Inventory Christmas Carol: I Saw Three Shipments

Merry Christmas in two days! In honor of the most wonderful holiday of the year, I have written a song. I took the lyrics to the classic Christmas Carol “I Saw Three Ships,” and I turned them into an ode to Fishbowl Inventory’s Reconcile module, which I call “I Saw Three Shipments.” This follows a tradition I have of writing Christmas poems and songs every year starting in 2010. Here is the original song so you can get the tune into your head as you read the lyrics below: I Saw Three Shipments I saw three shipments come mailing in Near Christmas Day, near Christmas Day; I saw three shipments come mailing in Near Christmas Day in the morning. Pray, whither came those shipments three? Where would you say, where would you say? Pray, whither came those shipments three? I need you to be informing. I’ll check my product tracking report The Fishbowl way, the Fishbowl way; I’ll check my product tracking report. Oh my, I see there’s a warning. The warning bells begin to ring, To my dismay, to my dismay; The warning bells begin to ring. Missing items it’s reporting. I’ll open the Receive module Without delay, without delay; I’ll open the Receive module And find out what is occurring. I’ll reconcile my order and I’ll partly pay, I’ll partly pay; I’ll reconcile my order and New numbers I’ll be recording. Fishbowl and QuickBooks will reflect Each change I make, each change I make; Fishbowl and QuickBooks will reflect The data I am importing. I solved a major problem then. Let’s shout hooray, let’s shout hooray; I solved a major problem then With Fishbowl Inventory. From all of us here at Fishbowl, we hope your Christmas holiday will be filled with warmth, family, thanksgiving, spirit, and a few laughs.
