  • Inventory Management.
  • Ingredient and Recipe Management.
  • Cost Control and Variation.
  • Useability is a little dated with the UI.
  • Linking some of their modules together that don't currently link
  • A quicker onboarding would be appreciated, but there is a lot to learn so I understand.

  • Reporting: Many of the reports that are provided for free with Fishbowl are useless in the context of everyday manufacturing and production planning. Some reports provide inaccurate information. In order to use get useful and correct reports, outside developers must be paid (a new or modified report may cost anywhere from $150 to $2000)
  • Customer service can be hit or miss. In our experience, a knowledgeable person is rarely available, but for the most part customer service has no idea how real manufacturing works to provide reasonable answers to fix Fishbowl shortfalls.

  • 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.
  • In some instances when the sales orders contain "non inventory items," it is difficult to split up these items (i.e. design contract items) once they have been put into the system. The work flow is not intuitive to know what needs to be backed out, etc. For example, if a sales order is placed with a contract for $1000 but the next day we need to bill out only $600 ($400 later) - the entire $1000 gets billed out and can't be retracted.
  • Shipping memos/packing lists - the link between the Quickbooks invoice number would be nice.
  • Adding files to the vendor/part area, so I don't need to go to our PLM system to get the files.
