    ProcureDesk vs. Procurify: Punchout catalogs

    Punchout catalogs streamline the purchasing process for an entire company, whether established or just a startup company. Punchout catalogs enable employees to browse the vendor’s website, pick up the item they need to purchase, and return it to the procurement process and systems.

    This allows the user to maintain the shopping experience of the vendor’s website and then bring that information back into the procurement system for approvals and issuing a purchase order approval process. This is beneficial for procurement teams.

    Moreover, purchasing system like ProcureDesk automatically dispatches the purchase order process to the vendor so that the employees don’t need to go to the vendor’s website to purchase the product or service.

    ProcureDesk is a powerful platform that offers punchout integration with 100+ vendors, including large retailers like Amazon, Staples, Office Depot, and many more.

    Procurify, on the other hand, is a business platform that offers punchout for less than 10 vendors.

    ProcureDesk doesn’t have any such card program. However, ProcureDesk integrates with Brex to provide such capabilities.
