You want to know one of the most common challenges companies are facing today?  

Disjointed software integration.  

Unfortunately, not all applications are connected with each other, and as some teams know, this results in data being siloed, slipping through the cracks, insights not being shared, and loads of more problems piled on teams.  

The goal is to find the perfect software integration. In this case, it’s QuickBooks and Fishbowl

Manufacturing & assemblies

Fishbowl will adjust product quantities and consumption as they are impacted by incoming sales orders, whereas QuickBooks will only consume the inventory. Fishbowl also allows for single and multi-level bill of materials. 

Lastly, Fishbowl can help you predict immediate and future needs, built off historical data and consumption, which will give you the ability to make better business decisions now.  


Fishbowl allows you to set user permissions for specific reports and access to location groups. You can also give administrators the ability to assign users to work orders. When coupling Fishbowl and QuickBooks, your warehouse staff can utilize Fishbowl, while minimizing users in your accounting platform within QuickBooks.  

Fishbowl Advanced Mobile

In Fishbowl, you can take care of sales orders, packing, shipping, receiving, and cycle counting.  You have access to additional functions from a mobile device, making your workflows more efficient, like scanning lot numbers and location tags.  

Individually, Fishbowl and QuickBooks can impact your business in positive ways. When integrated together, businesses can unlock a new level of productivity and accuracy, skyrocketing your business operations and output to stay ahead of the competition.
