Integration certification is an opportunity for you to test your integration with our experts and to prepare for a successful market launch. We are committed to collaborating with you as a valued partner and we share your goal of certifying your integration and having it reach its full potential.
Certification is a process through which your integration version is thoroughly tested against a specific set of our products. During this process, we provide detailed feedback to help you optimize your integration. If the integration meets our standards, you will receive a certification attestation. This attestation can help promote your solution and gives it a competitive advantage against solutions that are not certified.
We recommend that you prepare for the certification at the beginning of your integration development to ensure a quick and efficient turnaround on this process.
The DAP team is happy to share the criteria with you at any moment.

Benefits of certification
End users need integrations to deploy their production systems and to make sure they meet Genetec standards. By showing them that you have successfully completed our integration certification, you give end users the peace of mind that the job will be properly executed.
Our certification team specializes in development tools and their best practices. Their expert knowledge of the products helps pinpoint elements in your solution that need to be adjusted. They will provide you with a list of adjustments in a detailed report for clear guidance.
We also encourage partners who have already passed their integration certification to pursue recertification when new versions of their solutions are published. Keeping your solution certified and up to date with the latest advancements in technology ensures your solution stays relevant and performs as well as possible.
