Ease of use, features, customer support. Detailed handling of WIP. Inventory at multiple locations can be tracked.

Does not integrate bar code scanning without an add on. It must be available to use easily even with existing bar code scanners that are corded.

This is a great start-up and small business POS program. It is robust and will allow your company to grow with out paying out for additional software upgrades. The inventory controls, vendor and receiving modules work great together. You don't have any limiitations when creating new part numbers. Custom pricing is easily learned.

Pros

For a wholesale / retail business, this is a feature packed program that handles most day to day operations and is accurate. Being PC / Server based, you don't have lag time or glitches. It's a good solid program. Integration with QBO is seamless... one button updates or create a schedule. Unlike other software companies, the service package is affordable, and the support staff is top notch.

Cons

This program is great for start up and smaller businesses, but the downside is the upfront initial cost. After using Fishbowl Inventory, you will find that the benefits outweight the cost.

Fishbowl is great. The system significantly improved our efficiency and allowed us to focus on other parts of the business since fishbowl inventory is so easy to use

Pros

Super user friendly, implementation team (Lucas Miller) is amazing and extremely helpful. System easily links with QBS, Fedex, and makes managing a complex system very easy.

We would love to have him out again and have him be our main rep for fishbowl.

Thank you for sending him!

Pros

Amon was very nice, knowledgeable, informative. When something didn't work right, he figured it out quickly and was able to complete a lot of things we had not prepared for.

Cons

He was patient with our company which didn't have much of a data base built and helped as much as he could. He was positive and respectful the whole time.

I have only been using this software for a few months and have to say that it is easy to learn and very functional. The trainer that trained me and the tech support guys I have talked with are very knowledgeable on the software and a great help.

Pros

I like all the different links that can be used between modules to get to the information I'm looking for easier.

Cons

I wish we could create our own reports when needed. There is some confusion for me with the MO and Picking modules, almost seems to be too much, especially for what we are using it for..

Old. missing basic features, such as reports, description is made by some one who never used the software, it was made for money making for The company it self, but soon enough you will find out how poor the customer support is. Walk Away

Pros

if you planning in opening a eBay amazon you ok, other than that walk away.
there is not much i like about it. not at all it is not made for over 1 mil companies. home user will find if fun to work with

Cons

It is very hard to customize reports, part and product FYI Are not the same F.B is good for shipping but when you need to mix it with your accounting program its lacking, as it is not an accounting program.

If you decide to use them make sure not to sign long term contract

I am incredibly disappointed in the products service and wish I could get my money back, however since it takes weeks for a reply and over a two months to get to the point where I could actually use the software, it was past the period of a refund. They do not care about you, your time, or your business.

Pros

I like the capabilities of the product. It has a lot of great features that could be utilized if you were able to get the proper support and training.

Cons

The set up has taken over two months with absolutely terrible customer service and support. I am still not able to utilize the software in a way that is even workable in my business and I have called, left messages, sent emails and it is not abnormal for it to take weeks for a reply if you even get one. Also it does not have quality sales reports.

Fishbowl Rocks!

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Pros

The software is very powerful. It's also very user-friendly. It makes simple things easy. For example, when you are searching for parts or inventory, you only need to type in a portion of the part number. It can even be the middle of the part, and it will pull up all relevant matches. When searching for a part, you input your information and just hit enter. No need to take your hands off the keyboard and move the mouse to click on something. Blows Quickbooks multi-inventory away.

Cons

The main screens on the vendor and customer modules are greyed out because you can't edit names and numbers from there. The greyed out areas are very difficult to read.

If you are going to charge this much for a product it should look like it was made in this century, it should have all of the modern data interchange features expected from a modern application, and support should be fantastic. We have started looking at alternatives and will NOT be renewing.

Pros

Decent product. The interface is a little dated, and some standard thing you would expect in functionality are missing or difficult to use. But, overall, it is a decent product if your goal is to have an inventory and order management system that integrates with Quickbooks.

Cons

You will get no support unless you complain. We just updated our license, paid for a year of support. Still waiting 48 hours later for a call back from support. This is normal.

When you do get the support you will most likely start with the lowest level support and have to either speak to the real support people through an intermediary or have to wait another day or two for the next level of support to call you back. Repeat that process until you finally get to someone who knows what they are talking about.

Support this expensive should be fantastic. Instead, I am not certain what they could do to make this any worse.

Pros

There's a lot more to Fishbowl than meets the eye. I strongly recommend on-site training. Fishbowl support team is excellent. Fishbowl is a great value.

Cons

Setting up plug-ins have been challenging. We're a Mac shop and there are a few issues with the client app, but in the end, Fishbowl's Mac application works just fine.

Utilizing the all of the features, reports, and support of this system will help your company grow to be successful. Being able to make groups for customers is extremely helpful especially in the field that I'm in because we have state contracts and different pricing structures for different customers.

Cons

The thing that I like least about this product is that it runs extremely slow. We have about 8-15 users and sometimes it's a painful process. If it was ran on the cloud it would be much more efficient.

The software has greatly streamlined and centralized our inventory management and purchasing systems.

Pros

The software streamlines a lot of decision making in terms of what stock is needed when. Even with our system where the majority of parts we have are non-sales items, being able to track a system from start to finish is incredibly helpful.

Cons

Our units involve a lot of custom features, and the software isn't as intuitive for situations like that. We don't carry stock of our final products, just our raw materials, and while the program is able to handle this, it's clearly not designed for that scenario.

Works with Mac, Qb online, and Amazon FBA. Lots of features. Paid training was comprehensive. Overall it has solved many of our inventory issues.

Cons

I really do want to like the software but some days I am sitting there pulling my hair out. There are little glitches that do not seamlessly integrate all of the different features together. Our poor bookkeeper has had a really difficult time because there are so many discrepancies during the import to QuickBooks online which makes reconciliation a nightmare. Numerous other bugs along the way that requires a support call. The biggest gripe I have is that their support is hit or miss. Sometimes we get a call back within 10 minutes sometimes it's two days. I really thought they had it figured out because they went to a ticketing based system which seemed to improve things. However I'm on day two of waiting on a call back as I write this...

Had a lot of advanced features, which, if set up and used correctly, could make a business more organized and proficient.

Cons

Very misleading company that does not have the customers best interest in mind. The software layout is quite difficult to navigate and understand. Claims to integrate well with Quickbooks, but you will constantly find things which are not transferred. They give you a demo bike company system to start out and no instruction on how to start a fresh company or to connect it with quickbooks. We also came across a "bug" in their system which doubled our customers grand totals on sales orders & invoices. Customer service is unwilling to try and make things right. We attempted to get our money back after 45 days and are not being heard. Fishbowl does not care about their customers, after they are past their (hidden) 30 day return policy.

Inventory control is our biggest benefit.

Pros

The use of the dashboard as a quick overview and how modules are linked within sales orders or other modules, makes moving from one module to another easy.

Cons

Learning the program was a challenge but after a few trial and errors I can easily maneuver through the program. Also, I dislike the inability to customize reports ourselves. Paying additional fees to have reports created just to add a signature line on a packing slip is a downfall. Wish it was more user-friendly when it came to report changes.

I don't use FB a lot, but I would have to say that the thing I like most is It's ability to export to QuickBooks.

Cons

Sometimes it takes too many steps to change an order.

Pros

Not much, we have always had a frustrating user experience with getting fishbowl to work as designed

Cons

It doesn't always work, crashes alot, has to have the server restarted a few times a month. Not reliable. Reach support has been the stuff of horror movies. I hate having to wait for a call back and then playing phone tag.

Pros

Fishbowl has made us accountable for the inventory counts - not like QuickBooks. Like how it hits QuickBooks.

Cons

I would like to see sales by customer and item reports. Fishbowl may have this - just need to figure it out.

The biggest benefit was seeing exactly where we needed to be more efficient. We didn't track our vendors well before and now we know exactly how long it takes to get items we've ordered and how long it takes us to manufacture the items and get them back out the door.

Pros

The software is great for keeping track of our inventory and our manufacturing processes. We know exactly what can be shipped and it has increased efficiency quite a bit.

Cons

Reporting could use some work, it is a bit clunky. The reports are there but I've found the best way to work with them is to download the .csv and work with it in a spreadsheet. They have services to create custom reports if necessary.
