WHAT IS PUNCHOUT?

Punchout links a buyer's eProcurement application directly to our website. While in their procurement application's browser frame, a buyer "punches out" to our website without ever leaving their platform. The user can browse our website, search for products, and build shopping cart. When ready to check out, the user is directed back to the procurement application to complete the purchase. An order is not submitted until the purchase order is approved through the procurement application and transmitted to Crawford Electric Supply.

THE BENEFITS

  • Up-to-date product and pricing information
  • View product details, product images, MSDS sheets, and more!
  • Convert your quotes to orders
  • Real-time pricing and availability helps save time in shopping process
  • Find what you need when you need it


HOW IT WORKS


Buyer searches eProcurement system


Buyer selects link to supplier's punchout catalog


Buyer punches out to supplier's catalog and adds products to cart


Order is sent back to buyer's eProcurement system and requisition is approved


Order confirmed and notification sent to supplier for approved order
