Fishbowl Enterprise (FBE) is lean warehouse management software that offers accounting, inventory management, point of sale and web-based contact management, allowing small businesses to postpone a move to a more expensive enterprise resource planning/material requirements planning system. FBE puts control of critical information back in the hands of the managers and other people who need to use it, rather than having to give access to resource-intensive IT because of over-engineered software. Realizing most midsize businesses don’t need or use all of the features traditional ERP systems offer and require them to pay for, Fishbowl provides the robust features companies require at a far more reasonable price and level of IT resources. The concept behind FBE is integrating Fishbowl Inventory with QuickBooks Enterprise to eliminate double data entry that takes additional time and can cause costly errors without employing extra IT people.
As small businesses grow their processes become more sophisticated, their inventory quantity grows, and manufacturing methods get more complicated. Fishbowl Enterprise assists the small business market in North America by designing software specifically for small businesses, so that they don't have to stifle growth by investing in enterprise software and IT infrastructure that they don't need.
Fast growing small businesses have typically used inventory management software that cost too much because they had no other choice. Fishbowl Enterprise isn’t bogged down with the one-size fits all features for large corporations, and because it’s so lean it helps companies find operational success by providing relevant information on a real time basis. The ROI is immediately felt and often fully realized in a few months if not weeks with Fishbowl Enterprise.
