There are numerous ways how you can create new objects that you may use to return results from your functions. One way is using JSON, a very simple description language. It is fully supported in PowerShell 3.0. Have a look:

PS> $content = '{"Name":"weltner","FirstName":"tobias","id":123}'
PS> ConvertFrom-Json $content

Name                          FirstName                                                id
----                          -------                                                  --
weltner                       tobias                                                  123
