At The International Surface Event (TISE) tradeshow in Las Vegas, QFloors presented its new browser-based cloud software, QPro POS+, as a solution for smaller dealers, with unique features particularly aimed to hardwood floor dealers.
“It used to be that flooring-industry-specific software was not always affordable nor feasible for a small flooring dealer. There’s a huge number of people out there who are still trying to run their businesses only using QuickBooks or Excel or even pen and paper, and not enjoying the time savings and efficiencies that flooring-specific technologies can deliver,” said Chad Ogden, QFloors President. “QPro POS+ changes that.”
Starting at $40 per month, per user, QPro POS+ is intended to fill that gap. It provides benefits such as square feet and square yard capabilities, electronic integrations with suppliers via fcB2B, instant on-the-fly job costing, correct sales/use tax calculations, and superior inventory management. Other POS+ features include customer proposals and sales orders, labor tracking, sales tax reporting, commissions, and installer billing.
Of particular interest to wood specialists is the “kit” feature, which allows users to quickly pull up and adapt (as needed) pre-populated materials and labor line items for the acclimation, installation, and sand & finish phases of hardwood flooring.
The software is 100% browser-based, and can be used on any device with an internet connection. This means that it is not necessary to install software, purchase servers, install networks, or other costly IT expenses.
The software’s programming allows for greater flexibility. For instance, line items on the invoice can be expanded, collapsed, and moved at will. Kits can be created that automatically populate the invoice with related items and labor costs, and then can be adapted as needed.
“We’ve had people testing QPro POS+ for a year or so, and we just started rolling it out to the public,” said Chad Ogden. “The response has been very positive. There’s an obvious need for a software solution in this segment of the market. ” He continues, “While in the past, cost and IT investment prevented many small dealers from enjoying all of the streamlining and automation technology can bring, that’s no longer an issue. At only $40 per month per user, QPro POS+ is the ideal product for them. There are no longer any excuses for not enjoying the significant benefits of industry-specific software.”
