  • We are a small parts supply business that inventories a large amount of parts with very similar part numbers. We used Quickbooks as our software for a few years and had issues with inventory control. We switched to Fishbowl as our inventory control software around 2 years ago. The support from Fishbowl during the initial install and startup was excellent. They have one of the best support teams I have found anywhere. Since changing over to Fishbowl we have corrected our inventory and been able to keep it accurate. It turned out to be an excellent addition for our company.

    Fishbowl is an excellent tool for users whose business depends on QuickBooks for accounting but lack inventory management software. This is because Fishbowl integrates very well with QuickBooks, and, therefore, allows users to carry out their back office accounts with QuickBooks, and also handle inventory management, quotations, materials procurement, and many other tasks. Fishbowl is also a good solution for any other users who would want to track their assets, carry out materials requirement planning and ultimately handle their inventory. Fishbowl has numerous useful features. First of all, its integration with QuickBooks is handled from the ground up, which means that it was intended to work hand-in-hand with QuickBooks throughout development. This is very different than simply coding software to output in a particular format that is accepted by a third party application, which is the case in most software tools that boast integration with other products. Regarding features, Fishbowl is not only an inventory management solution but can also handle asset management, which is important for manufacturers who use and own a lot of equipment. It can also handle the procurement and management of raw materials, which can be a daunting task for manufacturers who do not manage this through software since some products may require hundreds of raw materials. Besides purchases and procurement, Fishbowl can also handle the sales side of things, with the ability to create orders and generate quotations. It can also be used on both Windows and Mac, which is good for offices running on varied platforms, which is often the case in large factories. Regarding disadvantages, there are not many as Fishbowl is a great tool. One of the only issues is that creating custom reports is not an easy task. Besides this, while QuickBooks integration is very powerful, it can be a cumbersome task to get Fishbowl working with a specific QuickBooks account.

    Pros :

    • Integrates with QuickBooks from the ground up.
    • Handles equipment management.
    • Handles manufacturing requirements planning.
    • Detailed inventory control.
    • Multi-platform support including Windows and Mac.
    • Can manage raw materials.
    • Takes care of materials procurement.
    • Can be used to generate quotations and orders.

    Cons :

    • Can be expensive for large amounts of users.
    • Limited custom reporting options.
    • Setting up integration with a particular QuickBooks account can be cumbersome.
