ARTS Schemas

ARTS Schemas are standard message sets built on the Operational Data Model to allow integration of applications in a retail setting by essentially enabling them to speak the same language. This allows retailers to add new applications to their existing infrastructure. By extension, this can allow them to offer new or better services to their customers in the form of loyalty programs, inventory searching and price look ups, to name just a few.

There are three different file downloads for each standard: The Charter (scope document), XML Schema and Technical Documentation.

Available for Download

Charters and schemas are in the public domain, and both members and non-members may download these files at no charge. Technical documentation is free for members and available for non-members to purchase in the Retail Library.
