The leading platform for the electronic exchange of master and transaction data in the furniture industry is overseen by an advisory board consisting of the Bundesverband des Deutschen Möbel- Küchen und Einrichtungsfachhandel (BVDM) [Federal Association of German Furniture and Kitchen retailers], the Verband der Deutschen Möbelindustrie (VDM) [German Furniture Industry Association], the Zentralverband gewerblicher Verbundgruppen (ZGV) [Central Association of Commercial Cooperatives] and the Data Competence Centre (DCC).

The IWOfurn operators have given these industry representatives an undertaking to

The results of this neutral positioning and understanding of openness and sustainability are, for example,

  • the connection to ERP systems, solutions and planning solutions that are successful in the market,
  • cooperation with standardization organizations such as GS1 Germany or DCC
  • support for various technical standards and format

But commercial aspects such as the ever-increasing functionality and the ever-expanding range of services at the same costs are also a measure of the sensitivity with which IWOfurn is politically promoted in the industry.
