Original Press Release:
Inventory Control System Gives Businesses A New Edge
Fishbowl Inventory 2.0 Released
July 28, 2003 - Orem, UT - Fishbowl Inventory, a division of Eventronix LLC, announces the release of Fishbowl Inventory 2.0. Fishbowl Inventory is inventory control and manufacturing software that integrates with QuickBooks. It gives businesses the ability to integrate non-accounting functions such as Sales Order/Purchase order creation, inventory control, and light manufacturing to their accounting system using QuickBooks.
"This release will give small to medium businesses the ability to effectively and efficiently improve their inventory control systems while integrating with QuickBooks", said Kevin Dalrymple. "Fishbowl Inventory 2.0 is exactly what we've been looking for. Fishbowl does all we need in a straightforward and logical way. The architecture is right on, the usability is a piece of cake and it takes no time at all to teach people how to use it. And best of all, we didn't have to drop QuickBooks for a higher end, much more costly and difficult to use application".
QuickBooks owns 85% of the small business market in the United States. As companies grow they quickly run up against QuickBooks' limitations and are often faced with a
$10k-$50k cost for a new solution, not to mention the hassle of retraining and installing the new system. Fishbowl Inventory solves this problem by allowing the user to stay with QuickBooks but still have the integrated Inventory Control, sales and manufacturing capabilities of the more expensive systems.
Fishbowl Inventory can track an unlimited number of parts and products at multiple locations. It generates work orders, purchase orders, sales orders, serial number tracking, unit of measure conversions, variable pricing, point of sale, and works over the Internet. Fishbowl Inventory 2.0 gives businesses the ability to improve their packaging and shipping process.
Generate Bill of Materials and Work Orders
With Fishbowls' Bill of Materials and Work Orders capabilities, companies can now define what parts go into the production of specific products and then have the Work Order automatically generated once a sale is made. The Work Order contains the Bill of Materials, a Pick List, and delivery date for each product.
Track parts at multiple locations
Fishbowls' unique client/server architecture allows for exceedingly fast Internet communication between multiple warehouses, production areas and offices. This provides the user with the ability to see, in real time, what's in stock, what's in production, and where it's located, right down to the bin number.
Generate sales orders or estimates faster
With Variable bill of materials, companies that sell standard products that need the ability to add on variable options can use Fishbowl Inventory 2.0 to quickly and easily generate estimates or sales orders. A car dealer can use the software to define the base model and then create lists of various options or add-ons to the car that may affect the total cost. Once the base model and options are selected the user can then print up an estimate, or convert the estimate to a sales order from which a work order is automatically created.
