ESM extends partnership with E&I Cooperative Services

Five-year collaboration deal inked ESM, a leading provider of spend management and eProcurement solutions, announced today that the company has extended its ongoing partnership with E&I Cooperative Services, the country’s largest, member-owned, not-for-profit purchasing cooperative. The five-year agreement gives E&I members easy access to ESM’s suite of spend management solutions. ESM’s affordable, flexible applications help organizations reduce off-contract spend, manage contracts and develop strategic supplier relationships. It is the only suite of spend management solutions built specifically for the education, regional government and nonprofit sectors.

Goodbye tricky integrations, Hello PunchOut2Go

ESM Solutions Announces a New Strategic Partnership with PunchOut2Go What is a punchout In the procure-to-pay world, a supplier’s best option for a contracted catalog is often a punchout. A punchout catalog can be maintained in real-time as a close replication of the supplier’s actual website - much different from the non-configurable product list that is a hosted catalog. Suppliers will often opt for a punchout catalog because they know it will be easy to manage and aesthetically pleasing for buyers. Benefits of a punchout catalog include the use of modern-day eCommerce functionalities such as related products, enhanced search and cross sells, which give users a desirable and familiar B2C experience. The problem? Once registered with an eProcurement provider, many suppliers come to a roadblock if they do not have the technical capabilities to build a punchout catalog or to enable their site for punchout. Even if they do complete an in-house integration, their next customer may use a procurement system that requires completely different formats to achieve punchout.  Luckily, PunchOut2Go has the solution to make B2B integrations easy, saving everyone time and money. Why work together As a leading eProcurement provider, ESM Solutions strives to find the best opportunities to improve the customer experience by collaborating with other innovative companies. For suppliers in need of a catalog, ESM Solutions’ partner PunchOut2Go has the technical expertise to build a punchout from start to finish. “ESM Solutions is excited to partner with PunchOut2Go,” said Tom Van Houten, VP of Business Development at ESM Solutions, “Our partnership will be cost-effective and will streamline the supplier on-boarding process for our customers.” Suppliers can...
