In a move to expand its commercial business software tools, RFMS recently purchased commercial flooring software maker Pro%Cent Inc. and created a new division, RFMS Commercial. According to company spokeswoman Maria Cauchon, the new division will be headed by Pro%Cent founder Ron Hudson and include a software developer and customer support trainer to help ensure “a seamless transition for existing Pro%Cent clients.” Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The acquisition allows RFMS to put greater focus to its commercial clients’ needs, including the 56 commercial dealers who are part of Pro%Cent’s customer base. “While we have offered commercial tools in the past, it wasn’t exactly the best fit,” acknowledges Cauchon. “Hence the acquisition of Pro%Cent. The company has been around for 11 years, and builds on the founder’s 25 years of experience in the commercial flooring industry.”

Features of the RFMS Commercial software include: estimate and proposals creation, sales and project management, and the ability to revise orders, labor releases, AIA documents and invoices. The software also offers user-friendly navigation, internal job mail and phone logs, and easy connectivity, according to RFMS. The software will be offered as a separate module to the RFMS core software system, similar to the company’s module for builders, Cauchon notes.

Added Pro%Cent founder Ron Hudson, “This merging of two great companies will ensure that our software users will continue to get the stability and growth they have experienced in the past.”
