A punchout catalog (sometimes styled as “PunchOut” or “punch out”) is a web-based product catalog provided by a particular supplier, customized for a particular buying organization, and created specifically to connect with that company’s eProcurement or purchasing software system. Each punchout catalog contains the customer’s unique items and prices.
Punchout catalogs vary from supplier-to-supplier based on the supplier’s capabilities and the buying organization’s requirements. For this reason, the ability to provide useful, intuitive punchout catalogs, with innate flexibility, is key. In other words, punchout integrations are not a “one-size fits all” process.
