Brady Behrman, CEOA life science research company had set out to search for a partner that could increase their B2B eCommerce online sales via procurement systems, decrease the buyer integration time and improve their current PunchOut catalog functionality. Their search endeavor ended with PunchOut2Go. By implementing the PunchOut2Go Gateway technology, the firm grew PunchOut catalog integrations by 400 percent and achieved double digit sales growth in very first year of implementation. “By providing procurement integration solutions, we assist suppliers to connect to their buyer’s procurement systems in a cost-efficient and uncomplicated manner,” says Brady Behrman, CEO, PunchOut2Go. In addition, PunchOut2Go partners with buying organizations to help streamline their vendor integrations and drive more spend through their procurement system.
Today buying organizations are challenged with getting visibility into expenditures across their organization, cutting costs and increasing overall efficiency of the procurement process. On the other side, suppliers are pressured by their buyers to make an investment and business decision to offer PunchOut Catalog and B2B order automation technology needed to carry out business through the eProcurement channel. “PunchOut2Go is in a unique position–sitting in the middle of the buying and supplying organizations–which provides great insight into the challenges that companies are faced with,” says Behrman. PunchOut2Go offers solutions which allow suppliers the ability to easily integrate any eCommerce application to their buyers’ purchasing system, with an adaptable cloud-based gateway technology, referred to as the PunchOut2Go Gateway. This platform-as-a-service technology sits between the supplier’s eCommerce store and their buyers’ procurement systems, normalizing and harmonizing data such as PunchOut Setup Requests, PunchOut Order Messages, electronic purchase orders, electronic invoices and any other B2B documents that need to flow to formulate the systems to communicate effectively.
Furthermore, PunchOut2Go’s adaptable gateway solution offers unparalleled support to connect any eCommerce application to any procurement system. Suppliers that implement the PunchOut2Go gateway solution are able to leverage their existing eCommerce infrastructure and easily integrate with any of their customers on any procurement system.
