It Doesn't Get Any Worse Than This

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 Review

Pros

Options are clearly dictated. A good product and user-friendly. It covers all the necessary requirement for a task.

Cons

A little overwhelming as it looks. It lags when you open multiple tasks but not that quite disturbing.

Okay Product

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Chempax is all you need

Pros

I like the ease of use, user interface, and fluidity of the program

What is not to like? Everything about Chempax will have you speechless. Push this program to its limits, and it will still fight for more.

Chempax is the way to go.

Pros

It is convenience to use with little errors. It is not as slow as SAP, which is great.

Cons

Sometimes, there's error with printing out the BOL and COA. This is what I don't like about this product.

Chempax review

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.

Many features to complete job duties.

Pros

The option of copying an order - saves time when processing multiple orders with the some of the same information.

Cons

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

I am an end user who looks at data reporting only.

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.

Review for Chempax Software

Pros

This software is very user-friendly and able to customize the layout to best fit your work scene.
It is very helpful to navigate through the software.

Cons

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.

Third Coast Terminals Perks

Pros

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.

Cons

For someone who has never used this product ever could be a little confused in the beginning but with practice, it gets easier. This product is very useful and helps locate information you need to be successful.
