Are you looking for inventory management software that works with your ecommerce platform?
When you’re using state-of-the-art technology to sell products, it’s important to have an equally advanced inventory management system in place that can keep up with your customers’ demands. Otherwise, you could run into serious supply issues.
Here are some of the benefits of using inventory management software in your ecommerce business.
Soon after an order comes in, your software should update your inventory records to note that the products being sold are no longer available for other orders. It should also automatically tell your accounting software, such as QuickBooks, to make corresponding changes to your financial records. No more manual data entry.
Many ecommerce companies drop ship products to customers to keep costs down and save on warehouse space. You can speed up the process of getting products to your customers if you have inventory management software that goes to work as soon as an order comes in – generating sales orders, notifying carriers about shipment details, and emailing customers with the estimated time of arrival for their packages.

FISHBOWL’S ECOMMERCE SUCCESS STORIES
We often get asked if Fishbowl Manufacturing and Fishbowl Warehouse work well for ecommerce companies. Fishbowl is well known for providing excellent inventory control software for a variety of business types, particularly manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers.
But what about the more tech-savvy segments of the economy? The answer is a resounding YES!
Here are a couple of case studies that show how Fishbowl has positively affected the fortunes of ecommerce companies:
The Mending Shed has been a brick-and-mortar business since 1971, but they added a website several years ago, which allows them to serve even more customers. But as the company expanded online, they started having trouble keeping enough items in stock and they discovered that their picking and order management processes were too slow to keep up with demand.
With Fishbowl’s help, they turned things around. Now, they’re doing a much better job keeping inventory levels balanced, and customers can even see which parts are in stock on their website. They also slashed the amount of time employees had to spend doing the same amount of work processing orders and picking parts off the shelf.
FilterFiller.com helps homeowners replace the air filters in their air conditioning units on a regular basis. It can be difficult to try to remember the last time you replaced your filter, so FilterFiller.com developed an ingenious system to simply send people a new filter when it’s time to replace their old one. No more fuss or worry.
FilterFiller.com started using Fishbowl to keep track of its more than 200 SKUs and speed up the process of picking, packing, and shipping filters to customers in a timely manner. Their shopping cart, Magento, integrates with Fishbowl, so when an order comes in, it alerts Fishbowl to start prepping a sales order and telling employees where to find the right filter to fill that order.
These are just two of the many ecommerce businesses that have enjoyed positive results by using Fishbowl Manufacturing and Fishbowl Warehouse. Schedule an inventory software demo today to see for yourself what Fishbowl can do for your company.
