Carl and Jason have recently returned from a trip to Germany to visit a company called Parador, who they visited with one of our clients Westco Floors (Western Cork Limited). The purpose of the visit was both to become more familiar with the flooring products supplied by Parador and to check out a software implementation in place at Parador which includes a sophisticated floor designer that they have also implemented online.
The showroom at Parador was very impressive, as was the efforts that they have put into their floor designer software. This new floor designer software is great and has been made available online via their website, offline via a disk, and also through a clever POS system for flooring showrooms. If you want to read more about Parador and their products and services we recommend that you also visit Living Performance.
Westco are large flooring wholesaler for the UK and also have a very impressive business; they are already working closely with Parador and are working on plans to supply more of the Parador products. The Parador software that we are looking at with Westco is not quite capable yet of implementing in a bespoke fashion as it cannot yet be implemented with a selection of flooring products, so at the moment it's all or nothing, but with a little work we can get this software implemented for Westco here in the UK and we will be working on this over the coming months.
