Fishbowl Inventory Manufacturing Option Ideal MRP for Small Manufacturers


Orem, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/17/2013 -- Fishbowl’s Manufacturing Option is a powerful inventory software solution for manufacturers. It performs nearly all of the functions of a Material Requirements Planning (MRP) system including monitoring quantities of raw materials and end products in stock, optimizing inventory levels and keeping them balanced, and speeding up the processes of producing and delivering products.

The only part of an MRP that Fishbowl’s Manufacturing Option does not include is scheduling production activity. Fishbowl does have a calendar function, so manufacturers can schedule many things – just not one dedicated to manufacturing jobs.

The Manufacturing Option allows customers to manage vendors, track parts and materials in multiple warehouses, and set up automatic work orders, bills of materials, manufacture orders.

Fishbowl Inventory is the most requested inventory management solution for seamless integration with QuickBooks, and is a popular standalone solution for organizations or enterprises looking to track assets. For users of QuickBooks it provides the same advanced features, flexibility, and mobile management control larger organizations require.

QuickBooks owns an estimated seventy-eight (78%) percent of the accounting software market. Analysts estimate there are more than 7.1 million copies of QuickBooks in use. By conservative estimates, more than forty (40%) percent of these organizations directly need or could strongly benefit from inventory control.

Fishbowl Inventory has been the most frequently requested inventory solution for QuickBooks users for more than a decade. As small-to-medium companies grow and face increasing competition, the flexible cost-effective combination of QuickBooks and Fishbowl grows alongside SMBs regardless of the industry sector. These smaller firms need the same kind of inventory management large organizations enjoy at a more affordable price.

Manufacturers benefit in many ways by using Fishbowl’s Manufacturing Option. Fishbowl provides several competitive advantages, including configurable bills of materials, instructions, and stages; tracks tens of thousands of parts and integrates with QuickBooks.

As manufacturers grow and expand their product line, increasingly complex processes must be coordinated. Fishbowl simplifies processes by automatically generating manufacture orders, work orders, bills of materials and other essential documents when customer orders arrive. Each bill of materials can include detailed instructions, multiple stages of production, and other features to make every manufacturing job more efficient.

Fishbowl offers custom reports, custom shopping cart integrations, custom data integration, and database-related application linking and eliminates data entry errors. With simple features of barcode scanning, companies easily receive inventory into systems or records as it comes off the carrier vehicle, make adjustments to quantities being received, and easily enter tracking information in real time. Fishbowl software significantly increases accuracy and worker productivity.
