PunchOut2Go eQuote Integrations

eQuotes from PunchOut2Go empowers B2B sellers to offer seamless eQuote integration with buyer eProcurement, spend management, and enterprise resource planning platforms.

PunchOut2Go eQuotes enable B2B sellers to offer integrated electronic quotes to buyers using any eProcurement spend management or enterprise resource planning application.

With eQuotes from PunchOut2Go, B2B sellers create electronic quotes for any combination of products and services. eQuotes, also referred to as draft cart, are made available for end users to access via PunchOut and to be transferred to the end user’s eProcurement system automatically via cXML, OCI or any method supported.

PunchOut2Go eQuotes are a flexible electronic quoting solution available as:

  • A standalone service with a dedicated web interface through which buyers access quotes.
  • An integration service that automatically communicates quotes to the buyer’s eProcurement platform via the PunchOut2Go Gateway.
  • As a service that works alongside PunchOut catalogs to provide a comprehensive requisition order, quote, and purchase order automation workflow.

From the B2B buyer’s perspective, the quote process is straightforward and involves no manual entry. When the seller creates a quote, the buyer receives a notification email with instructions and relevant quote number to retrieve upon PunchOut.

The buyer then visits the seller’s quote retrieval engine powered by PunchOut2Go to view the quote. From here, they can transfer the quote automatically to their eProcurement platform such as Ariba, Coupa, Jaggaer, SAP SRM, and Oracle iProcurement to continue the approval process. Once approved, a purchase order can be automatically created and dispatched to the  seller’s ERP, OMS, commerce infrastructure via PunchOut2Go’s B2B order automation. Additional  automation options exist for ASN, ACK and eInvoicing.

What is eQuoting?

eQuoting empowers B2B suppliers to create and communicate quotes for goods and services over the web. Buyers value speed and transparency, especially for pricing, but the complexities of B2B pricing can introduce delays in the procurement process.

With eQuotes, PunchOut2Go users generate quotes for orders made via their ecommerce store and for RFQs submitted via other channels. Buyers access quotes in an intuitive interface and then transfer the quote data to their eProcurement platform to continue the procurement process.

PunchOut2Go allows B2B sellers who want to offer eQuotes to their buyers to implement electronic quoting with minimal lead time and no custom development. Quotes are presented in an easily accessed web interface and the PunchOut2Go Gateway handles seamless two-way data integration between the buyer and seller platform.
