How does it work?

Fishbowl is a software integration system that connects multiple solutions based software systems to communicate with each other seamlessly without having to worry about duplicate data entries in both accounting and inventory systems. For example, when a sale is made on your Web Shop Manager e-commerce website, it gets transferred to Fishbowl as a sales order. At the same time, it also gets recorded in a desktop or online accounting solution, and a shipper is informed that a package is picked, packed and waiting to be shipped. With the ability to integrate with both QuickBooks Online & Xero, it also provides small and midsize businesses access to their accounting information anywhere on a Mac, PC, tablet, and smartphones.
