Datapel vs Dear Systems

In your business, WMS functionality isn’t “optional”, is it? Choose a system where best practice WMS is part of the standard feature set – not an expensive addition. Datapel delivers best practice inventory selection, stock tracking, and pick face management. Get integrated Point of Sale users for the same cost as regular additional users. No premiums.

We’ve spent over 20 years working with hundreds of wholesalers and manufacturers to optimise order management, fulfilment, and the delivery processes. Choose the software designed for warehousing.

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 and has room to grow as the business grows.
