ALCHEMEX provides reporting solutions aimed at small to medium-sized businesses that are looking for an easy-to-use but powerful business intelligence solution. Alchemex Smart Reporting interacts seamlessly with a company’s accounting or ERP system by connecting automatically to the data source and delivers real-time financial and business management reports in Excel. This functionality fills the gap that most accounting applications cannot – the extraction of secure source data into a pre-formatted Excel report automatically and on demand – thus eliminating manual report preparation and repetitive data extracts. Users can then view, manipulate, analyze and distribute the trusted information in the familiar environment of Excel.
Just wanted to add that using an accounting software requires training, and a good accounting software should be designed with the customer in mind meaning that it should be simple yet detailed enough to cover all areas of operations in a normal office or for the sector it covers… now i have worked with sage and many other products and quite frankly sage 50 is in its death bed, simply because it has failed to adapt… no great improvements or advancements in all its versions, does not go out of its way to be a solution, it was a great software but times have changed and unfortunately sage 50 is not changing with the times, Sage the company has acquired software solutions like , Pastel evolution (formally brilliant systems ) and now is hyping this software to be a mid market ERP Software what a con !!!! simple because it is not an erp , pastel evolution bundles, resolve s crm and alchemex bi which sage bought into pastel evolution ( note sage has integrated alchemex into all its product tiers ) these are good briilliant software but pastel evolution has nothing to offer… cannot compare to many top tier erp softwares, it has no workflow to speak off order entry to goods receipt or dispatch is a one step simple process, its chart of accounts is not segmented until you fork additional $$ to get the segmented chart of accounts, inventory processing is to over hyped and does not compare to erps, no replenishment rules, no vendor tracking no substitute or accessory items, no warranty tracking, no lot tracking using Fifo etc , simply pu no where near an erp list of capabilities, and to further the con, this company now bundles, what it calles addon functionality to the software ( evolution Core ) so for additional $$ you can get advanced procurement…really , it sales you the procurement module ( basically a resolve notification procedure ) and then ask for additional $$ for advanced procurement , they continue to insult our intelligence wtih modules like voucher entry , mult-
warehousing, cash manager, etc… all asking for additional $$$ my question is it possible to label a software an erp , just because of marketing hype, not true functionality , for instance the mutlwarehousing module priced at 1000+ $$$ does not offer bin tracking or offer options for puttaways etc, let me ask how do you cancel an order in pastel evolution … how then do you track your cancelled orders,…. is it possible to track order history with all documents associated with that order in one window, … if not from this one example how then do you call pastel evolution an erp… it does not offer collaboration period ….
