Fishbowl Inventory Proves Perfect for Plumbing Kitchen and Bath Company


Orem, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/09/2013 -- For 80 years, a family-owned hardware store, Griffiths Plumbing Kitchen and Bath, has done all of its inventory management by hand. But soon after the British Columbia-based company was placed into the hands of its fourth-generation steward, 28-year-old Damon Griffiths, they decided to change the way they did business.

Griffiths Plumbing and Bath sells more than 3,600 parts and products. Because they had spent so many years managing inventory on paper and in Excel spreadsheets, it took four months to get all the inventory data organized into a CSV file to import into Fishbowl Inventory. Now that the initial effort was made, the company is seeing positive results.

One of the most important things Griffiths is now able to track is the cost of equipment and parts his plumbers use when they go out and work directly with customers. With Fishbowl Inventory he knows whether or not the company is charging enough to cover the cost of all the supplies and labor at on-site jobs. As the company tracks costs and optimizes inventory levels, it is able to grow faster than ever before while keeping loyal customers happy.
