Real Time INVENTORY Visability
Each User can create their own Dashboard that they see when logging in. This can show reports, graphs or a list of transactions that need actioning.
Multi-Location Stock Control
With Fishbowl, you can create unlimited Location Groups (Warehouses) and within each Location Group, create your desired stock locations. Even create a prefered Sort/Pick Order so that you can print Pick Slips in the most efficient order for your team on the warehouse floor.
View all of your inventory
View your inventory across all locations in a single window.
Move inventory with ease
Have the ability to move stock from a bulk location to a pick face or create Transfer Order to ship stock Interstate.
If you send stock to customers on a Consignment basis, Fishbowl has a dedicated module to manage that.
From creating a Transfer Order to move the stock to the customer to creating a Sales Order and Invoicing them for stock consumed. This can all be done from the one screen.
You can even utilise a schedule to automatically email your consignment customers what you are showing as stock on hand for them each month.
Manage Customer Orders with ease
Create a Quote or Sales Order with all the customer’s special pricing. Search for an item by Part number, a word in the description or scan a barcode.
Take prepayment for the order and have Fishbowl automatically email your customer an Order Confirmation before Picking.
With Fishbowl’s Pick screen, the warehouse can identify from a glance, all backorders as a red dot and partial backorders as a yellow dot.
As stock becomes available, the colour will change – indicating that the backorder can now be fulfilled.
As the warehouse receives stock, it is also possible for them to see which transactions are waiting on stock to be received.
Customer Special Pricing
No more maintaining customer special pricing in spreadsheets or taking hours to look through previous transactions. With Fishbowl’s Pricing Rules Module, all special pricing can be easily maintained.
From customer groups to customer specific; product group or product specific; calculated as a mark down, margin or mark-up, quantities breaks or date driven. It’s all there.
Pick, Pack & Ship with Fishbowl
The warehouse picking process is where Fishbowl comes into its own!
With the list of picks to be completed showing in a list on the left-hand side, the warehouse can view in realtime their to-do list and prioritise this list by Due Date, Carrier or Priority. They can start each pick individually, in a batch or group multiple orders together into a grouped pick ticket. The time saved using this module alone are huge.
If your business track stock by serial number, batch or expiry date you can either pre-commit the tracking to an order before starting the pick or assign the tracking upon completion.
Once orders are Picked, they progress to Shipping. From here the warehouse can split the order into boxes or pallets and record consignment numbers or even integrate directly with freight software.
On the shipping module, Fishbowl will generate a Packing List and Invoice, which depending on your preferences, can even notify the customer that their order has been shipped.
With Fishbowl GO, the Ship Step can be replaced with a driver Delivery function. This enables the driver to attain a customer’s signature on their phone or tablet enabling you to store it as confirmation against the Shipment in Fishbowl for future reference.
Purchase the right items, at the right time
Reorder points can be set manually against an item, imported from a spreadsheet, or use Fishbowl Reorder Point to calculate and maintain reorder points over time based on actual sales and usage history; taking each supplier lead time and order interval into account.
Set “Order up to” levels to acheive the best “Min-Max” stock ordering control.
Enter your Purchase Orders directly into Fishbowl or utilise some of Fishbowl’s more advanced tools such as SO to PO, MO to PO or the Auto PO wizard to have Fishbowl create your purchase orders for you before sending to suppliers.
Smart automation makes for huge time savings.
With any warehouse, Receiving stock correctly is the starting point for accurate stock control.
With the dedicated Receiving Screen, the warehouse can print off a Receiving / Putaway Sheet and check in items as they are unpacked to a location, and receive an item partially or in full.
Once stock is Received, not only can you match this to your supplier’s Invoice, which then gets sent to Xero, QuickBooks Online or Reckon Accounts, the Reconcile Wizard will also let you add all the freight and external costs of the order and apportion that cost to the items Received so you know what your stock really costs you – resulting in accurate margin reporting.
Fishbowl’s Sales and Purchasing process has all the multi-currency features.
Setup the currencies you trade with, assign them to Customers and Vendors and Fishbowl will do the rest.
Our business has been growing for a number of years, exponentially. So we were looking at ways to improve our business processes and in particular across our warehouse. One of the issues we had was basically with an accounting system which was just exactly that. It didn’t really handle warehousing as such and all the requirements of a warehouse system. The inventory management was a key thing and that’s been provided by Fishbowl. It’s also allowed us to standardise our business processes which was something lacking in a business which is growing, and we needed to have systems in place to stabilise the business.
Since we’ve stabilised the Warehouse and it’s basic Warehousing functions, we are now looking at things like a web-based sales application for sales team etc. We’re expanding beyond the basics of what we originally expected of Fishbowl. Over the next 6-12 months we’ll go to the next level of development in our business because we’ll be using things which integrate well with Fishbowl.
