eRequester - Vendor Punchout and Curated Catalogs

Punchout Simplifies Purchasing & Curated Catalogs

Punchout allows users to browse a supported vendor’s website, create a shopping cart with items from their catalog, and then automatically load the data into an eRequester Requisition that gets routed for approval. Once approved, the order is electronically transmitted back to the vendor as a PO for fulfillment. You can’t get an easier purchasing & requisition experience.

Punchout gives your organization the choice to grant access to your vendor's complete online catalog or to a curated catalog of pre-approved items. That way you maintain the same level of purchasing efficiency and oversight with improved control over preferred vendors and items.

Add curated catalogs with Mid-tier Punchout to manage regularly ordered items that can be accessed like your own easy to maintain ecommerce site. Once your catalog is complete, users can easily shop and find items by filtering by Class, Category and even by Vendor. Each requisition is then handled using the same flexible approval workflow and routing rules that make eRequester a top-rated purchasing automation system.
