Understanding the PIES Description Segment
There are currently 15 description codes that can be used to describe your product. Each of the 15 codes can be used an unlimited number of times. This allows quite a bit of flexibility to describe your item.
Codes for describing invoice, long product descriptions, application summary, marketing and more are available.
The PIES Description Segment provides the structure for data suppliers and manufactures to communicate straight forward and accurate descriptions of their inventory products to receivers. Receivers can be the supplier, retailer all the way to the consumer.
Because there are many types of descriptions, manufactures and suppliers of data can manage specific PIES Descriptions for each. Some descriptions are appropriate for inventory control systems while others are content rich for ecommerce web shopping carts.
