In conjunction with certified software provider RFMS, Mohawk tested multiple scenarios entailing product catalogs, purchase orders and purchase order acknowledgments, ship notices (ASN) and invoices validating that Mohawk is complying with the version 3.0 standards and the software providers are correctly processing those documents, according to Davis.

“I am excited that Mohawk Industries, one of the largest manufacturers, sees the value of certification and helps lead the industry to ensure the retailer is receiving consistent information which conforms to the standard.” Davis said.  “With help from RFMS, this certification process allowed Mohawk to validate both the sending and receiving of version 3.0 documents using real scenarios. As we continue to shape the industry’s highest software standards, this announcement will provide a level of confidence to the retailers, who use a certified software, as they begin to transact fcB2B with their certified suppliers. We hope to have more announcements as other companies follow in their footsteps and request certification.”

Stacy Chambers, application manager EDI, Mohawk Industries, added, “Mohawk is very excited to have completed the certification process with fcB2B and RFMS. Mohawk feels that moving from V2 to V3, will simplify the data in the 832 and 855 and help customers understand their data more clearly. Mohawk is committed to helping our customers and want to give the customer a better overall experience.”
