Green means go, yellow means caution, and red means stop. That’s true in traffic flow – and now it’s true in order management, too.
When fulfilling orders, it’s really helpful to know if you have enough inventory on hand to actually fill the orders you receive. That’s why Fishbowl 2015 has a fantastic new feature that lets you pick orders… in color!
Instead of seeing a screen full of black-and white orders, Fishbowl now shows them in three colors: green, yellow and red. And each color means something very important:
Green: There is enough inventory currently in stock to fully pick the order.
Yellow: There is at least one item that is not adequately stocked to cover the amount needed for the order.
Red: There is not enough inventory in stock to cover any of the items in the order.
Moving forward, you can now pick orders faster and with greater confidence. You won’t have to guess about whether or not you’ll have enough parts and products to fulfill orders. You’ll instantly know just by looking at your screen.
