Drybridge Consulting Page: 4 An invitation to participate The Party Identification Directory, well be referring to it as PID from now on, provides two primary functions. 1. A directory of contact, identifier, and address information for parties involved in the paper and forest supply chain. 2. Look-up and retrieval of this information You are experiencing one of the ways that we can make the PID service work. All approaches start the same way, an existing member invites a new trading partner to participate. The invited trading partner can choose to maintain their own information. Alternatively, the invited trading partner can choose to engage with IDEAlliance to maintain their trading partner information. Well be reviewing how to access the information in the following slides. The point to take away from this slide is: The quality of the information available is based on the effort that everyone puts into maintaining the information.
