B2B is simply the sending and receiving of information using computer technology.
fcB2B technology can enable software users to automatically send and receive the documents that are exchanged everyday between manufacturers, distributors, and flooring retailers and contractors, such as purchase orders and invoices, in a fraction of the time it takes when completed manually.
Manufacturers and distributors of flooring products are currently doing business electronically, using B2B technology governed by the fcB2B standard. See how many of your trading partners are ready to work with you using B2B. This list is updated monthly.
The standard consists of a set of open (non-proprietary) specifications that define an accepted method of data interaction between trading partners. It is intended to facilitate a common starting point from which the manufacturers and their customers can establish electronic data communications.
The Association is endorsed and supported by manufacturers, distributors, associations, industry groups and software providers, working together to create one clear unifying vision that will take the entire industry into a more efficient and profitable future.
The Floor Covering Business To Business Association membership consists of key flooring industry business professionals. Members include Fortune 1000 companies, individual entrepreneurs, agencies, nonprofit, industry and trade associations.
