Powerful, Affordable Inventory and Order Management Software

Stated simply, Fishbowl is the best in it's class, period! Easy to use, incredibly effective and affordable Inventory and Order Management Software.

Pros

Fishbowl offers and unparalleled ease of use. Our whole team was trained and up and running in hours. You simply won't find another software package with the range of features and reliability at this price range. It easily bests other software packages costing 3 times what Fishbowl costs!

Cons

Their call back support could be a little faster, but it's still likely better than most software companies.

Fishbowl Manufacturing Software has proven an invaluable inventory management tool for our...

Fishbowl Management software has offered our team a complete supply chain management and physical sales tracking system in one convenient system . In this time especially , we understand that organization and efficiency are paramount to surviving let alone prospering and we are thankful to Fishbowl for helping.

Pros

Our team found both these ease of use and relative ease of integration to be among the most attractive components of Fishbowl. The variety of modules allow close monitoring of essentially every aspect of
physical asset tracking . With Fishbowl we can organize warehouse parts inventory , print labels,and
organize purchase orders which organizes our supply side. Fishbowl's sales side module allows for effective tracking of lead times as well as sales item forecasting so we are never behind on available inventory .

Cons

Fishbowl Manufacturing software at this time time requires the use of a server which we had to supply .
In exchange for all other features , we see this as a nominal and not inconvenient requirement as at the time we were adding new computer assets. This requirement may not suit all smaller companies.

kintone and Finale Inventory

Reasons for Switching to Fishbowl

We selected Fishbowl Inventory Management software over alternatives for its comprehensive module options which allow for a complete organization of our office and warehouse now optimized with a primary consideration to sales output and production. We could not ask for more in this area of business operations.

Fishbowl is a great product!

Implementation was awesome. No issues whatsoever. Madison and Nic were great to work with.

Pros

How robust the software was and how versatile it can be.

Cons

Don't have any dislikes yet. We have only been using for about a month.

Caution, Over promise and under deliver!!

When I started talking with sales they really over sold Fishbowls capabilities. They will promise the world to you. Nothing is impossible for Fishbowl they will say.
Take caution because it has not been anything like that. We have been forced to change almost every procedure because Fishbowl only has "One" way of doing things. It is not as customizable as you will be told by the sales reps.
On site training is not worth the extra money they will charge you for. Our trainer spent two days covering all the different modules and then when it was time to "Go Live" instead of helping us or at least leading us through it like we had be told. We were basically on our own to figure it out.
Don't be fooled by the Demo they provide. It is very different to run through the modules when everything setup but the process to get everything setup will take hours and weeks and maybe even months to complete.
And then here is the worse part about Fishbowl!! One of the selling points is "5 star US based customer support". Only if you live in Mountain time zone.
They are only open 8-5 Mountain Time and most times we wait 2 - 4 hours to speak with tech support only to be told that Fishbowl cannot do that. Or No fishbowl cannot do it that way. Very very frustrating!

Pros

Nothing. There is nothing in this entire software that has made our jobs easier or more convenient.

Cons

I have a lot of complaints about Fishbowl. It feels like the kind of software that someone had a really good idea and set out to develop the code but then got bored with it or ran out of money so stopped developing before it was complete.
Sure it works for a few industries but I would definitely not go and call it a robust manufacturing software.
