Here at QPro, we proudly associate with the fcB2B organization, a coalition of manufacturers, contractors, suppliers, distributors, and software vendors within our industry, who are dedicated to helping flooring-related software programs speak seamlessly to each other.

We’ve also been trying to increase our efforts to better serve customers using the B2B functionality in our web-based QPro, as well as QFloors.

New SFTP migrations:

For those who don’t know, SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) is a security update that uses secure shell encryption to provide a higher level of security for sending and receiving file transfers. As time continues to pass, more vendors are starting to switch to this newly updated SFTP security system.

The current vendors that have migrated or created a new system environment to use SFTP are Mohawk, Happy Floors, Shaw, United Tile, Certified Flooring Distributors, JJ Haines, Surface Art and Emser.

Karndean, Kraus and Dixie are vendors that are in a pending stage of migrating to the SFTP protocol. Going forward we will broadcast future vendors that have been certified

New vendors who are fcB2B certified:

On our website we have a list of vendors who are currently B2B certified with QPro/QFloors. Each vendor has their own individual link, which can provide additional information on how to communicate with them. You can also see the current fcB2B documents that are certified.

We welcome all new vendors who’ve become B2B certified with QPro, as well as those who have expanded their B2B/EDI presence.

The most recent vendors to be certified are:

Reach out to these vendors today, and request this communication and time-saving function.
