We are pleased to announce BOLD VAN is now an approved EDI VAN provider for the Plex Smart Manufacturing Platform, software designed for manufacturing from the beginning. Over three decades ago, the Plex platform was conceived on an automotive part manufacturer's shop floor. Because some plant workers felt frustrated with inaccuracies and breakdowns, they built Plex to improve their productivity. As a result, the company handles more than 8 billion daily transactions! And now, Plex users can easily add EDI connectivity with BOLD VAN.

Getting Started is Easy

Plex users may begin working with BOLD VAN in no time. First, sign up here and create your profile. Then, we'll handle the rest. There's no software to install or configure – everything is accessible through our EDI cloud.In addition, you don't need to contact your trading partners or change IDs. The transparent process allows business to continue without interruptions.

Scalable Plan Options

Clients enjoy our affordable, scalable plan options free of sign-up or setup fees. All plans include:

  • Reprocess documents
  • AS2 capability
  • Non-EDI capability
  • 90 days of viewable data
  • Seven years of archived data
  • 99.998% system uptime
  • Free support

Shipping with BOLD VAN

Additionally, Plex users may integrate our EDI-compliant shipping module called DES. This distribution enablement system allows you to manage the entire pick-and-ship process from one place for many shipments. Moreover, DES's compatibility with all major retailers and carriers means the days of logging into multiple sites are gone. Instead, you will happily manage the entire operation from one single portal.Furthermore, DES takes charge of EDI requirements, creating UCC labels, automating the entire shipping process (including ship notices), dock planning for deliveries and shipments, and finding inefficiencies in your warehouse.

Plex ERP Software

Meanwhile, Plex ERP offers the following:

  • Financial consolidation and reporting across locations or business units.
  • A complete view of all aspects of an enterprise to ensure compliance with customer, supplier, or industry needs.
  • Accounting for AR/AP/GL, reporting, consolidation, and cash flow management.
  • Tracking for employee expenses, time and attendance, labor, skills and training, incidents, and other records.
  • Purchasing functions such as RFQ, inbound shipping, purchase orders, requisitions, and supplier pricing.
