PunchOut integration partner pre-work

This topic describes PunchOut integration partner pre-work.

To facilitate the PunchOut process, Insite commonly works with an integration partner for its PunchOut projects. These integration partners'serve as the "middleware/translator" between the customer's procurement system and B2B Commerce Cloud, allowing Clients to connect to additional customer's procurement systems.

A contract between the client and the integration partner needs to be created prior to starting the PunchOut project. The connection between the integration partner and the Customer Procurement System can be confirmed and scoped as well. Our preferred integration partners have existing connections to many procurement systems allowing them to quickly integrate with B2B Commerce Cloud.

Customer Ship-To requirements are a data topic which need to be discussed (the number of locations which the customer will request to ship-to, and how these locations are identified in the customer's procurement system (AddressId)). More about this topic can be found within the cXML/PunchOut Users & Address ID Mapping section of the PunchOut Configuration and Data Requirements article, but this will need to be identified early in the project.
