Fishbowl Inventory vs. QStock Inventory: Who Will Help You More?
Small businesses have long relied on QuickBooks software to help their company achieve affordable but sound accounting practices. This software has become extremely useful for small businesses in many industries; however, those that also need efficient inventory management solutions often find that QuickBooks software alone doesn’t provide all the tools they need. Because of this, many companies have looked to add-on programs for their QuickBooks software that is specific to inventory management. There are many products on the market that offer inventory solutions for QuickBooks, but not all provide the same benefits.
Here is a brief comparison of the benefits that QStock Inventory offers versus those offered by Fishbowl, another product that offers added inventory management for QuickBooks users:
One of the biggest differentiations between QStock Inventory and Fishbowl is that all purchase orders and sales orders are handled within QuickBooks when using QStock Inventory. Whereas Fishbowl takes data out of the Quickbooks application to be used in their own software, QStock is truly integrated with the program, preserving data to ensure accuracy and to minimize redundancies. Fishbowl doesn’t provide as much flexibility with order management.
For example, when items are received in the warehouse, purchase orders made in QuickBooks are instantly transferred to QStock, where multiple scanners can receive it. Receipts for those items are pushed back and updated in QuickBooks.
Additionally, QStock provides more options for wireless technology, not only providing your business with more accurate and efficient inventory processes, but also cutting down on labor and paper costs as well. This benefits transactions taking place in the warehouse with receiving, shipping, and material handling since they are processed with wireless RF scanners. These scanners can instantly update all information within QuickBooks, eliminating lag time that usually occurs with the manual entry and paper process.
QStock Inventory used along with QuickBooks is the most robust and dynamic options for businesses who want to improve efficiency and accuracy with their inventory processes. QStock is the solution for ultimate order data integrity. Less time spent on inventory and recovering from human error means companies have more capacity to focus on growth and productivity.
QStock Inventory is QuickBooks Certified and integrates seamlessly with the software to enhance its performance. To see for yourself how QStock Inventory outperforms other QuickBooks add-ons for inventory management, view our video demonstrations of how QStock can enhance your QuickBooks experience.
