When you don't want to manage supplier catalogue data in your own systems

B2BE’s Punch Out solution means you can connect to your supplier’s online catalogues to browse and requisition what you need without maintaining your suppliers catalogue data in your own system, which means your organisation doesn’t need to maintain it.

The punch out solutions allows you to connect to your supplier’s catalogue, browse and when the requisition is complete you can receive a reverse purchase order which can then be approved before sending it to the supplier for shipment. Meaning you will have a purchase order in your system to receipt against. Or in B2BE’s P2P solution to receipt against.

Key features of B2BE's Punch Out solution

Supplier catalogue maintenance

Managing your suppliers catalogue data is complex and time consuming. This is particularly so when you purchases maybe highly variable and you have a large supplier base. Being able to punch-out to your supplier’s catalogues to browse and requisition what you need means the content is clean and accurate as it is the supplier’s data which they’re responsible for maintaining. B2BE then facilitates the punch out connectivity so it’s seamless.

Secure connectivity

B2BE’s Punch Out solution ensures the connectivity to your supplier’s catalogues is highly secure and defined with your suppliers to ensure shared secrets and passwords remain highly secure and user’s details are correctly passed, to define what products they may have access to, but to also ensure they’re valid users and can create requisitions.

Multi-supplier catalogue connection support

The punch-out solution in the P2P portal means you can configure catalogue access based on the user and their profiles. Similarly the users could have access to many catalogues all from a single user interface to make it easier for users.

Reverse purchase order functionality

Once a user has created their requisitions B2BE’s Punch Out and EDI solutions support the reverse purchase order functionality. The reverse purchase order is passed back to the buyer as an EDI file to follow internal approval processes before a purchase order is issued, which could similarly be send via EDI.

Workflows

Of course the reverse purchase order could be sent to the B2BE approval workflow and can be approved based on the user, the hierarchy and functional approval requirements and a purchase order then issued. Goods could then be received using the goods receipt workflow. So how you want a punch-out solution to work is easily setup and configured.
