Truugo for Teams

Harmonize message validation and documentation routines

Efficiency through automation, harmonization and sharing duties

Truugo helps your team to harmonize and automate testing and documentation routines. That will minimize risks, bring cost savings and help your company to generate extra revenues via shorter lead times.

  • One solution for message documentation and validation
  • One solution for different message syntaxes
  • One solution for syntax, structure, and content validation
  • One solution for internal and external testers
  • One solution for manual and automated validation

An easy-to-use team solution minimizes the risk of key-person dependency and maximizes knowledge continuity. Detailed validation combined with test automation will enhance data quality and reduce production issues. The value of a well-thought documentation and validation solution is probably higher than you have even imagined.

Key features

Subset Editor generates message documentation, validator and supplementary materials from the same source code.

Message documentation

Test form is a self-test solution for new deployments. Trading partners get access to easy interface for message validation to enable a smooth deployment process.

Self-test solution

API enables integration of detailed Truugo validation and test reporting to existing tools and processes to get full benefits of test automation.

API

Use cases

Truugo provides tools to set up and maintain detailed message guidelines/validators and share those with team members in a common workspace.

Shared team solution helps:

  • to split workload and take over duties whenever needed
  • to ensure everyone uses the same versions
  • to add transparency to testing activities
  • to harmonize documentation, testing and reporting routines
  • to minimize tacit knowledge having all requirements clearly documented and easily accessible

You will need a team license to set up a common workspace.

Truugo Subset Editors allow users to generate message guidelines, test profiles and related materials from a same source.

Applying a message standard to a context specific usage (=subset) is usually a time-consuming task. Subset Editor helps users to be super-efficient by allowing to use message samples as a basis for auto-generating an initial subset.

Once you have finished your message guideline using the Subset Editor, you can also generate a matching test profile without extra effort. By testing valid/invalid files exported from your system against the test profile, it is also easy to verify whether the message guideline is aligned with the system requirements.

Documentation quality usually erodes over time because companies do not have practical tools to ensure quality after iterative changes. Therefore, a lot of resources are wasted on iterations and status meetings to get implementations right. Using Truugo Subset Editor you can always auto-generate new versions of a message guideline, test profile and related materials from a same source, to maintain high quality.

Truugo provides Test Form solution to enable message validation as a self-service for trading partners. It allows trading partners to start testing messages independently as soon as they are ready, instead of waiting for you a suitable time for working on it together.

You can send your trading partner a test coupon which gives access to a predefined test profile for a certain number of days (starting from the first test). The trading partner completes testing as a self-service with an instant and sensible feedback.

Both parties will save a lot of calendar time, resources and nerves, when testing can be performed in an efficient way.

Truugo API can be used to integrate detailed validation in your existing tools.

API response contains the test result as a code (FAILED, INVALID, PASSED, VALID) and a test report url. Whenever the result code is other than VALID, you could display the test report for the user.

No changes are needed in user routines when validation request is embedded in an existing system action, like "Send Order". Likewise, you can provide Truugo validation as a separate, value-added feature.

Truugo API interface can be used to automate validation routines in a synchronous fashion. For bigger files and batches Truugo FTPS interface provides an alternative test channel.

Truugo API response contains the test result as a code (FAILED, INVALID, PASSED, VALID) and a test report URL. The result code (FAILED, INVALID, PASSED, VALID) can be used for steering the automated process further.

RPA (Robotic Process Automation) and Truugo API fit nicely together. RPA can be used, for example, to automate invoice processing flow: retrieve invoice, check supplier exists, check order exists, validate invoice, move to payment process. In this case the validate invoice action would trigger the Truugo validation using the API interface.

Benefits

Practical benefits
