MIC's PSP Initiative Moves Forward

More than a dozen companies have agreed to join the Motorcycle Industry Council's upcoming implementation project for data communications standards, code-named Project Piston.

A part of the MIC's Partners Standard Protocol (PSP) initiative, Project Piston is designed to define and implement communication standards for the transaction of product registrations, warranty claims and repair orders directly from within a dealership's business management systems. PSP specifications are already established for a suite of transactions related to parts procurement.

The MIC says the benefits to dealers are tremendous. As more and more companies adopt the PSP standards, dealers benefit from having fewer interfaces to interact with, less redundant data entry, and higher quality data within their management system.

Project Piston begins with a group kickoff meeting to be held July 10-11 in San Diego.

Contact PSP national managing director Scot Begovich to learn how your organization can benefit through adopting the PSP standards — 949/727-4211 x3072 or sbegovich@mic.org.
