Glad to come across a punchout related post. For those fellow Magento users looking for help with punchout, Iâd humbly invite you to consider allowing us to help you.
www.PunchOutCatalogs.com is the only punchout provider thatâs both an official Magento Solution Partner AND a certified Ariba Supplier Solution Partner. And if thatâs not enough, weâre also official partners with Oracle, SAP, and Coupa as well.

“PunchOutCatalogs.com has deep experience in the B2B eProcurement market and they are a logical partner as we pursue this strategic market.” - Jary Carter, VP of Sales for Magento
In summary, we provide two options for companies using (or wanting to use) Magento to become punchout enabled:
A) SaaS* - You can license a turn-key, pre-customized XML punchout and OCI roundtrip capable Magento Enterprise or Community Edition instance form us, orâ¦
B) IaaS â Potentially leverage our XML PunchOut Gateway and have us do (or help you do) the necessary customization to your existing Magento site
*Option A has been the most popular method by far as itâs the easiest, quickest, and least expensive option. However, we can educate you on the pros & the cons and help you evaluate which way to go.
Regardless, youâll be able to integrate with any eProcurement system, including Ariba Buyer, Oracle iProcurement, SAP SRM, and Coupa while still using the same instance for B2C.
If you are interested in learning more, simply visit our website or send me a message and someone will schedule a demo to show you a live punchout from Ariba to Magento.
If youâd like to learn more about punchout in general, hopefully some of my posts on Aribaâs blog might help: http://goo.gl/BviWd
Look out for a webinar to be announced by Magento in the next month or so as well where weâll talk about punchout and how companies using Magento can take advantage of it to grow their business.
We’ll be attending X.commerce and have a 20 foot booth at Oracle OpenWorld in October. Say hello when you see us!
