"We Love Fishbowl"
Donna
Overall Rating:

Comments: Fishbowl is the perfect answer for our business. Part of our business requires inventory tracking, storage and fulfillment so it is essential we are able to pull information at any given time about any item or order. The reporting feature in Fishbowl makes this so quick and easy and our clients love the fact Fishbowl allows us to offer them monthly activity reports in many different styles. The ability and the ease of being able to integrate Fishbowl with QuickBooks for billing and vendor payments is a BIG plus. Personally, the best thing about Fishbowl is the tech support staff. They really know their stuff!

"Thank Goodness for Fishbowl"
Great Plains
Overall Rating:

Comments: We looked at Fishbowl Inventory two years ago and felt that it did not have the capacity for our needs. Instead we opted for a 100k plus enterprise solution. After an additional 20k in customization we still did not have a software solution to manage our inventory, needless to say we jettisoned our investment and reinvestigated the market. We demoed three different inventory management software packages and actually purchased the least expensive one...Fishbowl Inventory Fishbowl has the most robust and technical sound solution for our needs. We have several locations with thousands of different products. We have found the technical support superb and the training thorough. We paid less than 10% for Fishbowl than what we did for our "nightmare" experience with the other enterprise solution.

"Fishbowl Help"

Overall Rating:

Comments: We added Fishbowl Inventory and this was a huge solution to our problems. It is very user friendly and accurate. It doesn't allow a transaction to take place without proper inventory. We have five offices, and each is responsible for counting their inventory. Fishbowl Inventory allows us to see how accurate each location is counting and helps us to better monitor inventory. Creating sales orders is so fast and easy. I've saved so much time by using Fishbowl Inventory. We love the new software and would highly recommend it to anybody with any type of inventory to be accountable for.

The Technical Support through Fishbowl is wonderful. Kevin helped us tremendously while we were setting up and training our staff. They were extremely knowledgeable and very considerate to our needs. The technical support department of Fishbowl made learning and understanding the program as easy as they could. They made sure you grasped the concepts before they moved on, and also worked with you to make sure that you used Fishbowl in a way that worked best for your company. Their Fishbowl forum is also a valuable tool to use, for many of your questions are asked and answered on the site.

Signal Seals & Fasteners
By Buffy Crooks

Signal Seals & Fasteners is a distributor of seals & fasteners. Until recently, our business consisted primarily of seals. We made the decision to expand into fastener sales because we felt like the two products went hand in hand. This meant that our inventory was going to grow and we needed someway to manage that.

We also decided we really liked the QuickBooks products and wanted to continue to use it for our accounting software. We began to explore the options available for interfacing an inventory management software with Quickbooks. Our biggest priority was whatever we chose had to be user friendly.

Eventronix has offered us a great option with Fishbowl Inventory. The software is very user friendly and has been a great match for our company. The integration with QuickBooks works great. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. They are very eager to help with any issues that may arise.


Special Bee
By Donna

This software has the best tech support I have ever used. The Tech staff is extremely knowledgeable, polite, friendly, and willing to stay on the phone with me as long as I need them, answering all my questions, and even making suggestions to help make my job easier. Thanks so much for everything Bryan and Ian


BooJee Beads

We got a quality piece of software, but more importantly, a team of "can do" people who are incredibly competent, positive, client focused and I really felt that they were invested in helping us to be as successful as possible using the tool that they have developed. The software has helped us significantly in understanding our manufacturing costs and the real time value of our inventory. They went above and beyond what I would have expected to help us.

We are very happy with our investment in Fishbowl Inventory (which we affectionately call "the bowl" or the "big guppy") and the team behind it. I don't know about you, but for most of the software I purchase you get basically no live support if you don't purchase some pricey support plan. The team at Fishbowl Inventory has built that support starter time into the software price and it made a BIG difference to have someone to lean on in the start up process. The ongoing support plan is reasonable priced and they actually answer the phone when you call!! If you haven't guessed, we're fans!


The Fireside Inc.

As a small business with multiple locations and thousands of inventory items...we spent months searching and trying out various inventory products that would work with QuickBooks. All but one comes up short in many different areas.

Fishbowl Inventory was the final program on our list and luckily, exactly what we were looking for. It addressed our bar coding needs, and made entering inventory and writing up sales orders a snap—saving us hours of time and of course money. Integration was very simple and straightforward.

We have concluded that our company, as a Distributor for Lennox Hearth Products and handling thousands of inventory items, have paid for our investment in Fishbowl Inventory in less than 6 months time just in saved man hours alone. I normally don't have time to write reviews like this, but I feel I owe it to the makers of Fishbowl Inventory for doing such a great job and giving me some extra time in my life by taking the headache out of inventory management.


Caliper Club Works

As a manufacturing engineer for over 25 years, I have been in search of a reasonably priced ERP/MRP/etc. solution with robust features. My small business cannot afford large, overbearing G/L, A/P packages that pay little, if any, attention to the production process, especially inventory control.

Fishbowl Inventory changed ALL that. They provide wonderful features that many larger, much more expensive packages offer: Bill of Materials (with configurable option order entry capability), Automatic Work Order generation, Real time Inventory Controls, extensive Reporting capabilities, and they integrate right into QuickBooks.

Value is the name of the games with my small business, and Fishbowl Inventory scores a hole-in-one. Wonderfully attentive support staff, constant improvements based on customer feedback and a robust product - all at a great value. Highly recommended.


FCI Technology
By Linda

I have been a Fishbowl Inventory user for 1 year and wish to give thanks to the Tech Support staff. I have been on the phone with Kevin Batchelor for over 1 hour and he is very smart and willing to do what it takes to get my problems solved.I wish everyone that I needed to get information from was as helpful. Thanks again to you all and I look forward to a long and happy relationship.


ChristianCinema.com
By Jared Geesey

We use Fishbowl Inventory to manage our inventory and integrate from our website to QuickBooks. It brought our processing time down from 3-5 minutes per order in QuickBooks to about 30 seconds in Fishbowl Inventory (about an 800% improvement!). We had also reached the maximum number of customers in QuickBooks as well, and Fishbowl Inventory let us have unlimited number of customers. Managing inventory by location is also a powerful tool to have... previously we had items organized alphabetically and our warehouse staff had to basically have the inventory memorized... Not very scalable!

Fishbowl Inventory also does not deduct the inventory from your system until the order ships (not when the invoice is created, like QuickBooks). This helps keep track of things much better... a Real Pick, Pack, and Ship system! It also is much easier to import and export data from Fishbowl Inventory, enabling you to more easily integrate other systems (like ecommerce sites, etc.) into Fishbowl Inventory. The final great benefit is the ability to write custom reports... if you can imagine it, it can probably be done!

When we started working with FB, we were in bad shape. Our entire operation was in chaos. They came in and brought order. Their staff of experts knew what our business needed and how to execute it. Thank you.

What do these guys eat for breakfast?

I have never dealt with a company that has been more willing to help. Every employee that I have worked with at Fishbowl has earnestly strived to understand my requests and provide the best solution for my needs. I know that I can count on the technical support staff. I was also impressed by the constant development of the software. The email capabilities and report features of the 4.5 version has been extremely helpful. I am excited to see what will come next.

The best support

I've used many accounting, inventory and software programs and I've never encountered support as great as that from Fishbowl Inventory. I send an email and before I know it, I get a reply. And not just a reply- but a reply that actually answers my questions and makes sense. The program was easy to use and the online tutorial and help is great. If I were Siskel and Ebert I'd give these folks at least 3 thumbs up.

An Awesome Inventory Control System!

WOW! Fishbowl is a fantastic inventory control system! It has helped us organize our inventory from sales to purchasing, and it interfaces with our existing QuickBooks software! The technical support is fantastic too! The sales reps are always friendly & so willing to help us with all of our "operator errors"! Kudos to Fishbowl & its staff for going the extra mile to help even those of us who are only "semi-computer literate"!

Fishbowl Grows with Your Business

We have been a Fishbowl client for two and half years and have experienced first hand their growth and continuous improvement efforts. The core product has undergone constant enhancements with regular spot releases and two major releases during that time. Each one has added needed functionality to support our business and keep us ahead of the curve with our competitors as we further develop our own business systems. The support and development staff have listened to the client base and kept the development of the product aligned with client requests. We highly recommend Fishbowl based in large part to their development efforts and price point. As a former systems integrator with experience implementing large ERP applications, I have been very favorably impressed with Fishbowl as an excellent mid-range software solution.

The Perfect Inventory Solution
By Victor M

Fishbowl inventory is the perfect solution for inventory control at the right price. I have been using Fishbowl since its 2.2 version and just upgraded to its 4.0 version and I love it. It has a great variety of features like serial number, lot, expiration dates tracking. It also let you enter various vendors for one part with they specific part number and price. The integration with QuickBooks is easy to configure and will save you a lot time with no double entries. Process all the orders through fishbowl, pack, ship, and then export to QuickBooks and print the invoice, it's that easy. Before buying Fishbowl I tried other software and couldn't find one like it for its price. Great product and will recommended to anybody that's looking for the right inventory solution.
