Introducing the FlōPlan System! Another stellar benefit for your members!
In 2020, we released the FlōPlan System, a fast and easy mobile app that produces accurate floor plans overnight from scans done with a smartphone that can be easily linked to listings inside the Flexmls System. Thanks to your partnership with FBS, this excellent tool is available to use for your members.
What is FlōPlan?
FlōPlan is a floor plan generating app! The agent or agent collaborator can take a video walkthrough of a property and the next day they will have a complete 2D floor plan ready for their listing. A push of a button from the app instantly links the floor plan to their listing. No other steps required!
Why Did We Create the FlōPlan System?
Simply stated, floor plans make listings better – for everyone.
- Buyers want them: For years, Buyers have told us that a floor plan is one both valuable and helpful during the homesearch. According to NAR research, consumers rank the importance of a floor plan just beneath photos and property information; it’s hard to imagine that we’ve gone so long without fulfilling that need!
- Floor plans sell homes: Floor plans can help sell homes faster, providing a buyer with an instant view of the home’s flow. This helps them parse through inventory and build a list of properties to walk through with their agent that meet their needs.
- Floor plans improve the listing record: Floor plans improve and enrich the listing record and the MLS database.
How Much Does it Cost?
Each floor plan scan submitted is $29. Members pay per-scan through the FlōPlan software.
How Can Members Access the FlōPlan Software?
Members will be able to access a few ways:
- Via the Flexmls System: From the menu and via icons on listing entry and edit listing pages
- Via FlōPlan.io website login (Web app)
- Via downloading the FlōPlan App from the Google Play or Apple Store
How will the FlōPlan System be introduced and promoted to members?
We will be introducing members to the FlōPlan System via email and Flexmls integration points. This means that the FlōPlan App can be easily accessed from the Flexmls System. In addition, we encourage you to sign up to receive pre-built marketing materials and peruse existing content to help promote floor plans on listings.

For your members: Regular webinars to get them acquainted with the FlōPlan System can be found at the Agent Learning Center on the Floplan.io website. Because the system is so easy, dedicated training typically isn’t necessary.
How easy is the FlōPlan System, really?
FlōPlan’s innovative mobile scan technology enables an agent or someone the agent invites (photographer, assistant, team member, etc.) to scan a property with just a smartphone in less than 10 minutes. It is so simple that virtually anyone can do it with ease and create an accurate scan the first time. WR Studios’ Greg Robertson asked his teenage son to perform the scan and was blown away by it’s simplicity, speed and accurate results.
