BETHESDA, MD — The Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA) has released version 1.9 of the PARTnerShip Network software. This new version contains a number of enhancements and two new features: support for Internet Parts Ordering (IPO) and a request for data in the Product Information Exchange Standard (PIES) format.
PARTnerShip Network is an industry-sponsored software solution designed to address the escalating costs of e-commerce communications. The software is an alternative to the Value Added Network (VAN) based communication of EDI and other electronic messages between business partners. PARTnerShip Network delivers critical business documents with the same reliability and security of a VAN with no transaction or per-character fees associated with its use.
With the addition of IPO support and the Request for PIES, PARTnerShip Network represents an e-commerce platform based entirely on aftermarket industry standards. With these two new features, as well as an enhanced user interface and faster operations, PARTnerShip Network has developed into a robust aftermarket software solution, according to AAIA.
“The latest version of PARTnerShip Network is an exceptional value because it includes support for other industry standards, saving precious development time and accelerating adoption,” said Scott Luckett, AAIA’s vice president, technology standards and solutions. “The software operates peer-to-peer, so a manufacturer only installs once to communicate with any trading partners who also have the software installed. The savings grow rapidly as the number of partners increases.”
