Datapel WMS Review

4,0 3 years ago

Comments: 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:

- Unable to have multiple windows open at the same time. 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. It would be handy if there was a script to open the email program, not just composing an email that sit in the outbox until the email program is manually opened. - It would be great if there was more specific information on customers. i.e list of lines a customer purchases with the last time they ordered them, last purchase price and product margin; customer gp for the last 3 months - Would be good if it had an integrated email client

Thanks for your feedback here - we're excited to share that the issues you raised have an existing simple solution as below... Multiple Windows - Being a web app you pop up each form and continue to select information as required then return back to your original inquiry form. Stock Transfers - Allows for multiple stock lines including full pallets, in bulk to any bin and any warehouse location. Profit Margins - Can be added for individual products at the time of sale. This feature can be toggled on/off. Integrated Email Client - Allows users to send Sales Invoices and Purchase Orders, via email, to any contact with the click of a button. Purchase History - When creating a new Sales Order, right click on a sales line to see the customers last purchases (max of 3) and the price they paid. Thanks again for your feedback and apologies for the belated public reply. Glad to see your still with us and a growing user! We appreciate your support of our solution and services.

Comments: 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:

Easy to raise POs and sales orders. 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

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...

Datapel has completely streamlined our business processes

4,0 4 months ago

Pros:

The main reason we chose Datapel was due to it's integration with MYOB. Datapel manages all of the purchase order and sales order generation and then transfers the data automatically to MYOB. It is great for managing these processes and for keeping track of inventory and is extremely user friendly. The implementation process was very smooth and we didn't have any business down time. What we didn't expect was the massive impact that the system has had across all of our business processes and productivity. Datapel can be customised to meet the particular needs of any business. For example, we are a manufacturing company that exports globally and our customers all have different documentation and labelling requirements. The system can be designed to automatically generate different documents for different customers. There are so many other ways that the system has been customized to meet our specific needs.The feature that has had the biggest impact on our business is the ability to export information from the database to generate customized business specific reporting. We work regularly with a Datapel consultant to design reports that otherwise would have to be prepared manually. For example if we need to send a report to Head office regularly in a specific format, we can set the report up in excel and link the database to that report template to auto-populate.

Cons:

The only thing that we have found difficult is that Datapel automatically assigns a work order reference in the assemblies module, and there is no ability to change it to your own reference.

We're thrilled to hear about your positive experience with Datapel! It's fantastic that Datapel's integration with MYOB has streamlined your business processes so effectively. The seamless handling of purchase orders and sales order generation, along with the automatic data transfer to MYOB, is indeed a great convenience. It's particularly noteworthy that Datapel's adaptability has allowed your manufacturing company to cater to the diverse needs of your global customer base, especially in terms of documentation and labelling requirements. The ability to generate customised reports from the database has had a significant impact on your productivity. We appreciate your feedback regarding the work order reference in the assemblies module. Your input is valuable to us as we continually work to improve our services. Thank you for choosing Datapel, and we're delighted to have contributed to streamlining your business processes. If you ever have further suggestions or questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Datapel WMS Solution for complex Retail Business

5,0 3 years ago

Comments: 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:

The ability for the business using WMS to be able to track every piece of stock across multiple sites as well as track both agency and retail quotations and orders. WMS is a solution that saved the organisation from spending a six figure sum for a custom package. 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.
