We have a couple FREE tools available for working with Product Information Exchange Standard (PIES) and Aftermarket Catalog Enhanced Standard (ACES) files. Feel free to contact us with feature requests or if you have ideas for more tools.
The Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA) created an Excel/Flat File subsidiary of the AAIA PIES 6.5 standard. Since for many data producers, it is easier to manage this in Excel, we've created a free tool that will instantly convert your AWDA PIES 6.3/6.4/or 6.5 file into a PIES 6.5 XML.
This tool will validate your AAIA PIES and ACES XML Files.
