Pros:

-Creating multiple Purchase orders from one screen - Inventory management - Multiple locations - Barcoding - Reports - Stocktake - Despatch sales orders - Can be Customized based on business requirements

Cons:

- Would be great if Integrations with E-commerce platforms are ready and available to connect ( integrations are still possible but will be a custom job)

Alternatives Considered: CartonCloud, NetSuite, Xero and Unleashed

Datapel WMS Review

4.0 4 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

Alternatives Considered: 3PL Warehouse Manager

Reasons for Choosing Datapel WMS: We went from a 3pl service provider to having to manage our own stock.

Reasons for Switching to Datapel WMS: For it's ability to integrate with MYOB at a competitive price.

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 WMS Solution for complex Retail Business

5.0 4 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.

Alternatives Considered: MYOB Advanced Business

Reasons for Choosing Datapel WMS: Lack of support. Cost for customisation and support was excessive.

Switched From: Act!

Reasons for Switching to Datapel WMS: Versatility and price.

Retail Stock Control

4.0 4 years ago

Pros:

We appreciated the ability for the package to integrate seamlessly with our MYOB Accounting software.

Cons:

Would be nice if WMS could integrate with our Wordpress online shopping for receiving and processing orders.

Alternatives Considered: MYOB Advanced Business

Reasons for Choosing Datapel WMS: Act were moving to cloud based, which would dramatically increase costs, and force us to move into Office 365.

Switched From: Act!

Reasons for Switching to Datapel WMS: Initial outlay was less for WMS, and due to direct integration with MYOB Accountright, the learning curve for staff was much less.
