What Fishbowl Has to Offer as An Inventory Management System

For large-volume producers and sellers, coordinating your manufacturing, inventory, purchase orders, and accounting was a logistical quagmire. With so many moving pieces and different departments and locations involved, things were easily jumbled, slipped through the cracks, and were generally inefficient. Until automated inventory management systems came along.

While most inventory systems could help you organize your stock, and maybe even orders and shipping, they fell flat when it came to manufacturing and accounting. Fishbowl is here to change that. 

We can confidently say that Fishbowl is tried and tested, with clients like General Electric, the US Air Force, and NASA on their roster. These global titans are proof that Fishbowl has the capability of managing your workflows with ease.

Order Management and Creation. 

The ability to create, schedule, order, categorize, and customize work orders is part of what sets Fishbowl apart from other inventory managers. Whether they are full-scale work orders or build-to-order, you can easily manage the specifics, customized to your workflow and your manufacturing processes.

Besides production work orders, Fishbowl can also help you manage store purchases. Automatically generating production and purchase orders means you will always have available stock - no more delayed or cancelled orders. Alternatively, the MRP system can help ensure production begins automatically at low-stock points or scheduled dates so you always have plenty on the shelf.

Beyond helping you collect orders, organize manufacturing, and automate your inventory, Fishbowl can also help with your transportation and logistics. With their 3PL capabilities, you can set up drop shipments, and organize your inventory locations down to the shelf. 

Having the capabilities to manage multiple warehouse locations, you can move your stock and consign it to specific retailers and locations on a broad or granular level.
