Real-Life Example of our PunchOut solution implementation
Utah valley university
UVU decided to use Vurbis’ PunchOut plug-in to transform the way it operates and enhance its service to their students and employees. The implementation of Vurbis’ PunchOut Solution now allows the practice to connect with suppliers’ webshops at any time and from the existing e-procurement system. In addition, the ‘self-learning’ functionality built into the Vurbis’ system enables significant efficiency improvements to be realized compared to traditional PunchOut providers.
The PunchOut integration will also offer convenience for users. UVU faculty and staff will be able to buy the goods and services they need in an online shopping environment similar to those found on popular e-commerce sites. Through the e-procurement platform, users will be able to browse extensive electronic catalogs or “punch-out” to suppliers’ Web sites, all while utilizing contracted rates.
Tia Breck, e-procurement administrator, UVU, explains, ‘’We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Vurbis and I would recommend this fantastic company to everyone. Not only has Vurbis been easy to work with but they have been prompt in responding to any concerns that may arise. While searching for a company to help us with our punch-out solution, we had come across many people who, while trying to be helpful, made the process of getting the punch-out complete sound daunting and complicated. We worried we wouldn’t have the flexibility to change our shop and add features as needed.
When asking about adding specific features, many of the people we talked to requested more money or told us it was impossible with their solution. However, from our first correspondence with Vurbis, we felt very comfortable. They gave us a straightforward explanation that provided the confidence we needed to move forward with the project while giving us the flexibility we needed to make changes. Thanks to Vurbis and their punch-out solution, we have been able to gather more information and keep track of data. The punch-out solution didn’t cause any issues for our shop, and any questions that have arisen in the punch-out process were promptly answered. Their service has been so great; we refer to Vurbis as Superheroes.’’
Using Vurbis’ PunchOut Solutions, Tia Breck, the students and the colleagues have nothing to install and nothing to maintain. Vurbis has great reporting and analysis capabilities, the plug-in is reliable and cost effective, and we can easily add new users, new functionalities and new attributes as UVU continues to grow.
“Vurbis opens up a new chapter in the development of our services and the way in which they’re delivered. We strive to get close to our students and teachers because we know the key to mutual success is in the quality of the relationship between us’’. – Tia Breck | Utah Valley University
