Food & Beverage Inventory Management
Fishbowl is a buffet of inventory management features for the Food & Beverage industry
Fishbowl brings together all the necessary ingredients for good inventory control: Material Expiration Tracking, Batch Processes, and fully- customizable Bill of Materials, all with the functionality to stay current on your unique FDA requirements.
Use features like:
Functionality for FDA Compliance – Fishbowl provides your business the tools you need to meet your requirements. Audits, Lot and Serial Traceability, Expiration Tracking, Handling Yields, and More.
Inventory Tracking by Expiration Date and Lot Number – Expiration dates and lot numbers are two of the most important inventory tracking criteria food companies use. And you will find these in Fishbowl. Not only does this help minimize food waste, but also maximizes the use of raw materials.
Manufacturing – Works orders are available for many types of manufacturing jobs, such as assembly, disassembly, repair, replacement, and custom. You can also add instructions and notes to work orders.
Unit-of-Measure Conversions – You can create any unit of measure you like and convert it into any other one. For example, how much flour, sugar, and butter does it take to make a batch of cookies? Making these unit-of-measure conversions helps you know how many ingredients you need ahead of time.
Scrapping Inventory – Some materials on a bill of materials have to be scrapped for one reason or another, and Fishbowl gives you the option to do that. The benefit of this step is it reduces your overall food cost and streamlines your purchase order for food inventory.
Pick, Pack, and Ship – Use barcode scanners and other automated tools to pick, pack, and ship goods to customers faster than you could with a manual process.
Custom Reporting – If you don’t see the exact report you’re looking for in Fishbowl, you can request a custom one that will work best for the way you do business.
Scanning – Our restaurant inventory management software 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.
