This integration platform offers direct, secure, system-to-system messaging between the institutions procurement system and the IDT e-commerce site to communicate ordering information. The customer clicks a link within their procurement system to order
from IDT, which opens an embedded ordering session on the IDT e-commerce site. Our punchouts have been integrated with Ariba, Jaggaer (SciQuest), Oracle Supplier Network, Coupa, Aquiire, Unimarket, LabCloud, Prendio and other third-party software.
Supported transmission types for punchouts include commerce XML (cXML) and open catalog interface (OCI).
Valuable features of our punchouts include:
- Access is automatically handled between the systems, so no duplicate logins are needed
- Item information is transferred directly to the procurement system before order placement.
- Items have unique identifiers for improved traceability, which allows workflow processes to be implemented on the buyer side prior to PO creation
- Accurate item prices are known to the procurement software at the time of PO creation, leading to more accurate invoicing
