4 Benefits Suppliers can Enjoy by Offering Ariba PunchOut


Increase your Base of Large Customers Unlike B2C customers, large companies and government buyers commonly use an Ariba procurement system to conduct online transactions. Now as a supplier, you can turn them your customers if you provide an easy way to connect their procurement application with your website. You can achieve this by offering Ariba PunchOut functionality to your customers. It provides seamless integration and makes it easier for customers to purchase via the procurement system. No wonder, this functionality is considered to be one of the best ways to attract and keep your B2B customers loyal. Easily Make Changes in your Catalog With CIF, you know how difficult it can get to make changes in your catalog content. Even for a small change, you have to create and upload the entire CIF catalog, which is tedious and time-consuming. If you are making changes up to 4 times a year, it is acceptable. However, if your business requires you to make several updates per year, it is time to switch over to Ariba PunchOut. It provides a hassle-free way to update product information. Whether it is changing price or description of any product, you can do it effortlessly. Also when your product catalog is huge, it doesn’t make sense to use CIF technology.


No Maintaining Catalogs for Different Customers AribaPunchOut solution reduces the complexity in B2B transactions. This is because it eliminates the need to maintain multiple catalogs for different customers. There is just one supplier catalog that you have to maintain. Just show the product range along with the pricing from that catalog for that specific customer. You have to only maintain a separate PunchOut configuration so that every customer views only those items and services that are applicable to him. Real Time Availability Ariba PunchOut protocol is specifically designed to enable your customers view changes in real time. So when you modify the price or product availability status in your supplier catalog, these catalog changes are immediately available to the customer. Unlike CIF catalog, your customers don’t have to wait for hours or even days to view the changes. This certainly helps to improve communication between you and your customer.
