Fishbowl img


Fishbowl offers the #1 manufacturing and warehouse management solutions for QuickBooks. It integrates with dozens of other software and hardware solutions to automate many of your business processes. Fishbowl allows many solutions to work together to produce amazing results. If you’re working with QuickBooks, UPS, eBay, Salesforce, and/or many other solutions, you’ll be able to work with all of them with the help of Fishbowl.

By themselves, all of these solutions do a good job at automating individual processes. Fishbowl makes use of their focused features to keep your inventory records up to date and provide other benefits. If you have the same products displayed on multiple e-commerce portals, such as Amazon, eBay, Magento, Shopify, and BigCommerce, you might run into trouble if you receive several orders close together. This could lead to accidentally committing the same items in your inventory to different orders. To help you prevent a situation like this, connect all of your e-commerce accounts with Fishbowl and then after a sale is made through one, you will be quickly informed about it so you can update the available quantity across the others.

Fishbowl is the #1 manufacturing and warehouse management software solutions for QuickBooks users. Fishbowl integrates seamlessly with every desktop version of QuickBooks, from Pro to Enterprise. It also integrates with two online accounting solutions: QuickBooks Online and Xero. As companies grow, they often think they have to leave their accounting solution in favor of a more expensive solution to take their business to the next level. The combination of Fishbowl and QuickBooks or Xero provides an integrated software solution similar to ones that can cost two to three times as much and are bloated with features you will never use.
