PLI Wins Best Deployment Award

Phoenix Logistics has been named a winner of the 2010 Best Deployment Scenario Award in two categories: Enterprise Management and SaaS Business Application for SMB.

This prestigious award is presented annually by Info Security Products Guide to recognize best in class deployments of software with advanced, groundbreaking solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of information technology and security.

Phoenix Logistics replaced 40 stand-alone systems and spreadsheets with one fully integrated ERP Software as a Service (SaaS) solution, Plex Online. The company eliminated the cost of printing, handling and storing over 20,000 pages of documents each month, saving more than $53,000 per year. Phoenix Logistics also implemented real-time changes on the shop floor that reduced processing time by 75 percent.

The company achieved ROI of less than 18 months on its Plex Online investment. The speedy implementation drove immediate results, enabling Phoenix Logistics to manage an ambitious, internally funded 50 percent growth rate.

“Plex Online brought us paperless, integrated real-time traceability so we could isolate issues with pinpoint precision,” said Ben Sommerville, Phoenix Logistics’ chief operating officer. “Real-time, detailed production data became available to all users almost immediately following the systems launch.”

“The most powerful message vendors can ever give to provide their capabilities and continued commitment in solving customer’s needs is through successful deployments,” said Rake Narang, editor-in-chief, Info Security Products Guide. “Plex Online’s successful deployment at Phoenix Logistics is a prime example of how a flexible, fully integrated ERP solution can help manufacturers manage complex business processes simply and efficiently.”
