Pros

there's extremely easy access and very accurate data, and the follow up to details and questions seems to be very professional and timely

I am an end user who looks at data reporting only.

2015-08-26

Pros

The software seems to cover all needed aspects of Chemical Distribution.

Cons

The reporting is a little difficult to manipulate. The data set up is vital as the reporting results are very touchy and will report incorrect results if you work outside of how you set up the data model.

It Doesn't Get Any Worse Than This

2018-10-04

Absolutely the worst ERP system that I have ever used. Anyone who has ever used any other ERP system will KNOW that Chempax is TERRIBLE.

Pros

The name is cute: Chempax. Low cost but then we get less than what we paid for.

Cons

Purchase Order/PO Receipt/Supplier Invoice/Aged Payables/Select Invoices To Pay/Print Checks/Customer Service.

Chempax is a great option for any midsized business needing a robust ERP

2019-01-02

There are new releases coming our on a regular basis as they continue to add new functionality and integrate new technology.

Pros

The support team is very responsive to our needs (we don't really need them for that much, but when we do need them they are always helpful and knowledgeable).

Cons

We need to buy a new server this year, we would like to see an accelerated investment in a cloud/hosted version of the product to reduce support costs.

Datacor Chempax has made my job so much easier.

2015-08-26

Pros

What makes chempax really good is their willingness to make adjustments to the software as needed and their availability when there are issues.

I have taken generic classes for Crystal, but that does not help in the understanding of Chempax's database structure.

User friendly

2015-08-24

Pros

What I like most about Chempax is the AP module because it is very user friendly. I never had any issue contacting Datacor if I encounter any difficulty on Chempax.

Cons

The only thing I don't like about Chempax is their detail reports on the GL module because there is not too much space on the comments column.

Chempax review

2015-08-26

Pros

I like that when something is wrong Chempax most likely can tell and not let you proceed.

Cons

the reason why i least like this product is because i have a lot of inter company transactions going on and i am constantly getting run time errors and when i need to run a report the system hangs up and refreezes on me.

Pros

This software is very user-friendly and able to customize the layout to best fit your work scene. It is very helpful to navigate through the software.

This will be nice to pin the comments in the background of the main screen, or to pin it to the side with the calendar view,remarks,...etc.

It would be very helpful to choose if we want to add our own comments to keep on the side task bar. (For example, if i wanted to leave a "post it" or "comment" in Chempax to remind me to create sales orders once the allocation is complete.) This will be nice to pin the comments in the background of the main screen, or to pin it to the side with the calendar view,remarks,...etc.
