Fishbowl is a smorgasbord of inventory management features for the Food & Beverage industry
If food is literally your bread and butter, you better make sure your business has the right inventory management solution to minimize waste and optimize assets. For many companies in the Food & Beverage industry, Fishbowl is best thing since sliced bread. It helps with inventory tracking, manufacturing, unit-of-measure conversions, inventory scrapping, custom reporting, and picking, packing, and shipping goods.
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.
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.
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 – 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.
