B2B Cost Savings for Suppliers

Some requisitioning systems offer the ability to PunchOut to a vendor's website; but PunchOut is only a small part of having a B2B (business to business) integrated system. Point Purchasing, in addition to PunchOut, offers B2B integrated Purchase Orders, Order Confirmations, and Vendor Bills -- the full circle of the ordering process. Point Purchasing implements cXML technology, an open standard.

Order Management

Through Point Purchasing, suppliers can securely receive, process, and transmit B2B documents minimizing the expense and manual effort required to manage orders.

Order Fulfillment

Point Purchasing enables suppliers to automate and streamline the order fulfillment process to help ensure that products and services meet customers' requirements, including quantity, time of delivery, and shipping method. Suppliers can send real-time status updates and shipping information to buyers, thus preventing possible returns/disputes in the future.

Vendor Bills

After a PO has been fulfilled, vendors can transmit an electronic invoice to Point Purchasing. Let Point Purchasing automate the reconcilliation process with a three-way match between PO, packing-slip, and invoice. Point Purchasing can be configured to allow varying levels of strictness regarding price overages.

Reduce Days of Inventory Coverage

Increase inventory turns and reduce cost of inventory coverage resulting from integrated ordering efficiencies.

Faster Billing

B2B transactions make it easy for suppliers to quickly generate invoices based directly on Purchase Order information, helping to ensure rapid payment and fewer invoice disputes.
