Punchout & Catalog Enablement Strategy

Contract Enablement

Another way to control more spend is to enable specific contracts on your existing eProcurement platform. The more E&I contracts you have enabled, the more cost savings you can realize.

If you’re currently benefitting from using E&I contracts, but they aren’t enabled on your platform, you are very likely leaving money on the table. And if you have some of our contracts enabled, why not more? E&I has contracts with leading suppliers — let us help you get more of them enabled so you can drive increased cost savings.

Punchout Strategy

What if you could punch out from your existing eProcurement platform to a no-cost, pre-loaded marketplace that also serves up additional contracts in a secure, controlled environment?

With VERVE, you can. E&I contracts are pre-loaded into this innovative marketplace, providing access to a wide range of products and services.
