PDS – Price delivery Solution
Price delivery solution "PDS" with API support

PIE is now officially offering an automatic API-based solution for the delivery of commercial grades. Thanks to an API link, we can automatically deliver the current price development of more than 150 commercial grades in the file formats .xls (Excel) or .cvs, so that you can in turn easily process them in your business intelligence solutions.

As a customer, your technical prerequisite is an ability to process .xls and .csv files. In the case of .xls files, that would be with Microsoft Excel, for example.

How does PDS work?
  • We offer 2 different solutions for the PDS. Once the transfer via API link directly into a business intelligence software or alternatively the sending of the polymer prices via e-mail. Of course, both solutions are possible at the same time, for example if you always want to see the latest prices on the road.
  • Solution 1: Static IP - For this, you need 1-5 fixed IP addresses or IP address spaces for authentication, which are stored in our backend. You receive the needed information from your IT department or by click on the following page: kiweb.de/ip-check. The link provided by us is can be transferred into your business intelligence solution, using an importer, so that the data is automatically available for you.
  • Solution 2: Dynamic IP - If no static IP is available, we also offer the possibility to receive the booked polymer prices via e-mail. For this purpose, you will receive a link generated by us, which sends the current polymer prices to a previously defined e-mail address when the link is called up in the browser.
