This option allows you to access the eMarketplace using a web link. When placing an order, purchase orders and invoices can be processed through the eMarketplace.

If you wish to process purchase orders through your own system, you will need to manually record the order details from the eMarketplace and input the order onto your system following your usual business process.

Fully integrated access

This option allows you to fully integrate the eMarketplace with your organisation’s own Enterprise Performance Management (such as Oracle or SAP) or other purchase to pay system.

The cost and time of integration will depend on the amount of work needed and can vary by organisation.

Time to supply depends on what you buy and the procurement route you take. For example, simple requirements purchased directly from a catalogue could qualify for next day delivery.

Goods purchased through other purchase to pay systems or requiring additional work before sending to the supplier may take longer to fulfil.
