Fishbowl Inventory System Administrator Guide – 1st Edition

Fishbowl Inventory System Administrator Guide – 1st Edition

When I help a company deploy Fishbowl Inventory, invariably I need to have a sit-down with the company’s System Administrator or IT Company. I found myself saying the same things over and over, so I decided that it was time to put pen to paper and put together a small guide.

Today I am proud to announce the first edition of the Fishbowl Inventory System Administrator guide. As time progresses and the Fishbowl Inventory system improves I will add more information to this one page document. It may eventually balloon to more than one page, but for now I feel this is the most important information available that a System Administrator will need to know.

Many times I’ve come across companies unhappy with Fishbowl, and its simply due to insufficient hardware. What is “good enough” for files and QuickBooks is not good enough for Fishbowl Inventory to put it bluntly.

In the coming week I will be preparing a guide on Solid State Disks, and why we should use them. I typically recommend solid state disks when IT budget is tight, and there is no motivation to improve the Fishbowl Inventory server.
