Word is spreading about how Fishbowl Hosted Services helps small businesses. In his article “Fishbowl Adds Hosted Inventory Geared to Small Business,” author Thor Olavsrud mentions several benefits of using this new service.
How Hosted Services Helps
Fishbowl launched Fishbowl Hosted Services in February. Olavsrud sums it up nicely by saying, “The service is designed specifically to host small- to medium-sized businesses’ servers, allowing them to stay focused on their core business instead of worrying about time-consuming and expensive IT issues.”
Small-business owners need to carefully manage their priorities so they have enough time to focus on what they do best. Information technology is one of the most expensive and essential parts of doing business. That’s why many small businesses outsource their server needs to companies that specialize in IT.
As an added benefit, users can have the newest versions of Fishbowl Inventory, QuickBooks and Microsoft Office pre-installed on their servers so they don’t have to worry about the hassle of setting everything up. Users must purchase Fishbowl Inventory and QuickBooks separately from the hosting service, if they want it pre-installed on their server.
Hosted Services Prices
The price of Fishbowl Hosted Services depends on the number of users. For 2-5 users, it’s $375 per month, plus a $375 setup fee. For 6-10 users, it’s $575 per month, plus an $875 setup fee. For 11-20 users, it’s $875 per month, plus the same setup fee as for 6-10 users. Companies aren’t bound by a long-term contract. They can discontinue the service at any time.
