2BA is the neutral datapool for the exchange of product and related trade data between manufacturers, agents, importers, wholesalers, installers and other tech-oriented companies. This exchange takes place through uniform files that have been determined in the sector according to the standards of Ketenstandaard Bouw en Techniek. In addition, the 2BA datapool is equipped according to the ETIM Classification Model, the international standard in item classification in, among others, the installation industry.
For internal product management (through PIM software) and the availability of 2BA functionality in the user’s own (ERP and/or CAD) software, 2BA works closely with a number of renowned and specialised software parties. However, other software suppliers in these disciplines are naturally also invited to link with the 2BA data pool. Navigate from the side menu to the detailed information applicable to your company.

- More than 4 million product records
- Nearly 24 million trade records
- Over 150 affiliated wholesalers
- More than 500 data providers from approximately 1,200 manufacturers
- Over 2,300 installation and assembly companies with a total of more than 76,000 employees
