Generic vs Flooring-Specific Software

Why Should You Seriously Consider Flooring-Specific Software?

There are dozens of benefits that software customized for the flooring industry can bring to a business owner, that generic solutions like spreadsheets or off-the-shelf accounting software (like QuickBooks™, for example) cannot.

Bicycles and Flooring Software

What do bicycles have to do with flooring software?

We’re so glad you asked.

Think back to when you were learning to ride a bicycle. Once the training wheels came off, you were cruising along like you owned the neighborhood. Perhaps your first bike (depending on your age) looked something like this?

But you eventually outgrew that one-gear bicycle. It couldn’t carry you as well as it did once. And so you graduated to a multi-gear bicycle. Perhaps something like this:

Now, with a more sophisticated “ride”, you could go faster and further, with less effort. You climbed hills like they were speed bumps. Your bike’s shocks made for a more comfortable ride, and the brakes worked much better, allowing you to avoid obstructions in your path.

Whether mountain or road bike, a bike with multiple gears helps us to get where we are going quicker and more easily. It’s no longer 100% dependent upon our own stamina. Each pedal stroke is more efficient.

The same thing applies when you examine the difference of using basic spreadsheets or accounting software (“one-gear” tools, designed for any sort of business) or floor-covering business software (a “multigear” tool, customized to maximize your operation in every way).

Using the right tool (or bike) makes all the difference.

These “one gear” systems will only allow you to progress so far, and you’ll eventually wear out, trying to keep up as your business grows and becomes more complex.

Flooring-specific management software (also called ERP software) provides efficiencies that will allow the dealer to do more business with less cost, providing a more profitable business. The automation saves time and effort, allowing you to have a life outside of work.
