As a B2B ecommerce business, any opportunity to enhance the relationship you have with your clients should be seriously considered.
In the world of online purchasing, it’s all about efficiency, effectiveness and ease of use. You might have the ideal products for a visitor to your site at a price they’d love. But if the user experience and navigation of your site isn’t up to scratch, the majority will look elsewhere.
B2B ecommerce is on the up, so making it as easy as possible to purchase from your website is so important. Furthermore, making it easy to access your B2B ecommerce website from within an enterprise resource planning (ERP) or procurement system can add to the ease with which customers can shop with you.
This is where Punchout comes in.
What is Punchout?
Punchout is a solution that allows purchasers to browse and buy products from the website of their supplier without leaving the ERP or procurement system. It provides greater levels of connection between suppliers and buyers when seamlessly integrated, helping to engender customer loyalty.
How does Punchout work?
When a buyer is searching through their e-procurement system, they can click on a link that will take them to your ‘Punchout Catalog’. Once in this catalog, they can select the products and purchases they want, add it to their cart, and the order is then sent back to the buyer’s e-procurement system.
From here, the buyer then gets requisition approved and the order is completed, with a notification sent to the buyer to confirm.
What does Cloudfy Punchout offer?
