Plex Systems Partners With Actify, Allowing Direct Access To CAD Data

TROY, Mich. – Plex Systems Inc., provider of Plex Online, Cloud ERP for manufacturers, and Actify Inc., a global leader in visual product knowledge solutions, today announced a strategic partnership to service manufacturers leveraging CAD functionality.

With the integration of Actify’s product knowledge solutions, Plex Online users can directly access 3D and 2D CAD data from within the Cloud ERP solution–without the application of CAD software.
