    Stated simply, Fishbowl is the best in it's class, period! Easy to use, incredibly effective and affordable Inventory and Order Management Software.

    Pros

    Fishbowl offers and unparalleled ease of use. Our whole team was trained and up and running in hours. You simply won't find another software package with the range of features and reliability at this price range. It easily bests other software packages costing 3 times what Fishbowl costs!

    Cons

    Their call back support could be a little faster, but it's still likely better than most software companies.

    It has the potential to be a really strong entry level MRP if the reporting and label design/printing functions are improved to allow users to create their own reports and labels inside Fishbowl instead of having to bolt on third party software.

    Pros

    The entry and setup are easy to use. It is a pretty simple MRP.

    Cons

    The reporting and label creation/printing capabilities are weak and cumbersome. There is no PLM functionality. It would be nice to setup prototype BOMs and then walk that product through a workflow that saves all of the changes, revisions and approvals throughout the product history.

    Reviewed on 25/04/2022

    Pros

    Integration with our manufacturing process was easy. Purchases, Receiving, Bill of materials and Work Orders fulfilled our needs.

    Cons

    Reports provided are too basic, no help documentation to create your own reports. If you need a detailed or custom reports you have to purchase them apart.
