Ten years ago, two products debuted that would change the way small businesses do business. One was QuickBooks. The other was Fishbowl.
QuickBooks gave small businesses access to affordable accounting tools that made their job much easier. Finally, entrepreneurs could quickly create invoices, keep up with their finances on a daily basis, and still find time to run and grow their businesses.
The press release “Intuit Celebrates 10 Years of QuickBooks Success” offers some impressive statistics about QuickBooks. Companies have entered more than $5 trillion in revenue and $1.3 trillion in expenses through QuickBooks. That’s trillion, not billion or million. Amazing, huh? They’ve also processed more than 155 million invoices through this accounting software. QuickBooks is a popular, powerful accounting tool!
Thanks to its success, QuickBooks attracted a host of add-on programs from third parties. Fishbowl stands out among these because it was one of the first to become a QuickBooks Gold Developer, which is the highest honor Intuit gives to third-party software developers. After its debut in 2001, Fishbowl soon became the most popular inventory management software for QuickBooks.
Fishbowl offers QuickBooks inventory software for small businesses, and QuickBooks manufacturing software for manufacturers, in particular. Fishbowl integrates seamlessly with QuickBooks, so small businesses can avoid double data entry, discrepancies between their accounting and inventory records, and other problems. They also save a lot of time.
It’s incredible that two of the most useful small-business tools debuted at about the same time. Happy birthday, Fishbowl and QuickBooks! Get a free inventory software demo to see why Fishbowl is the #1 QuickBooks manufacturing software.
