What is Testing and Certification?

The SPS Commerce Testing & Certification service will prepare you to meet the compliance requirements of your retail customers–whether you’re adding a new EDI trading partner or expanding an existing relationship.

Our proven process, conducted by the Australian project team, ensures suppliers are ready to trade with any retail partner.

How does it work?

Using proven integrations battle-tested by thousands of companies, our Testing & Certification service helps you achieve EDI compliance quickly and ensures a successful outcome in production.

2. Your SPS consultant will guide you through your retailer’s specific requirements and technical specifications.

3. Together, you and your SPS consultant will complete an exchange of test data. Each testing program incorporates a customised data set based on your retailer’s order management model and electronic trading requirements.

4. After your initial test is complete, your consultant will partner with you to ensure success into production when you begin fulfilling orders with your retail customer. At the end of testing, you will be EDI capable and fully prepared to exchange data with the retailer.

What if a retailer changes EDI requirements?

Retailers change EDI specifications for a number of reasons. Regardless of the change, our expert team of EDI compliance specialists can help you navigate a change event. Read our blog post on why EDI has become complex, and how you can side-step that complexity entirely.

What is EDIFACT? 

EDIFACT is the EDI standard created by the United Nations, and is ISO certified.  It is used worldwide, excepting North America where the ANSI/X12 standard is in use.  SPS Commerce solutions support both standards.

For example, a purchase order document is called an ‘ORDERS’ in EDIFACT and an EDI 850 in ANSI/X12.
