    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.

    Pros

    From an administrator standpoint it is very easy to implement and maintain. From a end user standpoint it is very easy to train new Fishbowl users, all modules are designed with the end users ease of use in mind. Technical Support personnel are very knowledgeable and usually isolate and fix and issues quickly.

    Cons

    I wish the reporting side of Fishbowl was more robust, Home Care Industries is a manufacturer they rely heavily on making sure raw materials are on hand or on order to meet customer orders. Having a true MPS or MRP as part of Fishbowl with be a great enhancement.

    Great for inventory management, Interesting to use for Manufacturing

    Reviewed on 29/05/2024

    Pros

    Fishbowl is great for inventory management where 1+1=2. Simple in and out inventory is perfect and easy to set up

    Cons

    For complex manufacturing it is hard to use on the daily basis. There is a lot of wait times waiting for processes to be completed before you can enter them into fishbowl. There is no way for us to go fully real time live with our process.

    Will Fishbowl Survive in the coming years?

    Like many ERP systems, it has been overhyped and falls short of expectations. We initially implemented it alongside QuickBooks 2022. Interestingly, QuickBooks 2023 and subsequently QuickBooks 2024 have incorporated nearly all the features and functionalities that initially prompted us to integrate FishBowl. With the enhanced capabilities of QuickBooks 2024 and the shift towards cloud-based solutions, it's doubtful that FishBowl will sustain its business for more than a few years.

    Pros

    Onboarding was smooth and responsive. The team was responsive and helpful, although be prepared to do all the work yourself. while it seems crazy at some point its worth starting from scratch on your inventory and negating Quickbooks inventory all together.

    Cons

    Once your system is operational, support becomes a distant concern. Seeking assistance entails potentially shelling out thousands for even the most straightforward requests, if and when you manage to get a response. The scheduling for a simple fix or question may drag on for up to two weeks.

    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.!
