What is Precoro and Home Depot PunchOut Integration?

Home Depot PunchOut is an integration that seamlessly connects Precoro’s procurement system with Home Depot's extensive online catalog. This integration allows users to "punch out" from Precoro directly into Home Depot’s e-commerce environment, where they can browse and select all kinds of building, renovation, and gardening products. Selected items and their details—such as product descriptions, pricing, and quantities—are automatically imported into Precoro for approval and record-keeping.
