Did you know that F & F Industrial provides a wide variety of eProcurement (ePro) solutions to help seamlessly integrate your company's ERP with our huge selection of industrial tools and supplies?
Let us show you how F & F Industrial can help lower your transaction costs by contacting our eProcurement department any time by emailing us at PunchOut@FFIE.com or by calling us at 1-800-724-ASAP.
Here are a few of the eProcurement (ePro) integration services we offer:
- PunchOut Catalog: We can assist with connecting the F & F Industrial online catalog directly to your eProcurement or ERP system (e.g. Ariba, sciQuest, Oracle, SAP, etc.). We also offer custom PunchOut catalog options to control exactly which products are displayed to your end-users including the ability to limit product visibility to only contracted items (e.g. NYS Contract PC67225).
- Self-Hosted Catalog: We can provide F & F Industrial's catalog and product information as a file to be uploaded directly into your company's local, or 3rd party eProcurement solution.
What is a PunchOut?
PunchOut is a mechanism by which the eProcurement application makes it possible for a buyer to access a F & F Industrial's Web site from the buyer's own procurement application. The buyer leaves ("punches out") their procurement application and enters the F & F Industrial's Web-based catalog which launches the our website within the buyer’s browser frame. The buyer browses our Web-based catalog and adds items to the shopping cart while both applications maintain their connections. No orders are sent to the F & F Industrial when the user checks out from our PunchOut site. Instead, the shopping cart with the selected items is brought back to your eProcurement application, thus allowing you greater control and visibility over the ordering process.
After the shopping cart is returned, the buyer proceeds through the normal workflow steps, which may include adding additional items to the requisition, canceling or editing the requisition, submitting the requisition, or discarding the requisition. An order is not submitted to F & F Industrial until the buyer has actually added the line items to a purchase order and the purchase order is approved and sent to us by a means of your choosing.
