Beware! They will force you to purchase a service contract for their faulty software

Fishbowl has not resolved problems with their software that existed since we started using it in 2013. It appears as though they do not want to resolve software problems in order to force customers to purchase service contracts.

PROS

Inventory tracking features. Fishbowl wikipedia is somewhat helpful.

CONS

No support without a service contract even though the problems are inherent with Fishbowl software, not caused by the user(s). Some of the sales and technical staff are rude/disrespectful.

Overall review of FB

Your senior support team like Brison are what keeps FB working at an acceptable rate. Overall, we finally see improvements in customer support.

PROS

Pricing and affordability. Extensive training not required for all employees.

CONS

Plug-ins not working. spent countless hours fixing Plug-in issues. Then we had to dish out another 6k for sellware after we already paid for the original plugins. Not a way to do business.!

Reason for choosing Fishbowl

Price was reasonable, No extensive training required.

Reasons for switching to Fishbowl

We did not want to depend on inhouse staff due to constant personnel changes.
