South Jordan, Utah—QFloors and MeasureSquare have entered into an agreement allowing QFloors the rights to market, sell and support MeasureSquare products. Integration between the products will be more closely aligned as well.
Chad Ogden, QFloors president, announced the aligned relationship during the software company’s Users Conference. “This agreement pairs two of the top software solutions for the floor covering industry in a strategic alliance that will provide a more comprehensive and seamless solution for all types of floor covering dealers—commercial, multi-family, builder and retail.”
With the new partnership, QFloors will now sell and support MeasureSquare products, in addition to its other software packages. MeasureSquare will also continue to sell and support its clients.
“We have had a long-time partnership with QFloors,” said Steven Wang, president of MeasureSquare. “By far they are the most customer-focused software company. Both of our companies are committed to integrating our products seamlessly, which will significantly streamline the measure estimating-to-sales process for flooring dealers.”
Historically, QFloors had taken a fairly neutral position on estimation products. Ogden explained this is because the company wanted to take the time to completely understand all of the solutions available. “We have a very high standard of quality and wanted to feel confident that products we recommended met that criterion,” Ogden said. “We now can say with assurance that we’re bringing to existing and new customers the best technology in the industry, both in estimation and in business management/ERP. In QFloors’ 18-year history, this is the first relationship of this type, and we are excited about the possibilities. By more closely integrating these products and companies together, it will be a win-win for all involved but most particularly for the end user.”
South Jordan, Utah—QFloors has doubled in size in the past three years, according to the floor covering software’s CFO Trent Ogden. Sales for the flooring business management (or ERP) software have experienced explosive growth; in response, QFloors has undergone some restructuring including adding new positions and employees.
“This rapid growth has caused us to restructure in order to meet the needs of our flourishing customer base,” Ogden said. “It’s important to us that we put in place the right structures and the right people so we can continue to deliver the same high level of customer service that has helped set us apart.”
President and CEO Chad Ogden is enthusiastic about the changes. “QFloors had its best year ever in 2015 and 2016 is already looking like it will exceed that, especially with the release of our new cloud software called QPro,” he said. “We are investing a lot toward infrastructure to accommodate the growth that we are experiencing. New phone and computer systems, servers, software tools and employees are all things we have invested in within the past year just to try to keep up with the growth. I feel with the people and structure we have in place now, we are poised for great things ahead.”
New hires in the past few months include Von Packard as B2B specialist; Kristy Soto in customer support; Shawn Moss as major account executive, sales; and Tasi Cluff as junior software engineer. Interviews for several additional customer support employees are currently underway.
New positions within the company include Ron Cluff, director of training; Kevin Cox, manager, professional services; Colten Gines, manager, customer support; Ted Schultz, director of sales; Tony Fabrizio, director of product development; and Licia Bailey, web design/developer. Aerin Ogden has taken on an expanded role in the advertising department.
Chad Ogden believes the recent personnel and infrastructure additions will allow the company to grow at an even faster pace. “All of these things are part of our strategy to be ready for the explosion that we expect upon releasing our new QPro cloud software products. “
