e-Transcript service providers Parchment and Credentials Solutions announce a joint collaboration to implement OpenSPEEDE, an AACRAO SPEEDE compliant Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) gateway.

e-Transcript service providers Parchment (operator of Docufide and Avow) and Credentials Solutions announce a joint collaboration to implement OpenSPEEDE, an AACRAO SPEEDE compliant Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) gateway. The goal of OpenSPEEDE is to ensure the operation and availability of a vendor-independent SPEEDE server following the University of Texas at Austin’s decision to conduct a 12-month assessment of transition options of the operation of the “Texas Server.”

OpenSPEEDE will provide more options to colleges in how they send and receive transcripts through EDI or XML standards regardless of their vendor organization. OpenSPEEDE will also interface with EDexchange, a federated exchange network being developed by the Common Data Services (CDS) Task Force within Postsecondary Education Standards Council (PESC).

Current plans call for the OpenSPEEDE gateway to be running in the summer of 2013, along with support for the EDexchange network. Learn more about OpenSPEEDE at http://www.openspeede.org.
