Whether you're a business owner, CFO, procurement specialist, accounting manager, or a requester, you are involved in some part of the purchasing process. It’s probably safe to assume that you don’t care for long-lasting internet searches for required goods or services. Surely, too, other tasks within the purchasing process such as comparing prices, request creation, and sending POs can all become tedious.
Precoro’s newest integration minimizes and even fully eliminates some of these monotonous tasks. Using our integration with Emapp Marketplace, you’ll be able to browse supplier catalogs in a single marketplace and add items to your shopping cart with just a few clicks instead of switching back and forth between windows and tasks. Continue reading this article to find out more about this integration and its benefits for your company.
How Emapp Marketplace and Precoro integration works
Emapp is a marketplace with multiple Punchout catalogs, including Office Depot, Henry Schein, and Staples. By integrating Precoro with Emapp, you get access to numerous suppliers in one place, which makes it easier to compare products, create shopping carts, and generate POs.
The integration works like this: when Precoro users want to create a PR from within the Emapp Marketplace, they will be redirected to the page with Punchout catalogs. After they have selected the goods they want to buy and summarized their purchase, they will be returned to Precoro, where they will find an automatically created PO. Then the purchasing document will have to go through the approval workflow configured by your company in Precoro.
Using this integration, you’ll be able to find the best deals, submit orders in a few clicks, and manage the whole procurement process in one system instead of exhausting manual items update, paper approval, and long purchase confirmation.
