Logistical Benefits

  • Handheld Devices: When you are doing work in a warehouse, you don’t want to be carrying around bulky laptops, or pages of reports.  Nor do you want to have to memorize information from a computer screen, and try to remember what you saw on the computer while walking around the warehouse.  Having a small, handheld device that holds all of the information can be helpful for completing your warehousing tasks in a simpler, more efficient way.
  • Scan or Key Data: LilyPad Mobile Warehouse will allow you to scan barcodes throughout your warehouse in order to perform your needed activities.  Or, if you don’t have a barcode available, you can type in the information you need.
  • Scan Master Pack Quantities: If your inventory comes in Master Packs (a package that is then broken down into your standard Units of Measure), LilyPad Mobile Warehouse gives you the ability to scan the Master Pack, and then the inventory is automatically received at the correct quantity and Unit of Measure.
  • 2D Barcode Scanning: 2D barcoding is becoming more common in almost every industry.  And guess what: LilyPad Mobile Warehouse allows you to scan 2D barcodes, as well as 1D barcodes.
  • Mobile Custom Reports:  For those of you who like to see reports while in the warehouse, LilyPad Mobile Warehouse gives you access to the reports that you need.

There are many software benefits to using LilyPad Mobile Warehouse.  Here are some of the functions that can be performed with your handheld device:

  • Pick, Pack, and Ship Fishbowl Orders

All of these functions become simpler,and more accurate when you are scanning your parts in the warehouse.  In addition to the ease of use, LilyPad Mobile Warehouse will submit the information to Fishbowl in real time…which means that Fishbowl is up-to-date at all times.

LilyPad Mobile Sales for Fishbowl Inventory

LilyPad Mobile Sales allows you to extend Fishbowl Inventory to a whole new audience: your customers.  This is possible because LilyPad Mobile Sales connects directly to your Fishbowl database, but is accessible from any device that is connected to the internet.  With this accessibility, your sales team can create orders while standing in front of your customers.  Or, even better, your customers can log in and place their own orders in a secure, controlled environment.  Let’s explore these features:

Giving Your Sales Team the Freedom of Mobility

In many industries, the effectiveness of your sales team comes from their face-to-face interactions with your customers.  Having an edge over the competition can become the deciding factor that determines if your customers are going to choose to continue to do business with you.

Imagine giving your Salespeople the ability to place an order as they sit with your customers, knowing that the order will be sent to Fishbowl as soon as it is submitted in LilyPad Mobile Sales.  Not only does this create an efficient way to create your sales orders, but your salespeople will also be able to move on to the next customer, rather than trying to enter the sales orders once they leave.

Let Your Customers Do the Work

In LilyPad Mobile Sales, you can create user logins for your customers.  With these logins, your customers can enter their own sales orders at any time, and from anywhere they have internet access.  Because you have the ability to control what products y
our customers can see, and since their pricing rules are automatically applied, there is no risk in allowing them to create their own orders.

LilyPad Mobile Sales, or LMS for short, gives you the ability to take Fishbowl Inventory to your customers.  This can be especially helpful for those of you who have an outside sales force.  LilyPad Mobile Sales can be used on a tablet or smart phone, and will allow your sales people to create orders while they are on-site with your customers.

Another great feature of LilyPad Mobile Sales is the ability to create users for your customers.  In other words, your customers can log onto your system, and place orders themselves.  They don’t have to call, email, or fax (do people still do that?) an order to you.  Instead, they log into LilyPad Mobile Sales, place their order, and within moments, the order is in Fishbowl Inventory.
