For years, Fishbowl has been the No. 1 manufacturing and warehouse management solution for QuickBooks users. Now we can add to that impressive accomplishment the fact that Fishbowl also integrates with Xero, an online accounting solution.
Xero is especially popular among small businesses because of its intuitive interface and feature set. And now if you use Xero you can connect it with Fishbowl’s manufacturing or warehouse management software to create one giant business solution.
The following is a sample of the features and benefits of Fishbowl’s Xero integration:
Easy Setup – Fishbowl’s integration with Xero has been tested and put through the ringer by the good folks at Xero. It’s easy to set up a connection between your accounting and inventory records, meaning that Fishbowl users can instantly update accounting records and create new general ledger accounts from Fishbowl.
Order Fulfillment – Fishbowl lets users create and process sales orders and do all of their picking, packing, and shipping, and at the same time it tells Xero to update its inventory assets, costs of goods sold, and income. Thus, whenever something is changed in inventory, it is also recorded as an accounting adjustment.
Accepting Payments – When you receive payments from customers in Fishbowl, they get entered into Xero. Xero also accepts payments online or by other means.
Purchase Orders – When a purchase order is entered into Fishbowl, the software quickly alerts Xero to update its accounting entries.
Contact Information – When a new customer or supplier is added to Fishbowl, their contact information also gets added to Xero.
Inventory Adjustments – When you scrap unusable inventory, perform cycle counts, or make other inventory adjustments in Fishbowl, they will be sent to Xero, as well. You’re probably noticing a pattern by now. Fishbowl’s Xero integration means that changes made in Fishbowl affect Xero.
Work Orders – When a work order is finished in Fishbowl Manufacturing, the general ledger in Xero is automatically updated. This saves manufacturers a step and makes sure manufacturing adjustments are reflected in both accounting and inventory systems.
Xero is available on PCs, Macs, and mobile devices. It has all the accounting features a growing business needs, and it is perfectly complemented by Fishbowl’s advanced inventory management features.
