Upcoming Webinar: The Product Information Exchange Standard (PIES) and What You Need to Know About It
Also, mark your calendar for our February 15 webinar, "PIES: What You Need to Know." No matter what side of the supply chain your company serves, keeping the flow of information moving is key to limiting paperwork, securing more business and lowering costs across the board. Synchronizing your data to an industry standard is the first step to making your data work for you.

SEMA endorses and uses the Aftermarket “PIES” product data standards. The Product Information Exchange Standard (PIES) is the best practice for the management and exchange of a tremendous variety of product-attribute information in the automotive aftermarket industry. Following an industry standard is the first step towards global data synchronization with trading partners, and this will yield increased sales, shorter new-product introduction cycles and lower operating costs. Presented by Ed Heon, CEO, DATAgility Inc., this webinar will cover the benefits of PIES and the steps needed to take your business to the next level.
