Pros: The software is extremely configurable so the user can leverage whatever is needed from it. We are able to use it to help schedule PM's since it can be used to filter due dates in a number of ways.
We now have several sites that have adopted it. Everyone is impressed with the time that can be saved in the field by setting up the calibration procedure in the software and then executing in the field with the calibrator.
It is always a good thing to be ready for a visit from an inspector. The software generates nice calibration certificates which can be configured to display what you need. They can be saved off-line if needed by management.
User management can be configured to limit access so a user can only access data for their site. Permissions can be managed to limit a users ability to edit certain parameters, etc.
Customer support is second to none. We installed our software on a corporate server. Beamex's IT supported our IT personnel to overcome a few obstacles. It is because of that we now have a robust, dependable application with which we have had zero issues.

Cons: For all of it's positives, there are very few negatives I've encountered.
User management could be enhanced so combine accessibility with permissions so a user has different permissions depending on what site he is accessing.
I would like to see a way to edit a field across a range of instruments (positions) instead of having to edit each one individually.
These are really wishes for the next software revision more than negatives. It's a dependable and comprehensive calibration management solution.

Pros: *Great customer support- I generally receive a reply within a few hours, considering that they are in Finland and I am in Australia! So far all issues have been resolved within a day or Two.
*The built in help is very comprehensive and easy to use.
*"Explorer" style interface makes operation easy and familiar.
*I'm finding more functions and features everytime I use CMX.
*You can enter as much or as little data/detail as you want.
*It reflects well on our Instruments Dept- professional looking calibration reports with graphs, logos, exact errors/times/temps etc.

Cons: *We have had instances where our whole team has been unable to access the database for days at a time due to version discrepancies and computer failures.
*Our corporate IT Dept struggle to grasp its concept.
*Certificates and reports are not easily personalised/customised and not to very much extent.

Pros: You do not have to hit the exact value: eg 25%, 50%, 75% or 100%. Beamex calculates the value itself.

Cons: Very hard to calibrate at zero when we use "calibration of read value". There will be a mistake in the calibration certificate

Pros: 1. When calibrate, it calculate the error it selves.
2. You dont have to hit the exact point, ex. 25%.

Cons: When calibrate (out of reading), flow (square root) the calibration will fail in zero almost every time.

Overall: Easy to use.

Pros: Easy to use. Database is easily accessible and easy to add to. I have not used anything like it in the past and to be honest I would not want to use another system.

Cons: Nothing much you can do but our system restricts us from adding software to our computers so we have to liaise with our IT Department to add third party software.

Pros: When the positions have been entered, it is easy to use, highly automated.
It gives a good overview

Cons: We get equipment calibrated externally and we need an option to only approve the calibration / certificate, maybe a light version. Node will not be marked red when there is something to be calibrated. Very locked database when there can only be one user per. License at a time, we could use that several could have read permissions at the same time. Our requirements for the Error Calculation Method may be "greater than" a value and this option is missing. The screen setup changes constantly. Once you have made a change and save, you will get out of position and it will be found again if multiple changes are to be made. Not possible to fill in calibration strategy during procedure creation.

Pros: We used QD3 before CMX, so I`m, basically comparing expiriences. I like capabilities, number of tag numbers we can have in database and number of instruments under one TAG number.

Cons: We have five factories in our company and they all have many TAG numbers with same name. CMX doesn`t support two same Tag numbers (PS-1 for instance). Solution I got from support to put some charcters to differ TAGs (like _-. etc.) is not acceptable.
Customization of reports is not user frendly at all. We spent hours trying to make our own report and still we got only a fragment covered.

CMX is the best tools to make a correct calibration managment

Pros: Although we're in the early stages of implementing documenting calibration systems, we can see CMX is easy to use with the features and functions we require. We are learning how this can be integrated with our other maintenance management systems and hope to improve our calibration procedures in line with best practice.

Cons: No issues identified thus far, although we're yet to prove how CMX can be integrated with our other maintenance management systems and expect this will present more issues than a standalone installation.

Overall: Consistent, paperless reporting!

A good program that suits us well.

Comments: We have been running CMX an its predecessor QM6 in Pharma industry since 1998. We have centralized application that is in use on several different plant sites. CMX can provide reliable calibration database with history functions, and therefore it´s a great tool to improve the efficiency of calibration functions. And of course it was a huge improvement when it was possible to turn to paperless calibration documentation with CMX. It´s easy to use and maintain, and product support from vendor is first class. It´s versatile and can be customized for various different measurements, also for weighing instruments with USP and other requirements.

Calibration with ROI

Comments: We originally installed CMX as stand-alone calibration software. The CMX software coupled with the Beamex process calibrators provide a high quality means to document and track critical calibrations. The implementation of the CMX software in conjunction with Beamex calibrators is a significant investment so ROI is critical. We recently completed a project that integrated the CMX software with our Maximo work management system. Currently our instrument techs do not touch Maximo through the entire work order life cycle. This process saves approximately 30 minutes per calibration and provides instant ROI. This system is giving back time to the end users. Great product!
Although technical support was outstanding, very little was needed.

Comments: The plant received the CMX about a year ago Nov. 4th 2014 and since then our shop has grown to love and appreciate the convenience of the software. The ease of use is helpful seeing that we were able to eliminate most of our hard copy calibration sheets. Planning has become simpler since our routes are loadable directly from the database. Preserving calibration information is important for strategic planning, with the software we are able to achieve this goal.

Comments: We selected CMX several years ago for customer calibration services performed in the field on site at customer facilities on a variety of instrumentation & control systems. Our decision has resulted in the ability to test devices utilizing consistent methods regardless of individual performing tasks. This in turn has resulted in repeat and new business. Through the use of documenting process calibrators in conjunction with CMX software our customers have realized savings in O+M costs. Calibration records are easily retrieved from CMX whenever required. Cost has been a slight drawback for our organization where multiple software licenses were and are required in order to fully equip individuals with CMX PRO on individual laptops that are in use at multiple sites simultaneously on any given day. Technical support provided by vendor is excellent. CMX is very easy to use and easily learned by those having little or no experience with calibration software. CMX is modular, which enabled Spectra Automation to purchase immediate required functionality up front, while adding required additional functionality at a later date suited to our budget.
