To keep track of your transistors, diodes, circuits, and other electronics, it helps to have an inventory management system in place. Fishbowl gives you the power to control your operations by using multistage work orders and bills of materials, serial numbers, PDFs attached to sales orders and purchase orders, and kits, among many other inventory management features.
Manufacturing – Fishbowl has the ability to add notes, instructions, and labor costs to work orders. You can also perform available-to-build calculations to make sure you have enough materials on hand to complete manufacturing jobs.
Serial Numbers – To separate all of your items and track them across multiple locations, you can attach serial numbers to them.
Staging – Electronics often require many manufacturing steps that must be done in the right order. Sub-assemblies allow you to create a bill of materials for each stage of production.
QuickBooks Integration – You’re in luck if you use QuickBooks because Fishbowl integrates seamlessly with it to eliminate double data entry and discrepancies between the two solutions.
Attach PDFs to Orders via Dropbox – Fishbowl uses Dropbox to allow PDFs to be attached to sales orders and purchase orders. That way, you can include important information that goes beyond simple notes and instructions.
Kits – The kitting feature lets you group together several products under one header. This makes it quicker to add items to sales orders and offer price discounts to specific customers.
Scanning – The Fishbowl Go app lets you use your smartphone or tablet as a barcode scanner. Print barcode labels to attach to items and shelves and then scan them to pick, transfer, and reorder items.
