alio Vendor PunchOut

The alio Vendor PunchOut (VPO) interface connects alio‘s procurement system to our clients’ preferred supplier’s PunchOut catalogs utilizing standard cXML transaction sets (commonly referred to as “PunchOut”), sent through a secure Internet connection. It provides the ability to electronically request and receive contracted item pricing information into alio.

When purchasing items for your district directly from a vendor, you are able to do the following:

• Create an alio quote from the supplier’s pricing information
• Create an initial requisition from the alio quote without manually entering the pricing information on the requisition
• Electronically submit the PO directly to the supplier
