Fishbowl Inventory (formerly ExpressTech Holdings) is an Orem, Utah-based software company that develops and publishes inventory management software and related software. [1]

Fishbowl was formed in 2001 by Chuck and Beverly Hale, two business owners in Salt Lake City. The pair invested $3 million into the software company and went through several CEOs in rapid succession.[2] In 2004, they hired consultant David K. Williams, who was able to reorganize the company, eliminate its debt and prime it for rapid growth.[3]

The company's flagship product, Fishbowl Inventory, is an inventory management software that integrates QuickBooks. It has since grown to include a manufacturing inventory system and mobile resources for warehousing. [4][5] In 2003, Fishbowl Inventory was the top-selling inventory management add-on to QuickBooks.[6]

Fishbowl has donated its software to local elementary schools and employees regularly engage in community service to Provo, Orem and other local communities. The company has also partnered with several Utah groups and companies to create the Courage Above Mountains Foundation, which provides job education and additional services to low-income mothers and other people in need, as well as local resources for entrepreneurs.[7][8]

Fishbowl has earned a number of business awards for its revenue growth from organizations such as Deloitte, MountainWest Capital, and Red Herring Americas.[9][10][11]
