Automated PO Processing Option

If your customer requests it (or, you want to provide more convenience than your competitors), you can allow your customers to electronically process your POs via cXML. This eliminates manual order processing like faxing or phone calls. This in turn helps them save time and hassle, in turn saving costs.

Unique Functions that Lower Costs by Saving Buyers Time

Automated Request for Quote Tool lets you request a quote directly from your supplier’s PunchOut Catalog, saving time with email hunting, phone tag, and faxes.
Automated Catalog Audit Functions saves thousands to millions of dollars over manual supplier catalog audits. See more here.

Rapid Catalog Replication

Sometimes, companies with multiple divisions or subsidiaries operate separate eprocurement systems. Once your suppliers’ catalog data has been loaded into the PunchOutCX platform, they can create different catalogs for all your purchasing systems, with point and click ease, through our powerful Admin Console.

Backend Systems Interface

Where applicable, PunchOutCX allows your suppliers to provide backend systems interfacing, such as eInvoicing, accounting systems and more.

Supplier-Friendly PunchOut Setup Process

After working with thousands of businesses, we know what it takes to get the job done. Our easy-to-follow, service oriented process helps your suppliers get setup as quickly and as painlessly as possible.

Internal Training and Support for Your Suppliers

CoreXpand offers training webinars to arm your suppliers with the expertise they need to maintain and update your PunchOut catalogs quickly should your preferences or requirements change.

Proprietary eInvoicing Option

If you choose, you can request the suppliers who use PunchOutCX to automatically send your invoice directly into whatever system you prefer (accounting, ERP, eProcurement, etc.) after the Purchase Order is processed.

Universal PunchOutCX Platform

Our proprietary technology allows your suppliers to connect with any e-procurement system and provide stable, worry-free PunchOut catalogs.

Level 2 Punchout Catalogs and Beyond

PunchOutCX ensures your suppliers always deliver the highest current industry standard (currently, Level 2) PunchOut Catalogs. We continually refine and improve our own capabilities, so you can be confident they’ll always have access to the best technology and provide you with the best possible online catalogs.

Rock Solid Performance

All the great pages and functions in the world don’t mean anything if your suppliers’ catalogs don’t perform when your buyers need them. PunchOutCX is a product of CoreXpand, a B2B eCommerce solutions provider. For over 15 years, CoreXpand has delivered proven, reliable B2B eCommerce sites for thousands of businesses and millions of users – processing billions of dollars in transactions for Fortune 500 companies, government entities, large universities, and thousands more business applications.

Easy Catalog Management

With IgniteCX’ user-friendly Admin Console, your suppliers can make changes and updates to your contract specific catalog(s), with point-and-click ease.

Adaptable Commerce Engine (ACE) Technology

In some cases, your purchasing organization may be decentralized, meaning not all your buyers have access to your eprocurement system. But the ACE technology behind PunchOutCX allows you your suppliers to enjoy the same customized buyer/shopper experience, with the same contract specific catalog, to your buyers outside your system.

Easy Hosted Catalog Conversions

Most buyers prefer PunchOut catalogs over hosted or "line item" catalogs. If you already have suppliers’ catalogs in your eprocurement system in the form of a hosted (or ‘line-item’) catalog, we can help your suppliers quickly and easily convert them into a more buyer-friendly PunchOut experience.

Fully Adaptable Page Functions

Because PunchOutCX is built on a powerful B2B eCommerce platform that has been perfected for over 15 years, your suppliers have greater adaptability with your catalog pages. This means any requirement, preference, or needs can be met by your suppliers using PunchOutCX. See examples of the kinds of things they can do by clicking here.

RFQ (Bid) Response and Sales Assistance

Our seasoned team of PunchOut experts have worked with countless eprocurement purchasing organizations, including complex government entities. We can help them ensure their meeting your requirements properly, and communicate their capabilities to your organization. We’ll even help them demonstrate their site to you for your final approval.

Robust Reporting Engine

We realize that most eprocurement sytems provide you the reporting your purchasing organization needs. However, if you ever have specific interests or needs about data specific to your supplier’s catalog, our powerful reporting engine lets you track, report, and analyze sales and buyer data for one or all your suppliers’ catalogs (who use PunchOutCX).

Fast, Friendly Customer Support

Our dedicated, experienced team of PunchOut experts are committed to the success and satisfaction of both you and your supplier. If good customer service is measured by "going the extra mile", then our team is made up of marathon runners.

Proprietary Functions Buyers Love

Automated Request for Quote Tool, Automated Catalog Audit Functions and more give your buyers greater confidence and convenience. These functions inspire a preference to order from your site over your competitors. That means more sales, more often.
