Certification Process

Once development is completed, we will schedule an appointment for the upcoming certification.

At this point, you will receive a detailed test scenario custom-built for your requirements, which will be used as guidelines for the certification call. The certification appointment is to be scheduled in such a way that you have the sufficient time to prepare your solution.

The certification process has two main parts:

  • Certified Ready

During this first step, the interface is tested in a lab (within SIHOT test environment). You will be requested to provide the interface implementation, which will be assessed in the test scenario step by step with SIHOT’s team.

Certifications calls are performed remotely using the meeting tool Microsoft Teams.

SIHOT integrates several exception tests and errors into the test scenario. This step is essential to ascertain that your interface responds to the errors correctly.

If tests are successful, certification will be completed and ready to get into production. It will be displayed on SIHOT Integration Finder as Certified Ready.

Should you be not be able to pass the lab-test, another appointment for the first part of the certification needs to be scheduled.

  • Certified Proven

When the interface has been successfully implemented for three pilot customers, it will be considered Certified Proven, and so be displayed on the SIHOT Integration Finder.

That will be the proof that your integration fulfils the highest SIHOT quality standards.

Once all the tests are successfully completed in the three pilots, we will issue a certificate stating that your system complies with SIHOT standards.

You can use the certificate as an official seal of approval by GUBSE to assure your clients that your system integrates correctly into the SIHOT environment.
