The term “cloud” can mean different things to different people, but when it comes to business, “cloud” means streamlining and making things run easier and faster. The manufacturing cloud is simply a way for companies to host valuable information on the internet. At Tella Tool we recently installed a new ERP system from Plex which gives us a single platform for all our ERP operations on the cloud. This way of storing information is popular because there’s no limit to what you can store, it’s inexpensive, and you get to easily outsource security, maintenance, and support.
This past April, Plex Systems kicked off Power Plex, its largest annual manufacturing event for customers. The event brings together over 1,200 attendees and focused on bringing technology and manufacturing leaders together to learn, collaborate, and celebrate the employees and companies that create things. Attendees represented a wide range of industries, including: electric scooters, gourmet candy, aerospace composites, and more. Tella Tool and Manufacturing, was in the mix!
PowerPlex lasted four days and focused on people sharing their best practices and any new developments to bring manufacturing and technology together. This year there were educational tracks, which featured over 100 speakers and ended with 84 breakout sessions. The content of the tracks featured shop floor execution, supply chain management, platform and technology, business management, manufacturing management, and trends in the manufacturing industry. There was also a Plex Experience Lab and expos which allowed participants to get hands-on experience and see partner solutions.
Events like PowerPlex are an important way for manufacturers to see progress in action and bring together like-minded individuals and companies. It gives manufacturing professionals the chance to see what others are doing, how they are doing it, and the progress that is being made. Tella Tool and Manufacturing, being a leading custom job shop, is continually looking to expand their knowledge base and innovation in an effort to manufacture the highest quality products for their customers. Tella Tool believes there’s no better way to serve their customers than by staying at the forefront of the manufacturing industry.
