About Plexxis Software

“A year after being with Plexxis, you’ll wish you started today.”

- Kevin Gust, President Paragon Drywall

‘Our story starts with 2’

In 1999, Chris Loranger, a dairy farmer with a love for computers, moved to Toronto where he met a drywall contractor who hired him to build an estimating system.  Chris asked his cousin Jay Fraser, a computer engineer, for help and the project was completed.

‘2 became 4’

The success of their estimating system led to a request for project management and accounting tools. Chris’ brother Remi, a robotics engineer, and lifelong friend Jeni Mitchell, a graduate of kinesiology, joined the team and helped create the Drywall ERP.

‘4 approaching 40’

When contractors learned how Plexxis eliminates the frustrations caused by many construction management software and by using separate systems, Plexxis soared from a staff of 4 to almost 40.

All profit has been, and continues to be, invested into taking the trade to a whole new level.

’40 for the trade’

Today, the Plexxis team delivers so much value to wall and ceiling contractors that the Drywall ERP has replaced almost every leading construction software yet none have ever replaced the Drywall ERP.
