Computers for Flooring pride as one of our customers wins ‘Best Flooring Retailer’ at the Interiors Monthly Awards for the second year running

Following the success of Martin Phillips Carpets in the Best Flooring Retailer (3 plus stores) category last year, we are proud to congratulate another of our valued customers on their award in the Best Flooring Retailer (1-2 stores) category. Floor Coverings joined the Computers for Flooring family in 2011 and it has been a pleasure watching the immense dedication and professionalism of the team result in a hugely successful business enjoying continued growth. Taro Strowgger, Owner of Floor Coverings feels that his success has been a collaborative effort:

“4 years ago my office manager showed me an article in the Contract Flooring Journal that said Carman will help run your business and give you more time with family. Now we were really struggling to keep up with all of the business we were getting so I was snowed under and at the time our turnover was £600 K. I purchased Carman and 4 years later I take 2-3 holidays a year and turnover 1.2 million and have a family life. If Carman disappeared tomorrow I really don’t know how I would cope. Best product I ever purchased for the company and couldn’t recommend it more highly.”

Winners of our Harrogate Porsche track day draw, Laywell Flooring, join us at Silverstone!

Following the enormous interest generated from our prize draw at the Flooring Show, Harrogate in 2014, Laywell Flooring were the lucky winners of a Porsche track day at Silverstone. We then went one better by arranging for them to attend the Porsche Carrera GB media day to witness the unveiling of the cars involved in the cup!
Computers for Flooring are proud sponsors of Paul Rees, who has recently confirmed his entry into the 2015 Porsche Carrera Cup GB with Parr Motorsport. Paul joins Parr after coming third in the Porsche Carrera Cup last year in his rookie year and is set to battle for race wins, and ultimately the championship win, throughout 2015.
Computers for Flooring’s sponsorship meant that Paul Williams and Richie Sissons from Laywell Flooring were lucky enough to visit the exclusive BRDC (British Racing Drivers’ Club) clubhouse at the Silverstone National paddock, where they then enjoyed hospitality before zipping around the track driving a Porsche 911 GTS, Porsche Panamera and also a Boxster GTS.
The event was a great success with Paul Williams from Laywell referring to the experience as ‘literally the best day ever’!
Computers for Flooring will return to the The Flooring Show at Harrogate this year to showcase their management software designed specifically for the flooring industry, and also give the opportunity for a similar experience to another lucky winner!

This year’s show was a great success for the team at Computers for Flooring – with a Porsche GT3 type 991 on the stand they were certainly difficult to miss! The team took the opportunity to launch their new ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system, designed specifically for large stock holders. One of their customers, Donald Mercer of Martin Phillips Carpets, affirms that Carman helped streamline the business and allowed it to focus on growth, resulting in repeated year on year rises in profits. ‘We now have a professional business model that is replicated throughout our seven locations, giving complete visibility and providing crucial management data for making key decisions.’

Proud sponsors of Paul Rees

Computers for Flooring are pleased to sponsor Paul Rees in the Porshce Carerra GT Cup. As a front runner in the competition, Paul Rees hopes that the Supercup will be his next career step. “It is the next logical step within the Porsche family, if I do Carrera Cup GB again in 2015 I would have a good shot at winning it. But I would look to do some Supercup races as well. We were with most of Supercup drivers in the Le Mans race this year and I showed well against them achieving fastest lap & driver of the weekend”.
In the meantime, Rees is looking to finish strongly in the last UK Championship round at Brands Hatch on the Grand Prix circuit this weekend, “I like to focus on one thing at a time and for now my priority is to have a strong finish at Brands Hatch”.
“I would like to thank Steria, Ardencom, Optimax, Siberian Chic, PES & Computers for Flooring for their fantastic support this year”!
