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: The Perfect Fishbowl Inventory Add-On

Fishbowl Inventory has been touting itself as the #1 QuickBooks Add-On for over a decade, now.  While that may be true, you might not be aware of the #1 add-on to Fishbowl Inventory: LilyPad.LilyPad Logo

Sharpe Concepts, the maker of the LilyPad products, has been creating solutions for Fishbowl users since almost the beginning of Fishbowl.  While we don’t have room to describe all of the products, we would like to tell you about two of them: LilyPad Mobile Warehouse, and LilyPad Mobile Sales.

LilyPad Mobile Warehouse

LilyPad Mobile Warehouse, or LMW for short, allows you to take Fishbowl Inventory into your warehouse by making the following features available:

  • Scan or Key Data
  • Pick, Pack, and Ship Fishbowl Orders
  • Receive Inventory from Fishbowl Orders
  • Move, Cycle Count, Add, and Scrap Inventory

LilyPad Mobile Sales

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.

This can be a huge time saver!  And, it helps reduce the problems of manual order entry.
