The best solution for Media Management

What do you like best?

The user interface is top notch, and it is consistent on all platforms. Easy to use and understand with very limited knowledge needed to use.

What do you dislike?

Would love to have a little bit better pricing on the Lifetime Plex Pass. It seems like there are always promos that I am never invited to get.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try, but I would advise running it from a server and not from a NAS for best compatibility.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If you have a server that has a lot of media files, Plex will help organize and give you playback on a multitude of devices.

Plex Review

What do you like best?

Plex does a really good job organizing material and making it easily accessible. Plex does a great job keeping track of inventory and cutting out labor hours to do inventory manually.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike about Plex is that it is very difficult to learn. There are many portals but once you learn them or create short cuts it is simple.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Plex is a great tool once it is learned. It is important to spend plenty of time on Plex to become comfortable and effecient.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have not had any issues from Plex. The only issues I have ran into is co-workers not using Plex correctly and creating issues later on such as inventory levels being off.

What Quality Management (QMS) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

User friendly streaming

What do you like best?

Very user friendly. Ability to easily stream media to home devices.

What do you dislike?

The extra features require additional cost.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try. Especially easy for those who are not very tech savvy. Plex makes setting up a media server as simple as installing a smartphone app.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Struggled with having all streamed content on a single network and this eliminated that struggle. The benefit of ease and peace of mind and a more efficient process are just a few of the benefits.

by setting up a home media server, you can put all your content on a single computer or network-attached storage (NAS) device and access it on any phone, computer, or television on the network.

Use of Plex by production supervisor

What do you like best?

Plex can be accessed from any computer or smart phone. I like that it is live and can be monitored when away from work if necessary.

What do you dislike?

That I have to put my password in every 90 minutes if I haven't used the system for that time period.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is much more beneficial to have Plex live versus our past system that wasn't.
