A PunchOut-enabled website or web portal opens the door to more customers and keeps you front-of-center with the customers you already have.
Corporations, governments, and other large institutions often don’t just prefer that their suppliers have PunchOut-enabled websites or web portals, they increasingly require it.
A seller’s ability to make it easy for a big buyer working within spend management systems often dictates whether the seller gets the business or not.
In order to win the business, sellers need to integrate with the buyers’ eprocurement system, such as Ariba, Coupa, or SAP OCI to name some of the better-known eprocurement platforms.
And the way to do that is a PunchOut-enabled website or web portal, which effectively puts the seller’s ecommerce website and/or catalog inside the buyer’s already established procurement system.
PunchOut ecommerce capabilities are increasingly becoming a requirement of doing business. But meeting that requirement opens the doors to business with some of the biggest buyers in the world.
The PunchOut makes it easier than ever for the buyer to buy.
With a PunchOut integration, a seller turns from just another seller into a preferred supplier.
The PunchOut-enabled seller becomes front-and-center for the buyer because the seller’s products – as well as price, availability, product details, and more -- can be browsed and selected from right within the buyer’s eprocurement system.
The PunchOut makes it easier than ever for the buyer to buy. ERP-grade PunchOut integrations can automatically generate requisitions, purchase orders, and invoices in the buyer’s ERP to greatly reduce manual entry and processing. Every transaction with the PunchOut-capable seller can be quicker and more efficient for the buyer.
A PunchOut-enabled seller separates itself from the competition by putting its products front-and-center for the buyer and making it easier for the buyer to buy leading to a closer relationship and more business in the future.
