XMPie, a Xerox Company, today announced the ability to connect with eProcurement systems through a gateway powered by PunchOut2Go. This new capability makes it easier to connect XMPie-enabled web-to-print storefronts with buyers that use eProcurement applications such as Ariba, SciQuest, Coupa, SAP, Oracle and more.
Typically, eProcurement systems are deployed within corporations to increase efficiency and ensure that company-mandated procurement policies are practiced. Such systems enable registered users to purchase from trusted sellers of goods and services. “PunchOut” is a method for purchasing from a supplier’s website from within a buyer’s own eProcurement system.
PunchOut2Go is a recognized vendor of PunchOut solutions, supporting thousands of integrations for PunchOut, electronic purchase orders and invoices on over 70 eProcurement systems in over 30 countries.
The XMPie integration with the PunchOut2Go gateway enables trusted print service providers to offer their XMPie-based VDP and Cross Media services through a company’s eProcurement system. Buyers are able to shop within a uStore-enabled storefront where they could personalize or customize a product and create an order whereby shopping cart and order data would be seamlessly and securely synchronized with their eProcurement system.
“Providing our customers the option to add a PunchOut2Go gateway to their web-to-print service offerings, opens for them the door to Enterprise-class customers,” said Jacob Aizikowitz, president, XMPie. “This is a real differentiator and likely to be a significant competitive advantage for our customers, as it opens the broad Enterprise market to practice web-to-print via their native eProcurement systems.”
The XMPie integration with PunchOut2Go is an XMPie Professional Services offering and was shown at the XMPie/Xerox Booth at Graph Expo 16, which took place Sept. 25 – 28 at the Orange County Convention Center North in Orlando, Florida.
