PunchOut and Roundtrip ready VAR stores
Your customers can link to your VAR eCommerce
store through their procurement systems.
Your customers don't have to login twice. Your eCommerce
store is launched within the buyers’ e-procurement system.
A pre-configured store with products and prices as
per the contract.
PunchOut is a technology which enables a buyer to access the suppliers website through the buyers own procurement
application. They can ‘PunchOut’ from their procurement system and get directed to your eCommerce store which is
configured and customized for that particular customer with negotiated pricing, terms, etc.
They can browse products from the PunchOut catalog and add them to the shopping cart.
A connection is maintained between both these applications and the buyer’s shopping cart upon ‘checkout’ is redirected
back to their own procurement system for approvals. Once approved, either a purchase order can be created in the
buyer’s procurement system and sent to the supplier via email or fax or in many cases the buyer sends the PO back
through the same PunchOut transaction. In many cases buyer also expects supplier to post the invoices after
shipment in the same PunchOut transaction

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 transaction like purchase orders, invoices etc go through the same PunchOut instance.
If you cannot provide this integration you may lose customers to your competitors
