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
