AUBURN HILLS, Mich., April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Plex Systems, Inc., providers of Plex Online software for the manufacturing enterprise, today announced availability of automated fixed asset tracking capabilities. The Plex Online integrated ERP system delivered as a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution lets manufacturers easily track the useful life of office equipment, computer equipment, vehicles and machinery.
