For Suppliers

eCatalogue Image

The electronic catalogue integrates into existing procurement applications through a standard routine that drops the details into your orders, which can then be sent to suppliers at the click of a button.

Open ECX eCatalogue saves time and cost by reducing product selection errors and price mismatches. Benefits can be measured through operational performance, supplier cost-to- serve and potentially closer supplier-buyer relationships.

Key business processes

Open ECX eCatalogue supports key procurement business processes:

  • The e-Catalogue can be seamlessly accessed from within your Purchase Order session.
  • No additional usernames or passwords are required by end-users.
  • The user builds a ‘basket’ of products.
  • Search by product description, manufacturer, supplier, product category, etc.
  • View detailed product information and compare items side-by-side on screen.
  • The user ‘checks out` when finished reviewing and selecting items.
  • The basket data is transferred back into your standard Purchase Order.
