TradeCentric solution: PunchOut & Purchase Order Automation


Improved customer experience, faster integration, and competitive market advantage


Dillon Supply, an industrial supplier founded in 1914, sought to improve its outdated EDI-based purchasing process, which was time-consuming and costly to integrate with new customers. It offered limited catalog management capabilities and did not meet modern buyer expectations. Dillon Supply needed a solution that would:

  • Reduce customer integration costs and lead times
  • Provide a flexible and personalized purchasing experience
  • Create a one-step purchasing process with automated data transfer


TradeCentric worked with Dillon Supply to integrate our B2B Connected Commerce solution with their Optimizely store. Once integrated, Dillon Supply’s store could exchange cXML, OCI, and other data protocols with any eProcurement platform, enabling PunchOut catalogs, Purchase Order Automation, and other procurement automation capabilities. 

We knew that we were in safe hands with TradeCentric. Their technology and support are second to none.
