Motive IntegratorTM Certify accelerates integrations and ensures data integrity.

Motive IntegratorTM Certify simplifies and improves the process of third party systems integrations. It handles the end-to-end integration process – from the design and publishing of API specifications, to validation, testing, and ultimately, to delivering certified systems – all while providing project management insight and handling ancillary services like retail store activation and regression testing of already-certified systems.

Motive Integrator can handle requesting, tracking and facilitating dealer activation for rollout. It can also host comprehensive OEM program information, such as available integrations, regional implementation guidelines, and DMS status.

Design & Publish

Users can utilize industry standards, proprietary XML schemas or JSON instance documents and define business and technical rules, communication and authentication protocols, and more.

Whether your specs are in the design or published state, Motive Retail applies its industry expertise and system neutrality to challenge ambiguity and bring clarity to original source technical specs and business use cases, ensuring that technical requirements align to end user use cases and facilitate the data necessary to operate business and drive business intelligence. Specifications are then presented in a proprietary, interactive online format that’s easily understood and navigated.

Develop & Validate

Motive Integrator’s validation engine tests systems compatibility and provides real time detailed technical and business feedback to calibrate integration code and ultimately certify systems.

Motive Integrator provides sample files to be used as a reference for both request and response files.

Developers have unlimited access to practice use-case based test cases to ensure they’re ready before beginning actual, recorded testing.

Test & Certify

While having the ability to flex to any level of rigor needed by our clients, Motive Integrator can support a testing strategy that enforces technical and business rules which ensure smooth interoperability of systems and high data integrity.

Motive Integrator’s phased testing approach embraces the shift left philosophy and tests systems first against mock services fully hosted within Motive Integrator, and only once verified, progresses the developer to testing against OEM/publisher QA environments. Motive Retail’s industry expert support can even validate third party system artifacts (invoices, orders, etc.) against back-end database values as part of the certification process.

Program Management

Access dashboards to quickly understand overall program and individual project status. Drill in for details, including notes and project attachments, and export data for internal distribution.

Leverage communication tools to notify your partners regarding important program information and to manage project related notices.

Gain valuable program insights like cycle time, regional implementation trends, and information on partner projects and rollout plans.

Rollout & Maintenance

Dealer Service Activation. Once systems are certified for integration, authorized retail stores or their agents will need access to communication servers. Motive Integrator can handle the tracking of activations and deactivations, including housing online forms, routing authorization requests and approvals, and notifying third parties who need to take action to enable communications. View reports and track everything seamlessly at a program level.

Integration Program Portal. If you are an OEM or DMS who makes several integrations available to retail partners, your partners will appreciate one-stop access to everything pertaining to your integrations, such as regional availability, interface overviews, authorization processes, implementation status and integration prerequisites. Motive Integrator can host information for you, and even manage access control across partners.
