Boxstorm: cloud-based inventory management from Fishbowl

It's official: Boxstorm is now Fishbowl Drive

How Boxstorm Works | Boxstorm

Boxstorm has both a web version, and mobile app. It’s just like logging into your email account – except you’re taking inventory. The computer and phone both connect into a central database in the cloud where your information is stored. Anything you do with one, immediately updates the other. You take inventory directly from your phone by tapping or by scanning. Any changes immediately update all other devices since they are logged into one database. The computer version contains 100% of all features, while the mobile app is scaled back to make it user friendly.
