Open Catalog Interface (OCI) is an open and standardized catalog data interface for the exchange of catalog and order data between purchasing programs (eProcurement systems such as “SAP Enterprise Buyer Professional”) and external online shops. The OCI punchout standard was defined by SAP. Via this interface, the buyer directly accesses the current catalogue data in the supplier’s online shop and compiles the desired articles in the shopping cart. After completing the item selection in the supplier’s shopping cart, the buyer can then use a punchout to transfer all relevant information from the order to their purchasing system. This means that the order, with the order data from the supplier’s external online shop, can pass through the company’s internal ordering process at the purchaser’s with any approvals, budget checks, etc. as normal.
Gutekunst Federn offers this OCI punchout catalogue interface in its Spring shop for simplified internal order processing. Ask your IT department about the possibility of using an OCI punchout interface for internal order processing in the Gutekunst Federnshop.
- Quick selection of suitable metal springs in the spring shop
