The Business Improvement Team, a network of trusted providers offering high quality consulting services, announced that Mark Symonds, formerly CEO of Plex Systems, a small software company that embraced cloud computing early and rapidly grew to a leader in its field will serve as the keynote speaker at “Business Performance Improvement 3.0 Series” on Tuesday December 10, 2013. In addition, there will be a panel of business experts from the Business Improvement Team to answer business questions. This will be an exciting opportunity to network with peers.
Mark grew and developed Plex Systems, the sole scale provider of Cloud ERP for manufacturers with Plex Online, a true single-source, multi-tenant SaaS solution.
Plex provided software to run all aspects of manufacturing enterprises from small shops to global companies. With virtually no outside capital, Plex took on behemoths SAP, Oracle and others to disrupt the well-established business software market. The culture at Plex and their operational strategies allowed them to maintain a 6-year annual growth rate of nearly 30%. After engineering a successful buyout Mark is coaching and mentoring fledgling new tech startups. We are fortunate that he has agreed to share his remarkable story at this event.
The event is co-sponsored by the Business Improvement Team and Hennessey Capital, a division of Hitachi Capital America Corp. It will be held at the Somerset Inn, 2601 West Big Beaver in Troy on Tuesday December 10, 2013 from 7:30 – 9:30 am. There is no cost to attend.
