FSC Woodfinder Update
By: Maggie Abel
In November 2019, FSC US launched a brand new version of the FSC Supplier Portal (Woodfinder) which now gives suppliers the ability to promote their facility location/s, inventory, sales contacts and other information, and to directly update this information on-demand through their own account. It also provides analytics and insights – showing suppliers how many times they have appeared in searches, and for what product categories. As a result of these advancements, the Woodfinder is seeing increased usage by FSC suppliers and buyers alike.
Here’s what Claire Steadman, FSC Program Manager at 84 Lumber Company, says of the new Woodfinder:
“The FSC Supplier Portal has simplified the process of connecting committed FSC buyers to the right FSC suppliers. Buyers can now efficiently find convenient FSC suppliers, and suppliers can update their information securely in a matter of minutes, adapting to any situation as it arises. A helpful 14-minute video walks you through everything in a clear and concise manner.
As FSC Program Manager at 84 Lumber Company, I had 50 sites to enter into the FSC Supplier Portal. Between the video and the interface’s logical layout, the whole thing was made to be user friendly. The process was stress-free and took much less time to complete than I had anticipated. Entering or editing information was seamless and it was easy to navigate. The FSC Supplier Portal was obviously well thought out, and a job well done.”
