    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.

    I have been using QB desktop and QB online since their beginning, and I feel it is very user-friendly. I do feel that there should be an online free tutorial for every NEW QB user. I have found that some NEW users do not fully understand the system.

    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.

    Intuit

    • Made for small to mid-sized product-based businesses.
    • Once you use the program, you will be amazed at how important the tool is and how it can be used to analyze and manipulate numbers.
    • Saves a lot of time and money than if you do all the things manually.

    • We still depend upon third party services for uploading bank feeds.
    • Few banks do not provide bank feeds, converting PDF's to bank feeds is challenge.
    • If Quick Enterprise can build its own utility where we can convert PDFs to bank feeds. That would be great.

      We've been using QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions from when the business started, 11 years ago. I don't see us changing programs any time soon as it is working pretty well for us now. It would be extremely time consuming to start from scratch with a new accounting or inventory management program.

      I like the QuickBooks Enterprise edition so much I moved my company to it this year. I like the overall functionality of the program and I am very familiar with the user interface which makes my job easier. One of the things I dislike about the online version it is not modeled after the desktop edition and I have a hard time getting around in the program.

      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.

      Very rare do I call the Quickbooks Enterprise Solutions support staff and I get a customer service associate quickly. On average, my wait time is near an hour, and at times even longer. After spending the first three minutes discussing my problem, they then begin to poke and prod around, sometimes the questions continue. But 80% of the time, the problem is over their head and they have to escalate the issue. The only problem is this escalation arrives usually after spending forty-five minutes poking and proding around but learning nothing. In short, my experience is rarely all that well, let alone great

      If you're loading QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions onto a computer that you're going to directly log into, you should be able to do it yourself. If you are going to connect to a server through a network or remote connection, you should probably have a professional IT person set it up for you.

      Sage is offline, very cumbersome to work with and does not have the type of features that quickbooks has. Sage was pretty horrible to work with. Trying to find reports was awful and running payroll was difficult. Quickbooks is far superior to Sage and would never recommend Sage to anyone.

      Return on Investment

      Fishbowl

      • Positive: Decreased time spent on copy/pasting in spreadsheets.
      • Positive: Easier to analyze costs and guarantee efficiency.
      • Negative: Time to get it up and running is really difficult to work with.

      • Meets our needs for invoicing, saves manual process resulting in one staff position reduction
      • Onsite install saves us several thousand dollars.
      • Inventory has caused an external processing and data entry expense - this costs a couple of thousand dollars initially and now annually is a cost of $2,000 labor.
      • Statements that are not reflective of individual customer terms render some customers' statments useless.
      • Vendor payment management has eliminated late fees saving several hundred dollars per year.
      • The new licensing scheme has us looking at competitive systems and we are finding more than we expected at much less cost.
      • Customer support for assistance on older versions to recover the admin password cost us 4 months of delay and at least five thousand dollars in staff time.
