In a stunning move, Fishbowl got its new cloud-based solution listed on the QuickBooks Apps store yesterday. And just four months after Fishbowl Online launched!

Up until now, all of the inventory apps available to SMBs have been basic at best. But Fishbowl Online brings advanced features to the table. Anyway, stay tuned to learn more.
