    Fishbowl

    Fishbowl is well suited for warehouse operations because you can control, monitor, report or view the progress of materials all the way from purchasing and receiving to the shipment and tracking of products. It integrates with major carriers and with QuickBooks so it does offer a suite that can support the entire operation. It allows for workflow monitoring, so particular groups or products can be tracked.

    Odoo

    The software is really good for managing inputs and inventory as well as maintaining traceability. The "track picking moves" functionality lets you look into a specific lot or serial numbers and view all the product moves that occurred with that lot. However, some navigation is not intuitive. For example, if I click on an item in the BoM of an assembly, then click the back button to go back to the assembly, the site goes all the way back to the home screen. Some of these quirks mean that there is a learning curve for the software, but overall the tracking is very good.

    Pros

    Fishbowl

    • Inventory control - provides easy/accurate reports. Also, cycle counts can be done at any time. The warehouse team was easily trained.
    • Sales Orders - Fishbowl allowed us to have the sales orders accessible to everyone and linked the customers' purchase order to the orders and work orders (within the system). It no longer needs to be manually linked.
    • Custom reports - for a small fee we had reports customized specifically for our company.
    • Link to Quickbooks - invoices generated directly after closure of sales order.

    Odoo

    • Ignore requests for support
    • continue to collect money from users through micro-charges; apps, supports, etc.
    • Offer no support when they do finally respond, saying that it's the app developer's duty.
    • Creates a system that forces people that are good with software systems to pay for support

    Cons

    Fishbowl

    • MRP
    • BOM creation
    • Unified interface
    Read full review

    Odoo

    • Community version is sometimes hard to maintain, needs some on-premise knowledge (IT) or having business with an Odoo partner that is sometimes expensive and unreliable.
    • Enterprise version is as expensive as other ERP in the market.
    • Reporting is horrible, not a lot of possibility to integrate seamlessly with a third party BI platform.

      Odoo

      I would give it an average rating despite being easy to use, but the user interface is very poor and not intuitive at all which makes the whole experience not that good. Also, the system is not mobile friendly at all which is annoying if you want to check something on the go.

      Support Rating

      Fishbowl

      Originally the support for Fishbowl was very poor. It was hard to get anyone to help. In the last 12 - 14 months, it has greatly improved and if it continues this way I would certainly rate it higher.

      Odoo

      Contacting support with Odoo is still slow and it takes time for support tickets to go to solved status. It requires doing all a research together with support for a complete migration or large modification, it is necessary to have deep knowledge about IT to make any modification on any pre-defined module.

      Alternatives Considered

      Fishbowl

      Fishbowl is more useful than QuickBooks Manufacturing if you operate complex manufacturing with multiple multi layered BOMS

      Odoo

      we CAME from NetSuite (and should have stayed there!!) - but we thought Odoo would be better. Brightpearl was too expensive and too slow to implement - and we needed a system that could do the Spanish Legally mandatory Accounting reports...... and even here Odoo fails as no accounts want to have ANYTHING to do with this below-average product - they only want to use PROPER accounting systems that work - strangely? WE SHOULD NEVER have chosen Odoo unfortunately. It will take us a long time to try to recover the money spent and obviously we will NEVER get the lost time and efforts invested back.....!

      Odoo

      • The integration of the support department in the sales processes was easily carried out by implementing Odoo.
      • Improved functionality and UI of the sales and logistics related processes in the company.
