Since its founding in 1999, ARTS XML (Formerly IXRetail) has developed numerous standard xml schemas, all available for download free of charge from this site, with more on the way. ARTS XML builds on the ARTS Data Model to develop standard XML schemas and message sets to ease Application to Application (A to A) integration within a retail enterprise.

ARTS XML reports to the ARTS Board of Directors and is managed by a Technical Committee that meets on a quarterly basis. To review the development process, including the role of the Technical Committee, click here.

Completed Schemas are in the public domain, available on this website for download and use.
If you are unfamiliar with XML please review our Best Practices PDF
