Business Challenges & Needs

The business was using a ERP inventory and manufacturing program, however after using the ERP system for 9 months it had become clear that the software was not meeting their requirements. The software was very rigid, the financial reporting was difficult to use and the ongoing costs of the software and user support was becoming an issue. The business needed a solution that would be less time consuming and more user friendly and cost effective for the business to implement and maintain.

The Ocean Support program for user support on Fishbowl Inventory is excellent. I always have my questions answered in a timely fashion which enables us to get on with running our business.

The Solution

The business made the decision to replace the existing ERP software package with the combination of Fishbowl Inventory (Manufacturing Edition) and Reckon Accounts (formerly QuickBooks). The decision was also made to make a prompt implementation changing over the inventory and manufacturing arm of the business at the same time as the accounting and payroll function.

The Results

Beachport Liquid Minerals found an immediate benefit to switching over to the combination of Fishbowl Inventory and Reckon Accounts as a complete solution for their business. They found the company was saving money almost immediately with the cost savings in software maintenance for upgrades as well as time with the processes in Fishbowl for the manufacturing of finished products and the tracking of batch control on those product.

Another huge advantage was found in the ease of financial reporting that Reckon Accounts offered compared to their previous ERP solution. The Accounts department can now run all financial information with a few clicks while maintaining the inventory control procedures needed to track stock across multiple locations.

Beachport Liquid Minerals also found that the Ocean Support Program was an essential part of having their business running optimally, any time they had a question pertaining to Fishbowl Inventory, the support was fast and always resolved any questions the company may have had.

The businesses manufacturing processes means that the finished product is first made into a bulk batch and then subsequently decanted into different drum sizes. The ease of setting up Bills of Material as well as the printing of Work Orders has meant that production staff have been able to track and control the manufacturing process as well as ensuring that batch control is maintained right from raw materials through to our finished products.
