Antera Software is proud to adhere to the strict guidelines established by PromoStandards. By adopting the specifications and standards established by PromoStandards, we are able to contribute to a better connected and more efficient product. Antera continues to improve current connections and available integration with Promo Standards. 

PromoStandards currently has 8 service types:

  • Inventory
  • Media Content
  • Order Shipment Notification
  • Order Status
  • Product Data
  • Product Pricing and Configuration
  • Purchase Order
  • Invoice

The following endpoints are available standards and how they are utilized in conjunction with Antera's system. Production status endpoints are able to be turned on live and beta endpoints are for testing purposes.  All endpoints require a distributor to have an account and request endpoint access for the suppliers they would like to connect to. Distributors are able to add endpoint credentials into Antera's system as they are made available.
