We've used CDD for close to a decade, and plan to keep using it for at least the next decade!

We use CDD for most of our compound and data management.

Pros
- Very easy to use - Very reasonably priced - Continuously being improved, with new features regularly added - Phenomenal customer support, for both minor issues as well as more complicated custom requests

Cons
CDD does not have the flexibility and features of some other platforms that cost considerably more, but given the ease of use, the price, and the customer support, this is a fantastic tool. Also, as noted above, CDD continues to add new functions.

Great data base but could be better

Used weekly for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2020-07-08
Review Source: Capterra

It's a great software for this price, compared to other software. But they need to improve some aspect of it.

Pros
I really like how we can customize everything according to our needs. I also really like the ELN (optional)

Cons
I do NOT like at all the graph given by CDD vault. It's not graphic, we can't change anything on it. We will still have to use graphpad prism for the paper/grants figure.

CDD gets high marks for design, ease of use, functionality and reliability as a platform

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2018-01-11
Review Source: Capterra

Pros
Each feature is well thought out, tested (yes tested!) and documented. The interface is clean and does not overwhelm the end user or admin with unlimited configuration. I have helped deploy this software at over a dozen biotechs and most are up and running in a week. Compare that with a an expensive slow deployment of most other drug discovery platforms. Loading data into the system is quite easy and reliable with "error" and "warning" messages which are descriptive. Searching for and viewing data also gets high marks. From an admin perspective I find the system to have very low overhead.

Cons
There is not a lot I dislike about CDD, most items are addressed by the development team via a request. If I had to pick something it would probably be updating DRC data (specifically DRC) which has already been processed by end users. Ultimately this can be a bit cumbersome as you can either update in the CDD interface which is not quite perfect for editing this data OR you can reload the data. Reloading the data is less than desirable so it would be great if the interface undergoes some renovations.

Corporate database for biotech

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2018-10-26
Review Source: Capterra

We keep our corporate database of molecules and related data on CDD vault. We are a mostly virtual biotech company and have found CDD to be a good and economical solution to registering molecules, keeping track of batches, and tracking data. No need for a server and someone to manage it. Also, CDD has great training and support, often having solutions already figured out that can be used without much set-up.

Pros
Powerful and reliable way to register and track compounds for drug discovery.

Cons
As with any software, there is a learning curve.

Excellent product for collecting, organizing and analyzing all program data - compound and related biological data . This results in better and faster decision making.

Pros
The software is very powerful, yet intuitive. It is an excellent product for collecting, organizing and analyzing all program data - compound and related biological data

Cons
The only significant deficiency of the software, relative to more expensive LIMS-based systems is the ability generate barcodes and link to barcode readers

Ideal solution for small companies

Used weekly for 2+ years
Reviewed 2019-09-19
Review Source: Capterra

I wish this had been an option 25+ years ago when the only solutions were quite expensive, hard to maintain, and required specialized knowledge (IT, scripting, Unix/Linux). I was an early contributor to the CDD public databases and I'm delighted to see how CDD has progressed and become an invaluable part of my current company's work.

Pros
Ease of use: web-based so there are no programs to maintain, no backups to worry about Compound registration and biodata import: fast, checks for duplicates/batches, easy export to spreadsheets Data searching: can save routine queries; easy and fast to customize queries and data output datatypes Generality: Usable by both chemists and biologists on a daily basis. No need to get into the weeds of cheminformatics Integration with other software: not only is exporting to spreadsheets easy but the API interface with open source DataWarrior provides high-powered data and chemical structure analysis.

Cons
What's not to like? It could only be better if it were free.

A No-Brainer for small drug discovery labs

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2019-03-05
Review Source: Capterra

CDD Vault provides a cost and time effective way for us to manage all of our compounds (internal synthesis, reagents and compound library) in one place. To date, we're starting to populate the database with our bio data and are just beginning to use the data mining tools.

Pros
We were able to get up and running fairly quickly, importing old data and adding new from a similar product. CDD Vault did a great job of reading in some pretty wonky SMILES structures. It's hard to imagine a more cost-efficient way to handle chemical inventory, in-house and store bought, and biological data. You don't need a full time data dude with CDD Vault.

Cons
As a medicinal chemist who grew up with MDL, there's not much here to complain about. There a few interface conventions that take a little time to get used to.

I use the CDD Vault for our data management in our academic drug discovery lab.

Pros
the Vault is so easy, flexible, and intuitive to use, and requires nearly zero maintenance. It's a very cost effective way to recapitulate industrial-style databases in a smaller environment. In addition, it allows us to easily and smoothly share our data (structures, biology etc) with our many collaborators around the world. In addition, their customer/technical support is astonishingly fast and helpful.

Cons
I'd love for there to be a mobile app! Frequently I'm in a meeting or on the road, and want to quickly look something up.

Great highly cost effective tool for your chemical and biological data storage needs

Used weekly for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

I started using CDD around 2010. We wanted to move away from spreadsheet based software for organizing and storing our chemical and biological data. When I moved to a new start-up, we looked at several possible database solutions for managing chemistry and biological data and decided to return to CDD. CDD offers a very cost-effective, easily customizable and quick way to store, review and retrieve data. CDD is also very responsive to customer input on how to improve their product or create new tools. I have and will continue to recommend CDD to customers who are looking for database solutions from a highly responsive, customer driven business.

Pros
Quick way to store data, easy to use once you become familiar with it, highly response and effective support, 4-D visualization tools for your datasets

Cons
No big complaints - CDD is constantly improving and adding to their features
