We have been using Chempax for over 15 years and continue to be very happy with it. The best part of Chempax is that they keep investing in the product. There are new releases coming our on a regular basis as they continue to add new functionality and integrate new technology. Datacor is in the process of a generational transition. They have hired a great new management team to keep the company and the product stable for decades to come. As a customer, we are thrilled to see this stability.
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).
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.
Customer Service is great and the support group are extremely knowledgeable about their software and its functionality. Our implementation was very successful.
Chempax offers a complete solution to your chemical accounting needs. The software is specific to the Chemical Industry thus requiring less customization. Most of the features we desired in an Accounting software was already available. One of my favorite features is the Batch Manufacturing module with the Quality Control features. We eliminated hand written QC manufacturing logs.
There is nothing that I don't like about the Chempax software. It was the best software purchase we ever made.
this software is very forgiving. Mistakes are easy to correct where with our previous software, not easy and very confusing. We have very good response to any questions about the software and help is there when we need it.
There are some issues being talked about....and I believe these will be discussed at the next conference. I do accounts payable and I don't have any issues, other departments may have some with the work they do.
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.
The licenses are expensive and managing licenses are done per machine and not per user.
It's easy to learn and self explanatory. However, I wish there was a manual or classes my staff and I could set up for training.
When searching lots numbers (batches), I would like to see which lot is located to each order in the "Products" tab (near enterprise).
