1Gather business needs and requirements

eDelivery provides everything you need to set up a message exchange solution that conforms to OASIS's AS4 profile and the eIDAS Regulation's security requirements.

You can start implementing eDelivery by gathering business needs from customer(s) and translating them into requirements. Requirements will help you determine which parts of our offering can help you develop your software and services.


2Scope your offering

Based on gathered requirements, define the scope of your software and services. You can develop your own software in house or use existing software components to put together your message exchange infrastructure. 

eDelivery offers sample software for Access Point, Service Metadata Locator (SML) and Service Metadata Publisher (SMP). Together these components provide the main functionalities to enable digital messaging, and their adoption is supported by our Service Desk. Consider benefits of going digital with eDelivery and upgrade your solution to conform to eDelivery's specifications.


3Develop your solution with the help of our services

If you decided to develop your own solution, you can use our technical specifications to ensure that development happens in line with the AS4 messaging protocol. If you chose to base your solution on eDelivery sample software, our onboarding services can help you get started.


4Test your solution

Before offering your software and services to clients, deploy the components of your chosen solution and test them.

Test your ability to send messages with our connectivity testing service. If you developed your own software with our technical specifications, you can also use our conformance testing service to validate your implementation's compliance with the AS4 profile. We provide a testing platform, test cases and professional support during the entire testing process.


5Promote your software and services

Once you have successfully passed the conformance testing, your solution will be added to our list of eDelivery AS4 conformant solutions. This is great way to promote your services and software to potential customers.


Questions? Our Service Desk is open for your questions, comments, incidents and change requests at any point before, during and after implementation.
