Part Tracking

Fishbowl’s part tracking system keeps you informed on where to find each part required for a specific manufacturing job, and it also alerts you when parts need to be reordered.

Tracking parts by location speeds up the processes of manufacturing and shipping products. In addition, Fishbowl adds up the total cost of the parts and labor that go into products so you can make informed decisions when setting prices.
