Why you need a PunchOut catalog solution?

Most businesses use procurement or ERP applications like Ariba, JD Edwards, etc. for their business needs. To streamline processes and have greater control and visibility over their procurement processes they expect their suppliers to provide PunchOut with their ERP.

They require their suppliers to integrate their product catalogs and contracted pricing directly into their own procurement system with a web-based PunchOut catalog that can be accessed anytime by them. They also expect most of the transactions like purchase orders, invoices etc go through the same PunchOut instance. If you cannot provide this integration you may lose customers to your competitors

Frequently Asked Questions

What is PunchOut Catalog?

A PunchOut or Roundtrip, also known as PunchOut Catalog or PunchOut Website is a method for B2B buyers to purchase from a supplier's website from within the buyer’s own procurement application. Usually, a buyer can easily log in to the supplier’s eCommerce website and purchase items.

For a PunchOut, a buyer would log into their procurement system like SAP, Coupa, or any other, and click on a link that opens the supplier’s eCommerce store within the buyer’s procurement system. Since it uses single sign-on they do not have to sign in again and can browse through the catalog like on any eCommerce website.

Once they are ready to buy, instead of placing the order with the supplier, the item is sent back to the buyer’s procurement system.

They do not have to enter anything manually and the order goes through the approval workflow inside the procurement system.

Once approved they can either send a PO to the supplier manually or within the same PunchOut framework. Some buyers also pull invoices from the supplier's website through a PunchOut

A customer of mine has requested to set up a PunchOut Catalog, how can VARStreet help me?

All VARStreet eCommerce stores are PunchOut enabled, and we have done hundreds of PunchOut implementations with almost all known procurement systems.

If you are an existing customer, please get in touch with our support or sales to set up a PunchOut catalog for your customer.

If you are a new customer, you will need a VARStreet eCommerce subscription to create a PunchOut catalog. Please get in touch with our sales team, and we can guide you through the process.

How much time does it take to create a PunchOut website?

We have implemented PunchOut websites for almost all known procurement systems. We can complete a PunchOut catalog for existing customers within a day to a few days depending on the requirement.

New customers will also need to set up an eCommerce store with us for this to work. In most cases, you can be up and running with a PunchOut catalog in 1-2 weeks.

Which eProcurement systems have you implemented PunchOut for?

We have currently implemented PunchOut with almost all known procurement systems like SAP, Jaggaer (Formerly Sciquest), Ariba, Oracle PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Coupa, Oracle iProcurement, ESM, Workday, Vinimaya, and many others.

I have more than 5 customers requesting PunchOut. Will I need 5 separate stores?

Absolutely not. We have customers who have almost 10+ PunchOuts with different procurement systems running on the same store.

Since VARStreet comes with a default functionality where the catalog and pricing shown on the store can be easily configured for a login, you can practically have any number of customers using PunchOut with varied procurement systems on the same store.

We also support landing page configuration by logins so you can configure the look and feel of the store based on the customer and give your larger customers a highly personalized and special treatment.

Can I use VARStreet for PunchOut with my own eCommerce provider?

We prefer to provide PunchOut on our eCommerce platform as our eCommerce is PunchOuts ready. It also makes a lot of sense for suppliers to get on VARStreet's eCommerce platform, as most customers requesting PunchOut would be large B2B buyers and very few eCommerce stores can handle B2B needs like VARStreet.

VARStreet is not just eCommerce, you get much more than just a PunchOut-ready eCommerce platform when you buy VARStreet. Please click here to set up a demo of our PunchOut-ready eCommerce platform.

Once done, we set up the PunchOut implementation in our QA environment for the customer to test. Upon a successful test, we move it to production quickly. All of this is completed within a few days.

I do not have the technical bandwidth to interact with my customer who requested PunchOut. Can VARStreet help me there too?
