What users say

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

New Chempax

Reviewed 3 years ago

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

The overall software package is good for a small to medium size company. It handles about 80% of our day to day manufacturing processes. Everything from the formulation to the final invoice and even shipping can be done in the software. Not all of it is done well, but it can be done.

Cons

Up till now the primary complaint has been that Datacor has not updated their underlying database for 10 years (not even a patch). However, that in the last year or so they have unilaterally decided that "old" licensing agreements are no longer valid because of all the features they have added over the years and have moved customers to "new" licensing. This includes both cutting user licenses from 400 to 20 "equivalent new licenses" as well as doubling or even tripling the cost of those "new" licenses. This is all to support "new products" that have not come out though they were slated to be released a year ago. Unless you like a company that has no regard for signed agreements, I would strongly recommend you choose another product.

Ricca Product Management user view

Reviewed 3 months ago
Pros

I think one of the most useful features is the data audit trailing. I also find that the integration with other software is great like Datacor's CRM.

Cons

I feel like the pricing is slightly clunky. Part of it is due to the nature of our company and the way we use the pricing, but it makes it hard to find all pricing in one place no matter what type it is. Having separate price books makes culminating pricing slightly cumbersome. I also find the quoting system to be slightly clunky. Again part of it is because of the way we use the pricing feature, but I think there are ways to improve it.

Very Good ERP software that is easy to work with.

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

It is very easy to get modifications done to suit the way you do business. If you have good knowledge about Access Databases then it is very easy to add things to the system without having to use the vendor. There is a yearly conference with open forums and training classes, where Datacor teach how to make changes to the software and also listen to the customers requests for features. Updates and added features are released on almost a weekly basis.

Cons

The licenses are expensive and managing licenses are done per machine and not per user.

All in one ERP system

Reviewed 4 months ago

We love the software and the continuous improvements. The support that is given when we have issues has been outstanding.

Pros

It is one system that does everything we need to successfully run our business. We are both a manufacturer and distributor and the system handles both.

Cons

We are not fully utilizing the software but, have every intention of fully implementing all the optional features in the future. The cost of the optional features is the only thing delaying our implementation.

It Doesn't Get Any Worse Than This

Reviewed 4 years ago

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.

Vendor response

Thank you for taking the time to voice your unsatisfactory experience with our software. We are so sorry your experience has been negative thus far. Our #1 goal is the total satisfaction of our customers and to make their jobs easier, not harder. We¿d really appreciate the opportunity to further discuss your concerns and how we can resolve them together.

Great tool for a small to medium size company

Reviewed 2 years ago

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

Pros

The software is easy to set up and use. 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.

Best ERP software for the price. Designed for both small and large companies.

Great software. Flexable. Can create your own reports and queries without any fears that the next release will cause them to stop working. Tech support group knows their product.

None to speak of.
