The Road To PIES
Road To PIES Are your customers asking for PIES files? If you supply CarQuest, O'Reilly, Amazon or a growing list of others, they probably already have. There are several paths you can take to satisfy these requests, but it really comes down to what fits your organization. The three major approaches include:
  • Expensive enterprise-wide systems (PIM)
  • On-line, outside web services (DIFM)
  • Integrated PIES publishing repository
No matter what solution you choose, getting your data in shape may be your biggest challenge. Even a DIFM approach will not by-pass this vital step. You must still identify data sources for each PIES element and find ways to update that information reliably, consistently and automatically. This is where we can help. Check out PiesCentral for a low-cost, low-impact way to deliver PIES files today.
