Fishbowl on a Roll with Sixth Straight Year on Inc. 500|5000

Fishbowl ranks No. 2740 and joins exclusive list of companies with six consecutive appearances

SALT LAKE CITY, September 10, 2013 – Fishbowl®, the No. 1 requested inventory management software for QuickBooks®, earned a spot on the Inc. 500|5000 list for the sixth year in a row in 2013. The Inc. 500|5000 ranks U.S. companies by their three-year percentage growth in annual revenue, and Fishbowl’s 127 percent increase put it at No. 2740 on the list this year.

Fishbowl has joined an elite group of 827 other companies on Inc.’s Honor Roll with six or more years of consecutive placement. As businesses grow, they often have a harder time sustaining high growth percentages in revenue, even though they’re earning higher dollar amounts.

“Fishbowl’s success is a win for our employees, partners, and customers,” said David K. Williams, Fishbowl CEO. “We’re sharing ownership of our company with employees, allowing partners to integrate their products with our software, and giving SMBs inventory software for a fraction of the price big corporations are charged.”

Below are some of the major developments that happened at Fishbowl since it was last named to the Inc. 500|5000 list in 2012:

  • Fishbowl Inventory is now certified as UPS Ready, which means Fishbowl users can get shipping quotes, print shipping labels, and contact UPS from Fishbowl’s interface.
  • Multi-currency functionality was added to Fishbowl’s Purchase Order module.
  • The software now integrates with QuickBooks’ currency tools.
  • Fishbowl developed a new training program to help customers succeed in areas beyond inventory management.
  • Fishbowl CEO David K. Williams’ book, The 7 Non-Negotiables of Winning: Tying Soft Traits to Hard Results, was selected as a top summer read by the editors at Amazon.

In addition to its revenue growth and new products and features, Fishbowl has more than doubled its number of employees since 2008 to nearly 100.

"Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500|5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward,” said Eric Schurenberg, Inc. Magazine editor. “Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is.”

The 2013 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2009 to 2012. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—and generating revenue as of March 31, 2009.
