IBM WebSphere Commerce and PunchOut2Go

Part of IBM’s WebSphere range of enterprise software applications, WebSphere Commerce is a complete B2B and B2C e-commerce solution that offers rich cross-channel retail functionality. WebSphere is popular with midsize and large enterprise retailers, including some of the largest online sellers in the world.

PunchOut2Go For WebSphere Commerce is the easiest way to provide Websphere punchout that integrates a seller’s WebSphere Commerce store with a buyer’s back-end procurement or enterprise resource planning platform.

Our integration has been certified and validated by IBM WebSphere, and is used by businesses globally to facilitate scalable and inexpensive B2B e-Procurement integration.

PunchOut2Go integrates with WebSphere via the PunchOut2Go Gateway, a proprietary software service that mediates communication between e-commerce applications and e-procurement systems. We handle the complex business of translating data and feed formats between applications so that buyers can seamlessly punchout from a WebSphere store to their company’s back-end procurement system.

From the buyer’s perspective, the procurement process couldn’t be simpler. First, they choose your WebSphere Commerce store from within their e-procurement interface:

  • The buyer is automatically redirected to and authenticated with the WebSphere store.

  • The buyer then selects products from within the WebSphere interface.

  • When they are finished, instead of checking out, they punchout to their e-procurement system. PunchOut2Go transfers the cart data  from WebSphere Commerce to the buyer’s platform as a requisition.

  • When the order is approved within the e-procurement system, PunchOut2Go sends the purchase order back  to the WebSphere store for fulfillment or other end-points.

  • PunchOut2Go also supports integrations for  acknowledgements, shipping notifications and invoicing between the two platforms.

IBM WebSphere Commerce Integration for Coupa

The Coupa spend management platform empowers businesses to take control of procurement. Businesses that use Coupa expect their suppliers to provide e-commerce punchout via cXML.

With PunchOut2Go, Coupa users can shop in your Websphere Commerce store before seamlessly punching out to Coupa.

IBM WebSphere Commerce Integration for SAP ERP

SAP ERP is the one of the most widely used enterprise resource planning platforms in the world. If your B2B WebSphere Commerce store doesn’t integrate well with SAP via OCI, your business is cut off from a large part of its market, particularly larger enterprise buyers.

PunchOut2Go provides full order and invoicing integration between WebSphere Commerce and the SAP ERP platform.

IBM WebSphere Commerce Integration for Ariba
