About PIE

The recently-launched PIE (Product Information Exchange) Technology PlatformTM is a cloud-based platform for manufacturers and distributors of industrial products access to the most comprehensive catalog for the exchange of rich content product information.

Growing relationships and sales between channel partners is key to a company's success.  As the industry standard for exchange of rich content data, PIE helps strengthen collaboration and increase e-commerce sales by allowing PT/MC channel partners to communicate descriptive product information efficiently and seamlessly. 

Belt drives was the first power transmissions product category introduced to the platform and, with the addition of bearing accessories and tools, brings the total number of PIE categories to 24. Chains and sprockets, iron sheaves, linear bearings and seals are also expected to launch this year. An additional nine categories are planned, including brushing/hub fixes, shaft couplings, conveyors & material handling, gearing, adjustable speed drives, motor/motion control, clutches & brakes and motors.
