About fcB2B

The Floor Covering Business To Business Program (fcB2B) is a primary advocate for the continual development and adoption of a standard language that allows software management systems being utilized in the flooring industry to communicate seamlessly with one another. 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.

The program is comprised of 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.

Flooring Industry companies, from contractors to manufacturers all benefit when they are using software that utilizes fcB2B standards. Companies large and small can take advantage of the cost benefits B2B technologies offer.
