Feb. 11, 2016—On Thursday, the Auto Care Association released the first in a series of animated Technology Minute online videos about the association's technology standards and best practices. The videos will promote awareness and understanding of the standards by presenting individual 60-second videos in simple, approachable terms.
Each video covers one component of the association’s technology standards, providing a brief introduction, a summary of what the component does, and explaining how it works with the other standards in the technology suite.
“The goal of these videos is to tell the story of our standards, and how all the elements work together to improve companies’ bottom lines,” said Taylor Mitchell, senior director for technology standards for the Auto Care Association. “We want to make it easier for the people who use them to get the most out of the standards, and help them explain to their bosses and colleagues how the standards are helping them improve supply chain efficiencies every day.”
The first video is about the Product Information Exchange Standard (PIES), the best practice for the management and exchange of product information in the auto care industry. Upcoming videos to be released include the Aftermarket Catalog Exchange Standard (ACES), the Product Attribute database (PAdb) and the Aftermarket Brand Table.
The videos will be available here.
