Fargo, North Dakota – October 14, 2019 – Continuing its 40+ years of providing technology and services that maximize the core value of Multiple Listing Services (MLSs), FBS introduces FlōPlan, game-changing floor plan and digital capture technology that empowers MLSs to create new value for members and consumers with a floor plan on every listing.

Every home has a flow. With FlōPlan, every listing can have a floor plan. As FBS’s President and CEO, Michael Wurzer, explains: “Very few listings have floor plans today, because they’re difficult and expensive to create. FlōPlan reverses this trend by making them cost-effective and easy to create, so that every listing can have a floor plan.” Wurzer continues, “Consumers and agents love floor plans because they instantly show how the home flows. With FlōPlan, the MLS industry will now be able to empower its members to deliver the floor plans consumers want.”

FlōPlan will be licensed to MLSs nationwide, with the goal of changing consumer expectations for what should be standard content for a listing. Wurzer says, “Innovations like FlōPlan clearly showcase the unique value of MLS cooperation to create the most robust, up-to-date, and accurate real estate data for agents and consumers. Our business is delivering innovation for MLSs and FlōPlan is a perfect fit that will change the industry.”

FBS’s FlōPlan software is powered by machine-learning technology from CubiCasa. It is already well-established and widely used by photographers, studios, and real estate agents around the world, with 500,000+ floor plans produced to date. CubiCasa Chairman, Zach Shelby, states, “We are extremely proud and excited to have FBS, the MLS industry’s leading technology provider, as both an equity investor and our exclusive channel partner for delivering our technology through FlōPlan to MLSs and other enterprise customers in North America and other select markets. We look forward to the future of an elevated experience where agents and consumers, nationwide, can expect a floor plan on every listing.”

The technology delivers quickly and affordably with no additional equipment or technical training required beyond a mobile phone and the downloadable application. Within 24-hours after the property is scanned, a FlōPlan is ready. FlōPlan’s marketwide value, ease of use, and affordability make it highly scalable, capable of transforming the vision of a floor plan on every listing into a reality. FlōPlan will be available in early 2020. Additional information is available at floplan.io.
