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.

Great tool for a small to medium size company

2020-11-05

This is a great tool for small and medium sized companies at a reasonable price.

Pros

The new functionalities are rolled out to the customers at no extra costs periodically.

Cons

The customer service is great, but only available based on eastern time hours. The inventory management tools are not very user friendly and may take some time to get used to.

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.

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.

Cons

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

New Chempax

2020-02-19

We have used Chempax for about 20 years. Overall the company has not been bad, but they have been unfair on licensing enough times that I'm more than tired of it. One time we mistakenly violated our agreement and they locked us out of our system rather than informing us of the issue and giving us an opportunity to fix it.

Pros

Everything from the formulation to the final invoice and even shipping can be done in the software.

Cons

Up till now the primary complaint has been that Datacor has not updated their underlying database for 10 years (not even a patch).

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.

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.
