Fishbowl to Provide Bundled Total Inventory Management System for Mid-Size Businesses
June 10, 2009
OREM, Utah, June 10, 2009 — Fishbowl today announced it will sell a bundled version of its Fishbowl Inventory software with Intuit's QuickBooks Enterprise for the first time to provide a single and complete inventory management system specially designed to improve overall efficiencies and inventory accounting effectiveness for medium-sized businesses.
The two products have always provided a complete solution, but this will be the first time Fishbowl customers will be able to get the solution as a bundle instead of separately. The two provide the most advanced and cost effective inventory management system available.
The solution provides users with a robust and scalable inventory management system that makes it more attractive and viable for mid-sized companies to stay with QuickBooks as they grow. For example, as mid-size companies continue to grow they often will have multiple locations they must manage. Fishbowl gives these companies the ability to manage their inventory for all of their locations.
The complete inventory management bundle is available directly from Fishbowl as well as from Intuit Solutions Partners (ISP) resellers who are also Fishbowl resellers. Fishbowl will assist resellers by providing demonstrations, training, and support services.
“Many small businesses eventually grow to mid-size businesses and abandon QuickBooks for a variety of very expensive inventory solutions to manage their business,” said David Williams, Fishbowl CEO. Providing the complete bundle of these two great technologies for a strong inventory management system allows us to expand aggressively into the medium sized business category because we can offer the efficiencies these businesses are looking for and give them long term returns and benefits at a fraction of the cost they expected to pay.
Fishbowl Inventory is designed to provide medium sized businesses with the same competitive advantages large organizations with elaborate inventory solutions enjoy, but at a much lower cost and with shorter learning curves. As companies are under competitive pressure to produce “more with less,” the integration of QuickBooks Enterprise and Fishbowl Inventory is a practical choice and an ideal solution for achieving maximum efficiency and profit.
