Inventory management software publisher wins in technology-driven state
OREM, Utah, April 30, 2013 - The Best of State advisory board selected Fishbowl® as the technology category’s top software publisher for the second straight year. Utah is home to more than 7,000 technology companies and has 20.1 percent more technology companies per capita than the national average, according to the Utah Technology Council.
“Fishbowl is the most requested inventory management software by businesses who use QuickBooks,” said David K. Williams, Fishbowl CEO. “We continually look for new ways to help businesses succeed. By providing what they want and need we don’t waste their time or money on overbuilt systems.”
A panel of judges selects the Best of State award winners based on:
- Achievement in the field of endeavor – In the past year Fishbowl added UPS Ready and multi-currency features to its software. UPS Ready enables Fishbowl customers to get rate quotes, print labels, and ship orders directly from Fishbowl Inventory. Multi-currency provides Fishbowl with users the ability to manage vendor currencies and convert purchase orders from any currency into U.S. dollars for accounting and billing purposes.
- Innovation in methods and processes – Fishbowl emphasizes seven non-negotiables: respect, belief, trust, loyalty, commitment, courage, and gratitude. Stock options are given at the employee-owned company based on adherence to these non-negotiables. Williams will release a new book entitled “The 7 Non-Negotiables of Winning” in August.
- Contribution to improving quality of life in Utah – Each year Fishbowl closes down for one full day and all of its employees go and serve local schools and other worthy causes. Fishbowl also offers free monthly educational events to the public through the CAM Center and partners with Utah Valley University on academic grant and student development initiatives.
“The Best of State award is unique because it takes into account what a company does for other businesses and the community,” said Mary Michelle Scott, Fishbowl president. “We are committed long term to supporting other businesses and want to see them grow along with Fishbowl.”
