CPFR® is a business process used to create collaborative relationships between buyers and sellers through co-managed processes and shared information.
By implementing CPFR, entities in a supply chain can collaborate on a number of buyer/seller functions to achieve efficiencies. CPFR® is closely tied with similar earlier standards efforts such as ECR, Quick Response and VMI.
The CPFR business model supports the exchange of electronic business documents using eXtensible Markup Language (XML). These business documents are those created and supported by EAN.UCC and have been approved by the global community.
Drummond Group has tested products for their ability to exchange and process EAN.UCC CPFR® XML Standard Schemas Version 1.1 securely through AS2 in accordance to the EAN.UCC technical guidelines.
