We are in the process of setting up a punchout to a supplier on our system. Initial requirements have using Model 2b, Punchout from Oracle iProcurement Directly to Supplier-Hosted
Catalog (cXML). This works as expected however business users have also expressed interest in being able to search for products within eBusiness suite without having to punchout to the suppliers site. This feature is available via Model 1 and Model 2 as per the Oracle Punchout configuration document.
Users would like the option to search for items on an external site without leaving Oracle iProcurement (transparent punchout) as well as do a direct punchout.
Has anyone configured multiple models of punchout on a system? Is this possible? Thoughts?
