As you may already be aware, there are two types of custom catalog accessible through eProcurement integration: “Punchout” or “Hosted” catalogs.

A Punchout Catalog allows you to shop the Thomas Scientific website without leaving your eProcurement application. After “punching out,” you can browse our web-based catalog that features real-time pricing, discounts, and inventory levels. After building your cart, checking out returns your cart back to your eProcurement application.

Punchout Catalogs are a preferred solution because they are dynamically populated and offer continuously up-to-the-minute pricing and discounts, no matter when you browse. You also get a detailed view of product information, including descriptions, images, and specifications; availability and order status; product reviews; and additional documentation and certificates (if applicable).

A Hosted Catalog, also known as a “CIF Catalog,” is a static product list that is uploaded to your eProcurement platform. The catalog includes relevant product data, as well as list pricing and your private pricing. While Hosted Catalogs still provide convenient electronic ordering, the information provided is often limited. Hosted Catalogs have delayed access to new product offerings and often require your attention to approve changes and updates.

Hosted Catalogs are updated quarterly, semi-annually, or annually. While they do not continuously update the way Punchout Catalogs do, they do offer simple, direct access to Thomas Scientific products inside your own eProcurement platform.

How Does it work

How to Use Your Thomas Scientific Punchout Catalog

pdf  How to Use Your Thomas Scientific Punchout Catalog

After logging into your eProcurement software, you can “punchout” to the Thomas Scientific website, which will open in a separate browser window but will still be connected to your eProcurement platform.

You can search Thomas Scientific’s entire catalog by using the search bar at the top of the website, or by using the various category headers.

  • Products can be searched by product name, part number, manufacturer name, and more.
  • Search results can be filtered by criteria including manufacturer, material, size, and model.
  • Selecting an item will bring you to the product page where you will see your organization’s pricing, product availability, and any additional product information.

To add an item to your cart, select the “Add to Cart” button on the product detail pages.

  • All the items added to your cart will show inside of the cart preview.
  • Hovering over the cart preview will show the item details.

Clicking on the cart icon will bring you into your shopping cart where you can adjust quantities, remove items, or check out. You can continue shopping if you’d like to add more items to your order before checking out.

Checking out will automatically bring all the items in your cart back into your eProcurement application.

From there, you can complete the usual purchasing process on your platform.

When you are ready to check out, click the “Checkout” button from within your shopping cart or on the cart preview.

Once the order has been processed within your eProcurement Platform, you can view your order details and status anytime by following these easy steps:

  • Punchout from your eProcurement platform to the Thomas Scientific website.
  • Locate and click the “Order Status” link located just under the search bar.
  • Enter your sales order number or purchase order number.

A page will appear where you can view order details, order status, tracking numbers, and associated invoices for all current and past orders.
