allow obsolete technology to paralyze their businesses. Many are investing in enterprise software that has a proven return on investment," said Symonds. "Plex Online's combination of a powerful feature set for manufacturers, software as a service (SaaS) delivery model, and subscription pricing is the perfect solution to deliver benefits faster than legacy software deployments, while allowing companies to preserve their cash and credit capacity."
The first quarter revenue growth includes additional business from existing customers as well as the addition of eight new customers:
Q4 Industries - Nevada-based ambient beverage manufacturer specializing in aseptic processing, with products such as non-carbonated juices, drinks and private-label wine packaging.
Mariah Power - Reno, Nevada-based wind technology corporation; a manufacturer of Windspire(R), low cost, attractive, affordable wind power appliances.
