HCL Commerce and TradeCentric

TradeCentric For HCL Commerce is the easiest way to provide PunchOut integrations for a seller’s HCL Commerce store with a buyer’s back-end procurement or enterprise resource planning platform.
Prior to HCL Commerce, TradeCentric’s integration was certified and validated by IBM WebSphere, and is currently used by businesses globally to facilitate scalable and inexpensive B2B eProcurement integration.
TradeCentric integrates with HCL Commerce via the TradeCentric Gateway, a proprietary integration platform as a service (iPaaS) that mediates communication between eCommerce applications and eProcurement systems. We handle the complex business of translating data and feed formats between applications so that buyers can seamlessly PunchOut from an HCL Commerce store to their company’s back-end procurement system.
From the buyer’s perspective, the procurement process couldn’t be simpler. First, they choose your HCL Commerce store from within their eProcurement interface:
- The buyer is automatically redirected to and authenticated into the HCL Commerce store.
- The buyer then selects products from within the HCL interface.
- When they are finished, instead of checking out, they transfer cart data back to their eProcurement system, where the buyer creates a requisition for approval.
- When the order is approved within the eProcurement system, TradeCentric sends the purchase order back to the HCL Commerce store for fulfillment or other end-points.
- TradeCentric also supports integrations for acknowledgements, eQuoting, shipping notifications and invoicing between the two platforms.
