In the current scenario, the basic problems faced by suppliers are catalog management and aligning catalog with buyers' e-procurement systems. Different e-procurement solutions are tied to different punch-out protocols (Ariba's cXML PunchOut and SAP's OCI Roundtrip). The suppliers are faced with the struggle to create an array of one-off interfaces to deal with multiple buyers.
