In this paper, we present the experience in the usage of MIDAS, an integrated framework for Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) testing automation that is available as Software as a Service (SaaS) in a cloud infrastructure, to test a GS1 Logistics Interoperability Model (GS1 LIM) compliant service architecture for the logistics domain. Activities performed, results achieved and the evaluation of success factors and key performance indicators (KPIs) are detailed as well as other insights: (1) 25 % of companies would pay for model-based testing (MBT), (2) GS1 LIM should be certifiable, and (3) companies identify as a major barrier how to calculate the MBT return on investment (ROI).
