Press Release: Next Generation Floor Estimating Software to Debut at Surfaces

FloorEstimate Pro Gains Major Industry Endorsements

January 31, 2007 (Pasadena, CA) - Floor Covering Soft will launch FloorEstimate Pro V6, its next generation floor estimating Software during Surfaces 2007 in Las Vegas.

Version 6 incorporates a number of first of their kind innovations. It will support Flooring Industry B2B Standards so the program can automatically download product catalogs from vendor web sites. The new version also allows a user to layout a flooring job graphically, for example, dragging and dropping a moulding to any edge or creating multiple section tile settings on walls. Other features enable categorizing job estimates by materials, room, unit or floor layer, and much more.

Floor Covering Soft has seen widespread industry adoption of its advanced estimating technology due to its easy-to-use graphical user interface and drag-and-drop operations similar to Office applications.

The financial management software firms Q-Floors and Comp-U-Floors have integrated their estimate-order functions with FloorEstimate Pro for four years.

Mohawk University has customized a special edition for its dealers. Their solution helps dealers increase efficiency by automating their estimates and improving sales conversions.

Fujitsu USA, a Shaw Alliance Partner, recently created a bundled mobile solution, Fujitsu tablet and laptop computers are preinstalled with FloorEstimate Pro estimating software for use by flooring sales reps in the field.

"My people use FloorEstimate Pro everyday on every job. It consistently streamlines the measuring and estimating process - eliminates potential errors from writing a order all the way to a quality installation", proclaims Iffy Okechukwu, owner of Mid-Peninsula Flooring Design Center with a huge 25,000 SF showroom, in Foster City, CA.

"Floor Covering Soft is much more than an estimating software company because it is capable of serving customers of different sizes and needs. From standard programs to creating customized estimating solutions, our customers range from one store operations to national chains like Empire Today", noted Dr. Steven Wang, the creator of FloorEstimate Pro.

Floor Covering Soft will be debuting FloorEstimate Pro V6 at their booth G2324 and holding a press conference on Wed., Feb 7, from 8:30 AM-9:30 AM in Room #403 of the convention center. For more information, contact Floor Covering Soft by telephone 626-683-9188 or visit www.FloorCoveringSoft.com.
