Fishbowl: The Warehouse Management Myth Buster

Small-business leaders should remember that “No matter how efficient your employees are, managing space and maintaining inventory with ad-hoc spreadsheets, paper-based operations, or legacy systems doesn’t provide the accuracy, or visibility, into the supply chain that your managers need to succeed.”

Myth answer, QuickBooks Inventory ManagementThat’s according to a white paper I recently read, entitled “Debunking the Top Eight Myths Surrounding Small-Business Warehouse Management Systems.” As I read it, I noticed that Fishbowl is the answer to basically all of the myths about warehouse management systems.

Fishbowl is the most requested manufacturing and warehouse management solution for QuickBooks users. It is a good tool for small and mid-size businesses, wholesalers, manufacturers and more.

I’ll cover just a few of the myths discussed in the white paper.

A Matter of Time

The first myth is: “A warehouse management system will take months, even up to a year, to install, and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in consulting and service fees.”

Fishbowl easily clears up this myth. It has numerous training videos and seminars to help companies get started with the inventory management software. Also, it integrates completely with QuickBooks, so QuickBooks users can keep using the accounting software they know and love while adding a whole new set of inventory management features to it.

A Matter of Scale

The second myth is: “Any warehouse management system that fits our business now will be too small for us in a couple of years.”

Fishbowl is flexible and scalable. It can meet the needs of a small company for an affordable price and then grow in its capabilities as the company’s needs change and expand.

A Matter of Money

The third myth is: “Warehouse management system software is too expensive for small businesses.”

While this may be true for high-end inventory management software, it’s not true for Fishbowl. Fishbowl offers affordable prices for its software and services. It’s specifically designed to help small businesses take the next step to start finding more success by controlling their expenses and mastering their inventory.
