B2B PunchOut catalog challenges

  • Lack of testing
  • Disparate requirements

PunchOut catalog solution for suppliers

Our PunchOut catalog solution for suppliers supports B2B transactions via CXML, OCI, xCBL, XML with Ariba, Jaggaer (formerly SciQuest), Coupa, SAP, Oracle, and other procurement systems. We develop unique, robust, and customizable PunchOut catalogs.

TradeCentric provides the most innovative and robust B2B PunchOut catalog solutions with complete flexibility for suppliers and customizable buyer experiences.

Here’s how it works.

A buyer visits the supplier PunchOut catalog from their eProcurement network, such as SAP Ariba, Coupa or another eProcurement source. Our Platform recognizes these buyers and routes them to your online catalog/shopping cart, configured for the PunchOut buyer.

When the buyer adds items to their cart and proceeds to check out, they won’t see traditional checkout methods but instead “PunchOut Your Order.” The TradeCentric Platform transmits the order back in cXML, OCL and other document protocols to the eProcurement network source where the buyer completes the requisition for eProcurement.

PunchOut catalog solutions for buyers

As a buying entity, your organization is or has invested heavily into a spend management system to help streamline and manage spend. Getting your suppliers integrated with your eProcurement system can be a significant obstacle. TradeCentric streamlines vendor integrations to maximize your ROI by integrating your vendors to facilitate purchasing through your eProcurement platform.

The TradeCentric Platform can be implemented and integrated into any eCommerce platform.

Here’s how it works.

If your company has been purchasing from a supplier since before the times of eProcurement and you want the supplier to accept PunchOut orders moving forward, we can easily integrate our Platform with their eCommerce application to enable PunchOut capability.

The Role of PunchOut Catalog in the B2B Transaction Process

PunchOut

Buyer selects a supplier within the eProcurement system, is routed to the supplier’s eCommerce site to shop, then transfers the cart data back to their purchasing system. Order details are then routed by eProcurement for the appropriate approvals.

Purchase Order (PO) Automation

A PO is generated in the eProcurement system, then the buyer sends the PO from the eProcurement system to the supplier in a data format that can be ingested by suppliers’ systems.

Purchase Order Acknowledgment (POA)

Once the request is received by the supplier, a POA is generated with order details confirming that the PO was received and is sent back to the Buyer’s systems.

Advanced Shipping Notice (ASN)

After products ship, the supplier’s system will generate an invoice to send to the buyer in a data format that can be automatically read by the buyer’s systems.

Invoice Automation

After products ship, the supplier’s system will generate an invoice to send to the buyer in a data format that can be automatically read by the buyer’s systems.

eQuote

Buyer accesses an electronic quote for a special order in an intuitive interface and then transfers the quote to their eProcurement platform.

Support for All Common Data Protocols

TradeCentric provides support for all electronically readable data formats.
