It’s only natural to start January by reflecting on the last year and looking to the new year. By all accounts, 2022 was a very good year for PromoStandards and industry integration, and everyone is taking note.
PromoStandards Chair Eric Alessi reflects on how the standards, which are mature, proven, and based on critical needs, have created a network that is getting stronger and stronger.
A Year in Review
The industry is confident in PromoStandards, and adopters are encouraging others to integrate. As a result, both adoption and membership are up.
Standards are improving with second versions of the integration endpoints to fill requested features. Additional standards are being developed for new functionality to bring even more efficiency and automation.
Trading partners are building on the success they’ve had in 2022 by implementing additional endpoints and integrating with more partners.
All in all, PromoStandards members are getting involved in the process, and adoption is a great leading indicator of future success.
There is value in integrating, even with one important trading partner. The information that used to take a lot of time and labor to communicate is now done automatically and accurately, providing a hassle-free experience.
Industries organically organize and grow into a strong network with:
- open standards that anyone can adopt,
- a community that helps everyone succeed,
- and an organization that encourages everyone to participate in developing the standards.
The PromoStandards Community
20th-century American philosopher William Durant said, in summarizing Aristotle, that success breeds success. Aristotle also said that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
You may be wondering how these philosophers relate to PromoStandards. Through our community, PromoStandards has built a successful network. In doing so, we’re developing even more functionality.
What We Do Matters
Members and consumers of PromoStandards are key to creating solutions. As adoption continues to grow, so do the opportunities for positive outcomes. Here’s to continued success in 2023 and beyond!
