Oracle Procurement Punchout
VARStreet supports complete roundtrip transaction for Oracle procurement system. VARStreet system support both types of connections i.e. cXML based and custom XML based. The custom XML based deployment may take longer deployment time since more time spent on understanding buyer requirements.
The user connects to reseller’s ecommerce store using Single-sign-on method through Oracle procurement system. Reseller needs to ensure that the user credentials are synchronized across both the systems before testing starts.
Submit Shopping Cart
On successful connection, it launches the supplier’s Ecommerce store within the buyer’s own procurement system. Buyer can now browse the store and search for products like they do on any regular Ecommerce store and add items to the shopping cart. Once buyer Submit / checkout the cart, the buyer is navigated back into the procurement application with the cart as purchase request (using cXML / custom XML).
Receive Confirmed Purchase Order
The buyer then proceeds through all the necessary workflow steps – which may include adding or deleting items, cancelling the requisition or sending it for approval to the right authorities etc. Once approved, the buyer then creates a Purchase order and sends it to the supplier portal using cXML.
The shopping cart then verifies for any changes in the PO vis-à-vis the actual shopping cart that was created.
If there are any changes like Item Addition/Deletion, quantity updates, Bill to / Ship to Updates, comments, invoice comments etc., then the shopping cart is updated with these changes.
This shopping cart then creates the supplier Purchase order into the Buyer’s VARStreet Back office for fulfilment.
