QFloors responds proactively to new California law

Home News QFloors responds proactively to new California law

Salt Lake City, Utah—QFloors has added new features in response to the California carpet stewardship law,  AB 2398, which went into effect July 1.

The law requires an assessment of $.05 per square yard upon the purchase price of all carpet sold and/or distributed.  This must be collected as a non-taxed item, clearly visible and detailed on the invoice.  It also requires additional record-keeping by the retailer. Any dealer not in compliance with the law is subject to hefty fines. The purpose of the law is to increase and incentivize recycling of carpet into new products.

Current California QFloors customers received their software update, QFloors 6.0, prior to the law going into effect.  Along with many other new capabilities, QFloors Version 6.0 features options created in direct response to the new California law.  It updates invoices and tracking so that dealers can easily stay in compliance with this new law’s requirements.

“The entire purpose of our existence as a software company is to make life easier for floor-covering businesses,” said Chad Ogden, president and CEO. “This new California law puts a lot of added responsibility on dealers, who are already extremely busy. They are now required to invoice differently, and also have additional tracking and record-keeping responsibilities.  We knew it was important to give dealers the option of having all of this done for them automatically.”

QFloors customer Decker Warner of By Design Floor Covering commented, “QFloors has helped immensely with our company’s transition over to CARE compliance.  I have no idea how I would’ve managed all of the new requirements without QFloors – it would have been a nightmare.  I’m no scientist when it comes to the computer, but with QFloors, the transition has been absolutely painless.  It now takes care of all that the Carpet Stewardship Law requires.”

The new QFloors 6.0 update also includes integrated sales tracking and productivity tools, quota/sales forecasting, efficiency reports, sales goals reports, and advertising options.  A new User Dashboard includes a contact manager, task manager, and instant messaging.  New B2B features, advanced search options, hot keys, and promotional pricing options also are included.
