If you’re reading this post, you’ve likely decided to integrate the Fishbowl Inventory system into your business. If so, you know Fishbowl offers one of the best comprehensive inventory solutions out there. Making the choice to use it is the easy part, though. The setup process can be a daunting task, and that’s where LilyPad comes in.

What is LilyPad for Fishbowl Inventory?

LilyPad for Fishbowl is a series of software applications and services designed by Sharpe Concepts. We help make Fishbowl easier to use. Since Sharpe Concepts is partnered with Fishbowl, all of these products are fully supported. This makes for seamless integration and maximum benefit for you. Here are a couple of ways LilyPad can help you get the most out of Fishbowl.

LilyPad Products

LilyPad offers a range of products your business can use to make sure you’re using your Fishbowl Inventory system to its full potential. These products help you simplify and streamline according to your business needs.

For example, LilyPad Commerce is an online shopping platform. It provides you with an instant website that connects directly to your Fishbowl Inventory system. When you set it up, it transfers pricing information from Fishbowl to your website. Even better, when customers shop on your site, LilyPad Commerce automatically transfers their payments to Fishbowl.

Another great LilyPad product is LilyPad Vortex. Vortex is a sales software for small and medium companies. It includes a customer portal where customers can log in to place orders at client-specific prices. Outside sales agents can also place direct orders to Fishbowl.

LilyPad Implementation Services

Aside from Fishbowl-supported products, LilyPad also offers services for Fishbowl customers. We can take the guesswork out of using your Fishbowl Inventory system. Here’s how we can help you understand and use your Fishbowl products.


We know the Fishbowl Inventory product line inside and out. To help you learn the system and prepare your employees, we offer comprehensive training. We start by working with your leadership team to make sure everyone is up to speed.

After the leadership team is ready to go, we offer training to employees. Our training experts work side by side with your employees to show them how to do their tasks using the Fishbowl system. LilyPad training can be fully remote or fully on-site, whichever format works best for you.


LilyPad also offers Fishbowl implementation coaching. In training, we teach you and your employees how to use the system. With coaching, we teach you how to optimize it for your unique business goals.

The coaching package starts with an assessment tool to identify areas of focus for your project. This is followed by four hours of remote training for those focus areas. After the training, we offer five coaching sessions. Each session addresses a specific aspect of successful implementation.

Finally, the coaching package includes two go-live reviews. During your first review, one of our experts will go over your project and point out problems you may face before the software goes live. During the second review, the expert will help you take care of any issues that come up after you go live.
