Flooring website design may seem simple, but once you delve into creating yours... Well, what you had thought was straightforward and easy, just because you had seen and used various features on major sites before, may quickly frustrate you as your IT department and/or accounting software provider tells you they can only take it so far!
While it is easy to create a "static" flooring website design that displays basic company information (essentially a digital brochure about your company), it becomes very difficult to display your products with all the technical information your buyers want before making such a major purchase.
And then it becomes even more difficult to add e-commerce to your website, whether just for samples or for flooring products. And then try to offer pricing by customer class with different levels for each — all of which further complicates the build-out.
If you want a website that you can self-manage and also offers deep functionality, we suggest you look through this site to learn more about what Flooring Web Solutions can offer.
In all cases, Flooring Web Solutions seeks first to understand your existing inventory and detailed product data, which typically are held in your accounting system (ERP) and also in various MS Excel price lists and spreadsheets.
We then take our existing product database and adapt it to your needs, as opposed to relying on MS Excel or accounting software. This database is then populated with your product data and typically used as the product data master. It can also be used to populate the product information in your accounting software.
Next is the flooring website design. FWS builds your website, with the data-driven product section, utilizing both your product database for deep product info and your ERP for the quantities on hand and locations. And, if desired, we can add full e-commerce capabilities.
