Once you know how to navigate through Chempax it's a very useful product. It's capable of holding a wide variety of useful information.

I do not like how you have to go into different transactions in order to print the sales order, bill of lading and work order. It would be much easier if we could print these from one place.

Recommendations

Before reviewing this product make sure you have used it for at least a month.

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.

You can't duplicate more than once - if you could have the opportunity to choose more than one it would save even more time.

Likes Least

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.

Recommendations

If you have a smaller operation, this is perfect to run your chemical distribution business.

It is very helpful to navigate through the software.

When choosing between the Main Menu tabs, the windows will minimize automatically. This makes progress difficult when we have to reopen window to use each time.

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.

This product is very useful in the chemical industry. We enter everything in it from when the order comes in and helps all the way until the product is gone. We can use this product for inventory, accounting, and many other purposes. This system also helps us with our end of month inventory and our customers love it.

Even for somebody with just basic computer knowledge it is pretty simple and easy to use.

Likes Least

When you input some info by mistake such as the wrong date you cannot automatically delete the entry. It just stays there until an administrator fixes it.

Recommendations

Evaluate the ease of use on people not highly experienced with computers to get an honest take on how fast somebody can pick up on using it.
