Fishbowl Inventory helps businesses in many industries cut costs and reach their potential through better inventory management. These industries include manufacturing, ecommerce, wholesale, retail and food production.
Right now we’re going to focus on how food producers benefit from food inventory software. Specifically, here are three case studies that show how food producers used Fishbowl Inventory to overcome different challenges:
1. Explosive growth at Chung’s Gourmet Foods. Chung’s Gourmet Foods had the enviable problem of growing so rapidly it was barely able to keep up with production.
Its old inventory management system had worked well when the Houston-based company was in its formative stages, but as it grew into a medium-sized company it needed a powerful inventory management solution. Enter Fishbowl Inventory.
Chung’s Gourmet Foods officials started using Fishbowl and quickly started saving money. They improved their inventory turnover ratio and reduced the number of products that passed their expiration dates before being sold. They also found ways to streamline the food-production process.
2. Stockouts at Prince Michel Vineyard & Winery. Prince Michel Vineyard & Winery, one of the most successful winemakers in Virginia, faced the problem of sometimes not having enough inventory to meet demand. Its inventory management system wasn’t up to the task.
Thankfully, the company found Fishbowl Inventory and it quickly got a handle on its inventory levels. With Fishbowl, Prince Michel was able to find the right balance between too much and too little inventory.
In previous years, the company’s customers had complained about product stockouts, but after the company started using Fishbowl, those complaints were virtually eliminated.
3. Multiple locations at Pacific Valley Dairy. Pacific Valley Dairy is an established ice-cream producer that distributes its delicious products to 400 locations in the Midwest.
To handle this huge distribution network, the company turned to Fishbowl Inventory. Fishbowl has excellent tools for handling transfers of inventory between multiple locations. The company is pleased with how a combination of Fishbowl and QuickBooks has made its job easier.
