Cleo Again Earns Drummond Certification for AS2

ROCKFORD, Illinois — Cleo, a leading provider of enterprise cloud integration solutions, has been named one of 16 global organizations whose AS2 software products have been Drummond Certified™ in the automated interoperability test event for the third quarter of 2017.

This round of testing certifies the interoperability of AS2 for Version 5.5 of the Cleo Harmony®Cleo VLTrader®, and Cleo LexiCom® solutions, which are part of the Cleo Integration Cloud.

AS2 (Applicability Statement 2) is one of the most widely recognized messaging standards for B2B e-commerce with thousands of implementations around the globe. It enables businesses to easily establish trading partner relationships to exchange business data (like EDI, XML, documents, PDFs, text files, etc.) securely and reliably, thereby delivering cost savings and providing flexibility and control for backend-to-backend integration.

Cleo is one of just two companies to complete every optional test for this round of Drummond certification. Certain industries have additional requirements they need added to the AS2 standard and, therefore, to the AS2 Interoperability Test. The optional tests, then, prove additional product capabilities that enable a more robust and reliable flow of critical business information among multi-enterprise information eco-systems.

Continuous recertification for AS2 and every optional AS2 tests means Cleo’s customers get the most value out of Cleo’s complete, reliable B2B integration technology.

“This is our 17th year of conducting bi-annual AS2 testing,” said Aaron Gomez, AS2 director for Drummond Group. “With each round of interoperability testing, we have seen an increase in global adoption as more products certify and come into the marketplace. The Drummond Certified™ program provides numerous industries with a variety of products all tested for compliance and interoperability. Drummond AS2-certified products continue to provide the highest level of interoperability providing global businesses of all sizes a wide selection of offerings.”
