Pros

Their customer service is fantastic, they respond quickly and can get you moving in the right direction right away. You get the feeling that they want to help you be successful.
The software is very easy to learn and use, along with great features and functionality. Has some great workarounds and has been able to do everything we've needed and much more.
I've evaluated a few other solutions and for the money, Finale is great. There is a learning curve and it certainly helps if you're good with excel.

Pros

They have done a wonderful job in taking care of us from learning to use it to just small mistakes here and there. The support is outstanding.
Fishbowl is very user friendly, has great support, and great integrations with our other systems.
Our company evaluated about half a dozen different inventory management systems for features, support, ease of operation, price, etc. Fishbowl was the hands down winner, and remains the champion.

Cons

All systems lack something but there are no real standouts to me right now. Having done so many system ups, I have had to find less manual or other workarounds to run this system.
Sometimes when mapping items, I start to type and a drop down menu of items appears and when I click on the correct one, the wrong one gets inputted.
I dislike that we can't delete Product Lookups from a Product ID once it's been created.

Cons

It is very frustrating when you are in the middle of something to have to force close the program and start over. This happens to everyone in our company so it is not user error or a computer error.
We have a repetitive problem with line items coming up as 0, which causes our orders to refuse to ship. It's time-consuming to repeatedly call to get them unstuck.
Horrible Company, they use to be good now they are just completely useless.

Finale Inventory logo

Finale Inventory

Finale has improved everything in our company

Reviewed 2 years ago

Finale was introduced to our company after a long, tedious process of finding and then trying to implement another IMS (Fishbowl). I was skeptical of the great reviews and claims from other users since I had really been put through the wringer by another company during implementation. After going through a demo and poking around a bit, I was sold. Importing all of the data was a breeze, the user interface...

Pros

Finale implementation is quick and pretty simple. We use it with ShipStation and the learning curve was practically non-existent because it's so intuitive. Importing data is just a matter of copying and pasting a spreadsheet into their import tool. This makes adding and updating products/customers/vendors/etc. a breeze. I also generate invoices from Finale. We have pretty long production lead times on the majority of our products so predicting stock outs is very important to us and we can trust Finale to calculate that information correctly. The basic reporting is good but the ability to customize existing reports or create your own is excellent. Most importantly, their level of customer service is absolutely top notch.

Cons

We did have some hiccups with marketplace integrations but we able to work with Finale to create workarounds that have been fine.

Finale Inventory

Finale Inventory Has Transformed Our Company

Reviewed 3 years ago

We had purchased another inventory management system (Fishbowl) prior to Finale and we struggled to get it implemented for an embarrassingly long time. Everybody in the organization that touched it, hated it... and eventually I decided to abandon it and start my search over. After looking at an endless amount of options a friend recommended Finale. I remember looking at the reviews on Capterra and...

Pros

Customer support is insanely good. It accurately tracks inventory across several warehouses and sales channels. The integration with Shipstation has revolutionized how we pick, pack and ship. Creating and tracking bills of material across many complicated assemblies is easy and intuitive. Picking using handheld scanners has virtually eliminated errors. In fact, we just went 30 days without a single report of a shipping error from a customer, and have averaged less than a 0.2% error rate in the 8 months that we've been using Finale. With our old system, the error rate was close to 3.0%. Cycle counts with handhelds have eliminated the need to close down to take inventory, we're going to be off on December 31st for the first time ever!

Cons

We had a little bit of trouble with how Finale tracks BOM of an assembly sold on a marketplace, but worked with their support to find a workaround that has been satisfactory. Even though we didn't like the way it handled it out of the box, we felt like our needs were listened to and a permenant fix is being worked on.

The customer service is very quick to respond and helpful in both fixing and explaining issues. The product itself is very intuitive to use.

The Inventory lists - I wish there was an option where you could only print the inventory under a certain location group (including inventory that has qty 0).

CSR was fantastic in helping us learn about the product and taking the time to listen to our issues/concerns. Even though we found out Fishbowl was not a great fit for us, it wasn't the fault of her. She's a very good asset to your company.

good software but I need unlimited inventory number

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

The software are included all POS feature that is needed and very easy to learn and to use. The Matrix inventory item setup is very simple and not confusing. I would pick this POS over other if not the inventory number is limited.

Cons

We need to create more inventory item, but Fishbowl is capped the inventory item number and require customer to purchase high package to get more inventory item number available. If your industry is required many inventory items and keep on grow, you are better ask for the price before moving over to use Fishbowl.

Vendor response

Fishbowl does not have, and never has had any limitations on numbers of items or transactions. A larger, more expansive feature list that confirms this can be found at https://www.fishbowlinventory.com/files/documents/fishbowl-warehouse-product-info-sheet.pdf. Fishbowl does offer two different versions of the award winning software; Fishbowl Warehouse and Fishbowl Manufacturing, but again - neither contains any limits on items or quantities. As the number of items is not capped in any way, there is no need for or options available for additional purchases to increase item limits. Please feel free to reach out to us at 800-774-7085 for help if you are in need of any training or assistance regarding use of the product.

Pros

This software is great for processing orders and managing inventory. Our inventory has never been so accurate and our processes streamlined.

Cons

The customer service agents are very nice and extremely helpful, the problem is that Fishbowl does not employ enough of them so when a problem comes up you have to send an email and wait...maybe up to 1 day which is a issue when you can't process orders until they contact you back and fix the problem. It's really the only issue I have but it is a BIG issue.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Inventory control is our biggest benefit.

Pros

The use of the dashboard as a quick overview and how modules are linked within sales orders or other modules, makes moving from one module to another easy.

Cons

Learning the program was a challenge but after a few trial and errors I can easily maneuver through the program. Also, I dislike the inability to customize reports ourselves. Paying additional fees to have reports created just to add a signature line on a packing slip is a downfall. Wish it was more user-friendly when it came to report changes.

It lets you pull inventory from multiple warehouses for an order, and commit inventory from each location. Easy sales order entry, easy invoicing.

You have to purchase every module that you will be needing. If later on you expand and need more functionality, you have to foot out more money.

Reviewed 9 months ago

The newest version seems to function much better then what we first started with. The more and more we use the software the more we're realizing its potential and able to get out of it. It is definitely improving our operations.

Pros

Able to use remotely to check inventory.

Cons

Would like to see search for part numbers improved. Currently if your looking for a vendor number in the system you would have to look it up under the supplier # column it was entered. Would like a search bar that scans the entire data base and pulls up relevant information based on your search.

Good software to boost your inventory management.

Fully functional, Fishbowl gives you features you would not find in standard inventory management software. Takes you to another level when it comes to inventory management in quickbooks, I like the order and inventory tracking features. Every transaction can be tracked with detailed reporting. Easy to manage, processing of orders quicker

Pricing is always a bummer for most people. The pricing range is a bit above average for most small businesses. Better of use for Enterprise companies.

This product is very easy to use. Our main goal was a front end order entry program with inventory management. For a manufacturing company to pull inventory in many different units of measure are a huge benefit to our company with tracking inventory consumption.

Cons

I think my only issue is having to update any custom reports every time there is a new update so your report is compatible with the version you are updating to.

Inventory Management, tracking systems, and actualizing our COGS.

Pros

It is simple, easy to use, and has everything a inventory management software should have. This is a good ERP software for a business that is just starting up and getting their resources in order.

Cons

Report features are lacking and Fishbowl's simplicity can come back to bite you. Expect to buy some training for the modules within Fishbowl - some can be confusing.

Fishbowl, Decent Software Horrible service

Reviewed 6 months ago

I do like the software, I think for what is it it is good but that is entirely overshadowed by all of the unseen costs and terrible support. Support agents that contradict each other with every request and take 7 to 10 days on average to provide a resolution.

Pros

The inventory management capabilities and connection to quickbooks

Cons

The support is by far the worst aspect. and the over lack of functionality that should be basic in todays technologies. The UI is also something out of the early 2000's
