“What Should I Expect When Transitioning to QFloors?”
Implementing a new flooring software system for your business is not an instant “flip-a-switch” kind of transition. It will require time, discipline, patience, and commitment on your end. Although our floor covering software IS the most user-friendly solution out there (just ask our customers), there is still a learning curve. However, as you begin to implement the software and use it in the recommended way, you’ll see that it’s going to greatly benefit your business, saving you time and boosting your profits in the long run.

Did you know that this type of training and support typically costs a midsize business an ADDITIONAL $2K-10K annually for each user? Lucky for you, with QFloors you can have this all for FREE OF CHARGE, so you can quickly get up to speed.
What Does QFloors' Implementation Process Look Like?
(If you select our 4-Day Onsite Conversion and Training option, this process is sped up significantly.)
We’ll sit down and set a realistic “go live” date for your operation. Although we understand that businesses have different needs and implementation journeys, it is realistic for an operation who keeps their appointments and goals to have their operation online in as little as 4-6 weeks.
Below we’ve outlined the timeline of what a typical implementation process can look like when utilizing our free training and support:
Before you purchase, consider how many users you’ll need, when you’ll take time to implement the software, and whether you need additional add-on products and services.
Most companies set a “Go Live Date” 4-6 weeks out. But we’ll help you create a plan of action, based on your company’s needs, environment, and schedule.
You’ll have a checklist of basic setup directions. Should you need assistance, we can help walk you through it, or there are reference videos. Steps include setting up company information, locations, profit centers, sales tax, employees/subs, etc.
Setting up your product catalog will take about 5-8 hours. Do it all in one day, or spend one hr/day for a week working on it. You can also schedule a one-hour product catalog training for additional help if desired, at no cost.
Personalized Basic Training appointments (via phone/online screenshare) for you and your team are available, and are included with your purchase. Or, if needed, we can schedule multiple one-hour appointments over a few weeks to accommodate everyone on your staff.
This should be started no more than 4 days prior to going live. You’ll enter your existing inventory, your payables, and your previous systems’ receivables.
Start using the software on a day-to-day basis. (Don’t forget you can always call our support department if you have a question on how to do something.)
Enter your accounting balances using our “End of Period Procedures” checklist. Our support staff is also happy to assist you with this process.
Hit the Ground Running with 4-Day On-site Training
Hands down, the fastest and most efficient way to transition to QFloors is through our on-site training and conversion option. It’s a great way to minimize downtime and help your entire team quickly come up to speed. We travel to your location, and typically, in just 4 days (yes - you heard that right!) we train your entire staff and convert your business from what you were using to QFloors. Customers tell us this is an optimal way to hit the ground running. It’s been proven to be extremely effective, and is surprisingly affordable. Contact us for details and pricing.
Or, Join a Virtual On-site Training Hosted by a Top-Notch Trainer
As another option, we also offer Virtual On-site Training. This is a good option for focused, concentrated training when an on-site conversion is not feasible. With a Virtual On-site, a QFloors trainer will set up a webinar with your store and conduct the training remotely. The webinar can be joined by up to 25 employees, and is recorded for unlimited future reference. More information can be found here.
