Resource and Financial Management Systems (RFMS, Inc.), a software developer for the flooring industry will host an educational event in 2021.

“RFMS is founded on the value of relationships, both with our employees and industry leaders, but especially with our clients”, says Rod Bayless, COO at RFMS. “2020 has been a particularly challenging year for us all; however, the flooring industry is resilient, and RFMS is ready to help our clients move forward into a promising future. We are pleased to share with you our plans for the 2021 RFMS Owner & Education Conference, “Stay In Tune with the Future”, in Nashville, TN on April 19th - 21st.

We understand that travel and group gatherings may still be impacted in April 2021. That is why, for the first time ever, RFMS will offer a hybrid learning alternative. Along with the in-person students, the conference will be offered in a virtual workshop format for those who are unable to travel to Nashville. This is an excellent opportunity for not only our clients but also our vendor sponsors to network and communicate either in-person or via the virtual environment.”

RFMS users can come together and choose from over 100 different workshops, running in 12 different classrooms. Class schedules are designed for owners, sales professionals, accounting/operations staff, estimators and just about anyone else who works in a flooring business and uses RFMS and
Measure. Additional information may be found at
