Business Challenges & Needs

With the rapid expansion of their business, Alfred noticed that even though Reckon Accounts is a powerful accounting tool, it did not meet the needs for inventory and warehouse management, and this was hampering their supply chain process, reducing the service levels they could provide their customers. Durmaz started to develop large costs due to these restrictions and inefficiencies in not using dedicated inventory software solution.

Within the first 4 months of implementation, our initial investment has been recouped 5 times over.

The Solution

Durmaz implemented Fishbowl to meet the needs of their business, and signed up to the Ocean Support program, to provide help to the staff when they needed it. Durmaz received on-site training from a Fishbowl Inventory Software Specialist before implementing Fishbowl to ensure the staff would get the most from the improved processes.

The Results

The benefits of using Fishbowl have had an enormous impact on Durmaz. Through both the shipping and receiving processes that Fishbowl Warehouse makes the user follow, they have increased their pick efficiency rates in the warehouse by nearly 30%. The picking list that is generated in Fishbowl organises the products based by location for the fastest route on the warehouse floor. This has enabled Durmaz to significantly reduce overtime hours that are paid to warehouse staff, and the number of staff required to pick and pack the current order volumes. Most importantly for Alfred, it has also enabled their staff to accurately track orders correctly, from issuing to shipping processes making staff more accountable for their responsibilities, which lead to decreased errors from the warehouse staff. With the implementation of Fishbowl, and reverting Reckon Accounts to finances only, Alfred can now see more accurate financial figures, as staff can no longer sell stock they do not have in stock. Accurate inventory data from the Fishbowl Monitor module, and Fishbowl’s order management process helps staff to complete orders correctly by ensuring they follow best practice procedures for the entire warehouse workflow.
