Abstract. B2B is not only a model of cooperation between enterprises. It may also be implemented in companies with a dispersed organizational structure to which construction companies belong. It turns out that B2B systems contribute to an effective implementation of the investments located even in distant geographical locations. The use of Internet technology contributes greatly to the successful exchange of information between the ERP system and other IT systems or applications. Thus, the management of complex processes is facilitated by automating the flow of information and data integration. In construction companies, each investment may be treated as a large and complex project. Therefore, the ERP systems are very useful there. Combined with Web Services with advanced B2B supporting construction processes, they are a powerful tool for managing a construction business. The purpose of this article is to present the results of an analysis of the idea to integrate ERP systems with OPTIbud systems based on research conducted under the second stage of the project entitled``The prototype of an innovative and technologically advanced OPTIbud B2B platform that supports the management of construction processes through the integration of data and information from multiple sources.''
