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.

Hilary C.

Fishbowl is very user friendly, has great support, and great integrations with our other systems.

CR

Carrie R.

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.

Pros

Our Coach was SUPER helpful with the initial setup though. The 24/7 Chat support has been great as well.

SM

Spencer M.

It's excellent when it's all inclusive in quoting to pricing to proofing all the way to invoicing. The tracking makes it great to make sure customers are well taken care of.

Lindsay M.

Best decision I've ever made. Not only are we more competitive with the market now, thanks to ShopVox I can focus on quick and easy quotes so that the customer doesn't have to wait till we get back.

Lakshan D.

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.

IR

Inga R.

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.

MC

Maggie C.

Horrible Company, they use to be good now they are just completely useless.

KH

Kevin H.

Cons

ShopVox seems to miss some functionality. For example, to get the full 100% functionality, I would have to pay for some of the features.

AR

Anonymous Reviewer

We desperately need to be able to ship a partial on a line item without workarounds.

LB

Lyn B.

Then how to pay to employees. How can be it issue for you if we have 1000s customers.

Fishbowl Inventory & Manufacturing: Not great for custom manufacturers...

Reviewed 4 years ago

Inventory management is a breeze, great for warehousing and manufacturing bigger build products, the modules, and UI is well thought out, and very logical, they did a great job with it. They have great eCommerce integrations they added on for magento and amazon which makes it more powerful. The fact that you buy the product up front (with a year of support that can be renewed) makes it seem like you are saving money by owning the software, but you'll need to upgrade every year until the software does what you want it.

Pros

It's great if you are manufacturing the same thing over and over, so you need 500 or 1000 widgets made the same way. It's a pretty powerful tool for warehousing and inventory. It costs for just the warehousing, plus users and add-ons. They'll give you a discount if you ask them, but you almost should just go with a saas program you'll get quicker updates. fishbowl you can save lots of money down the road if you don't buy there support package. They have a pretty good product development team, but it takes them at least a year it seems like to roll out any useful new features you talk to them about.

Cons

Very challenging to set up, learning curve is huge in my opinion. The BOM stages work for the most part, but you'll spend a lot of time in a sandbox database seeing if what you want works (if your doing multi stage builds) If your doing 1 to 100 of anything, and what your making varies order to order, I'd recommend some other software like ordoo, shopvox, or corbridge. They are alot quicker to set up on the
