Fishbowl Go is a mobile app that integrates with Fishbowl Manufacturing® and Fishbowl Warehouse® to handle the physical inventory side of business. Access Fishbowl Go on any mobile device with Android or iOS operating systems, and use it to scan barcodes and perform many key inventory management jobs throughout your warehouse.
Get Fishbowl Go and accelerate your warehouse management processes.
With the simple scan of a barcode, you can receive inventory into your system as it comes off the truck, make adjustments to quantities being received, and enter tracking information in real time. Receive parts with serial numbers, lot numbers, revision levels and expiration dates. Fishbowl Go even suggests where to place your incoming inventory, helping your workers become even more efficient.
Fishbowl Go lets you start and finish a pick order right from your handheld device. Instead of having to print a pick order, the program walks you through your warehouse telling you where to pick and the quantity needed to fill your order. Save time by combining multiple orders and picking them simultaneously. Pick inventory for sales orders, work orders, transfer orders and vendor returns.
After all of the items in a sales order have been picked, they can be packed using the Pack module. You’ll be able to see all of the orders that have been entered and picked. Add the number of cartons you need to pack everything into and then assign each item to a carton. If items have tracking information associated with them, you’ll see an edit screen pop up once you pack the items in a carton. This will help you modify serial numbers and quantities as necessary. And finally, you can select a carrier at the bottom of the screen to ship the order.
After orders have been picked and packed, the next step is to ship them in the Ship module. That’s the default process, anyway. You can even ship orders that haven’t been packed yet by clicking the “Include entered shipments” button in the Fishbowl Go plugin. You can display as many packed orders as you like on the screen by clicking on the “Settings” button. Shipping is quite easy. You simply click on an order and then click the “Ship” button up top. The order will disappear from the list of orders waiting to be shipped. If necessary, you can void a shipment in Fishbowl’s Shipping module if it hasn’t already been exported to QuickBooks or Xero.
Keep your warehouse up to date by recording inventory movements as they happen. Many inventory discrepancies occur as the result of misplaced, moved or poorly recorded parts. Rather than trying to keep track of which parts are moved to new locations and entering changes after the fact, Fishbowl Go allows you to simply scan the location and part bar codes to record the move of your inventory. You'll save time by recording the movement of inventory as it occurs.
This module is pretty self-explanatory. You can use it to add to the inventory quantities you have in stock. Simply go to the Reports module and print barcodes for all of your parts and locations. When you want to add inventory, scan a location first, then scan the part you want to add inventory to at that location, and type in the quantity you are adding. You can also manually enter locations, parts, and quantities. If you’d like to add tracking information to items, enter or scan the new tracking criterion and click the “Add Inventory” button.
Sometimes an item gets damaged or worn out, so it becomes necessary to throw it out. That’s what the Scrap module is for. It’s the reverse of the Add Inventory module. Like that module, this one relies on part and location barcodes to let you scan the ones you’re working with, but you can also do it manually. When you want to scrap items in your inventory, scan their location and then the items themselves. After that, simply enter the quantity being scrapped and their tracking information, if necessary.
Fishbowl Go makes updating product quantities much easier with its cycle counting feature! It is basically a combination of the Add Inventory and Scrap modules. You can adjust inventory up or down depending on the discrepancy you notice between the quantity that is in your inventory records and the quantity that is actually on the shelf. Check out our Cycle Counting Inventory Page to learn more.
Quickly and easily look up part descriptions, UPC's, and real-time part tracking information. Use existing UPC's, serial & lot numbers, expiration dates, or Fishbowl-generated barcodes to manage your inventory with accuracy and efficiency. You can even assign new or updated UPC's. If you're using a wireless device and happen to leave your coverage area, your data is automatically preserved and ready to resubmit once the connection is reestablished. Also, Fishbowl's security settings let you customize access rights by user.
You can finish work orders in Fishbowl Go’s Work Order module. Depending on the settings you have, you will be able to see only started work orders or both started and open work orders on this screen. When you click on a work order, it will display the raw goods contained in it. You can add more raw goods and pick them, if they haven’t already been picked. The final screen shows you how many finished products will be manufactured from the raw goods in the work order, and you can update that number by clicking the “Add” button. Once you’ve completed a work order, add its tracking information and then click the “Finish” button. Nice and easy.
The Delivery module is almost identical to the Ship module in Fishbowl Go, but the one thing that distinguishes it from that other module is it includes an option to obtain signature confirmation from your customers when their orders arrive. This can be a big benefit to clear up any confusion and assure you that your customers are getting what they ordered on schedule. You can modify the signature image’s dimensions by going into the Shipping module’s “Details” tab and clicking on the button marked “Change image options.”
