Easy inventory system to use

2020-09-14

Initially we had no inventory management and this software is great for that

Pros

Product is user friendly, has great reporting capabilities and inventory management is spot on.

Better CRM integration or capabilities, less reliant on accounting systems for data.

Datapel WMS Review

2020-10-07

It has given us the ability to integrate MYOB with a Warehouse Management System.

Pros

- Easy to use once you understand the system - It gives us the ability to integrate MYOB with a Warehouse Management System. - Integration between cloud based and server based applications.

Cons

Specifically we are unable to access important information such as customer reports, item list and New Sales Order at the same time. - Stock transfers are convoluted, and we are only able to do 1 item at a time. - Special pricing doesn't show the profit margin per line. - When confirming sales or purchases there should be an option to email reports.

Very handy and easy to use product - difficult to gain support when the rare issues arise

2021-08-24

Need to wait for replies to emails (time-zone differences) and if I call the help-line, I am unable to understand them and feel they cannot understand me - language barriers.

Pros

Good functionality and simple to use - great for our inventory management

Cons

Software itself is fine - struggling with Customer support

Review

2020-10-13

We find response to our queries is extremely slow. Queries get passed from one person to another and requires constant follow-up by us to resolve any issues.

Pros

Accurate tracking of inventory

Cons

Reporting options could be better Very limited features for recording information although we do have an earlier version of Datapel so maybe it has improved

Response from datapel


Hi Jodie,

Thanks for your review - you are correct - the version you are on is a little old and we are not able to help customers using versions of our system connecting to unsupported Accounting Software - which have been out of cycle for a few years now.

We have put through a few requests for your system to be upgraded - but will try contact your team again ASAP to see if we can connect with the right person to get you on the latest and greatest WMS edition.

We will be in touch soon...

Satisfaction with using Datapel is quite high

2020-09-08

When we have had issues with the system, as soon as we log a complaint datapel is able to resolve it in a timely and efficient manner. They were always very attentive to our requests and problems. Overall WMS is a great system and have enjoyed using it

Pros

I use the reporting features of it and the reports are very useful for what I need to use it as I need to prepare sales reports to my team and the figures are picked up quite well.

Cons

Integration is very good with MYOB but we have had a couple of hick ups in the last couple of years but data pel was able to resolve it very quickly when the system was not interfacing with our accounting software

Exactly what we needed

2021-02-02

They arrived on the day of our first pack off, and be it only in a skeleton fashion - everything worked and we could collect and send the data required!

Pros

Firstly we needed the easy integration with our Financial system, Secondly we had some unique requirments in terms of capturing and sending all the Xml data of site daily. Thirdly it has the scope for us to expand and utilise more functions interms of MRP.

Cons

Dash board is not updating very well and would be nice if i could adapt this to something more meaningfull

Great support from implementation to ad hoc assitance required

2020-10-02

Good

Pros

It is easy to use. When we faced problem occasionally, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] from Seasoft is very quick to attend to our needs.

Cons

1) For some transactions, there are discrepancies in the tax amount when they are replicated to MYOB. 2) Sales Reconciliation has to be performed daily to identify the above discrepancies to correct them in MYOB, but the Sales Reconciliation Report "MYOB Invoices NOT reconciled with WMS Sales" takes a long time to complete even when it is just for 1 day sales. 3) Under Stock Adjustment, after the list of items is selected and the quantities and batch numbers have been keyed in, at this point if you want to add another item, you will have to go back to the selection list but in doing so, all the quantities and batch numbers previously entered will be gone. 4) Credit Note: After credit note has been created under "Return Status" before entry of batch number, if you realised that there errors and you want to make any amendments at all, even in just a description like reference number, the area under discount will have strange percentage appearing, even though the total value is correct.

Datapel WMS Review

2020-03-09

The remote service was originally most helpful when we could speak with people online. Not so easy when this service was suspended and one had to wait for email response.

Pros

Integration with our business was not as easy as I had hoped.

Cons

The integration with myob always created inventory issues.

Strong Inventory Features with eCommerce and Shipping Adapters

2020-09-18

Our experience working with Datapel has been absolutely first class, We have been working with them for over 10 years, they continue to add value every year.

Pros

The ability for us to plug in our web stores and mobile sales systems has been fantastic, now we can automate our entire process from order to printing of shipping labels.

Cons

In reality there is not much at all that we don't like about Datapel WMS Its such a comprehensive WMS and dose its job so well that its the only piece of software that we haven't changed in the last 2 years of our cloud first digital transformation of the business.

Datapel WMS Solution for complex Retail Business

2020-09-10

Stock visibility was our biggest challenge. We are still learning and our business is quite complex. WMS has enabled us a level of visibility that we have never had before.

Pros

It also integrates into our current financial systems as has room to grow as the business grows.

Cons

There is really nothing I can think of that is missing. Our experience so far has allowed us to add customised features as needed to suit our needs.

Satisfied

2020-08-18

Pros

The software is really easy to use and navigate.

Cons

The only down side is that while invoices and purchases are sent to accounting software it locks other users from ordering, picking and packing. The process is slow but we also realise that there will be room for improvement once we switch to online versions.
