Shop millions of products within Fraxion's eProcurement software with PunchOut catalog integration
Centralize and streamline purchasing
The process of manually purchasing goods from a supplier's catalog can be time-consuming. If your eProcurement software doesn't support internal catalogs, you might find yourself logging in to an online catalog several times, obtaining quotes and gaining approval before a purchase order can be generated and manually sent to a supplier. Even with an in-house catalog connected to the procurement system, the catalog may not necessarily reflect accurate pricing or stock availability, leading to additional emails and phone call enquiries.
Wouldn't it be great if you could navigate from your purchase request directly to a supplier's online catalog in real time, add items to your cart, and have those items reflect in your purchase request as soon as you check out? With PunchOut catalog integration, you can do exactly that!
