PunchOut2Go Guided PunchOut Marketplace Scenarios

Use Case 1: Global organization leveraging dozens to hundreds of independent ERP or eProcurement systems across various business units.

Global Organizations may leverage hundreds of ERPs or eProcurement technologies across their enterprise such as SAP, Oracle, SAP Ariba, Coupa, etc. These Organizations have gaps tracking spend against vendors, global and local, in a centralized manner due to the myriad of technologies leveraged. The solve in this scenario is a Guided PunchOut Marketplace experience that by a punchout vendor matrix, displays the appropriate vendors against the localized or global vendor commerce applications ensuring end-users are simplifying the purchasing process and global procurement teams have the ability to have a centralized reporting application that gives procurement the visibility they need to maintain contract compliance. 

Use Case 2: ERP license-related issues and complexity of multiple endpoints from a single system.

Many ERPs are incredibly complex to manage punchout catalogs across a wide array of vendors. This process in some cases takes buying organizations with vendor organizations months to years to establish. The PunchOut2Go PunchOut Guided Buying Marketplace will provide the abilities to easily on-board vendors, manage the integrations, and provide an intuitive experience to end-users.
