Product Standards (PIES)



The Product Information Exchange Standard (PIES) is the best practice for the management and exchange of product attribute information in the vehicle aftermarket industry. Standardizing product content lowers supply chain costs and contributes to increased sales and operational efficiencies. Following an industry standard is the first step towards data synchronization with channel partners which yields increased sales, shorter new product introduction cycles and lower operating costs through reduced order processing, invoicing and shipping errors. Check out the AAIA white paper about the cost of unsynchronized product data in the aftermarket.
