About Us

Who We Are

We are Customer First
We focus on exceeding our customers’ expectations. Every customer. Every time.  Our walls of customer reference letters are a testament to our success in putting our customers first.

We are Ambitious
We work hard. We play hard. We are problem-solvers by our very nature. We do not rest until we have delivered what we promised – and often more.

We are Lean
We follow the lean principle, which means we maximize customer value while minimizing waste. Good is never good enough; we are always striving to be better. We believe in "never re-inventing the wheel", so we build our knowledge into our solutions.

We are Committed to Giving Back
We support the communities we serve by giving back. We contribute to several non-profit organizations like the
Toys for Tots annual toy drive, Memorial Blood Centers, Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota, Children’s Cancer Research Fund, Greg Marzolf Jr. Foundation … to name only a few.

What We Do

We help our customers deliver the right information to the right people at the right time, even if they don't know they need it. Founded in 1999, our software and services focus on Oracle Universal Content Management and the PTC Product Development System.

Through our expertise and solutions, we help our customers harness the knowledge of both their employees and systems to do more with less. Whether this means launching a new website or intranet, helping teams collaborate, delivering engineering drawings and data to the mainstream enterprise, or automating slow, paper-based business processes, Fishbowl makes it all happen
