Plex Systems, Inc., provider of Plex Online, the No. 1 rated manufacturing ERP software, today announced that Class II medical device manufacturer Inovo, Inc. has launched Plex Online as its new manufacturing enterprise resource planning (ERP) software provider.
Based in Naples, Florida, Inovo is a leading manufacturer of oxygen regulators and conservers, serving the needs of home healthcare, EMS and hospital markets. The company began seeking a new ERP system following the acquisition of its largest competitor in late 2008.
“We had too many software platforms, including an accounting system, a production system, and several Access databases,” explained Mike Mulroy, Inovo, Inc. chief operating officer. “Our systems were not integrated, and it was very difficult to assemble the right data to manage our business.”
In June 2009, Inovo signed on as a new customer of the complete Plex Online system. Implementation began in September. Phase one was launched January 1. It included all financial-related functions such as account receivables, accounts payable, and inventory management. Inovo is now implementing quality controls, engineering change controls, corrective and preventive action (CAPA) systems, and similar functions.
“We are very happy with Plex Online,” noted Mulroy. “Its quality control functions are head and shoulders above anything we’ve seen before, and the system matches the way we track product quality internally.” “Self-validating to FDA standards is simple with Plex Online,” he continued. “Validation requires that what you expect to come out of the system does come out of the system, and that reliability is one of the key advantages of Plex Online.”
“We are pleased that Inovo has chosen Plex Online as its SaaS ERP provider,” said Plex Systems CEO and President Mark Symonds. “We look forward to helping this industry leader use our technology, and the precision that it enables, to meet its rigorous traceability demands and comply with industry regulations.”
