eProcurement systems and supplier partners
The industry standard for a catalog solution is the punchout catalog also referred to as Supplier Hosted. Once you’ve enabled punchout, you can buy products on our website easily through your eProcurement system. Just add products to your cart and the selected products can be “punched back” into your procurement system for automated order approval by staff such as lab managers, health and safety, and finance, before the order is placed. One value of punchout is that you will have all your purchasing and supplier information in one easy to report system – allowing strong control and management of your supply base.
Our eProcurement connections are in place worldwide across a wide network of integration platforms. Working closely with our own integration partner, Liaison, we can offer "any to any" connections to our customers. We can match to almost any format, so if you have specific requirements that are unique to your business we can discuss how we can meet your specifications.

A buyer hosted catalog is a customized file containing all product data, including your personal and list pricing which is produced and maintained by Thermo Fisher. The catalog file is uploaded to your procurement platform, where you can search, compare, and purchase products electronically. Some platforms also use a “Marketplace” feature where our products, prices, delivery times etc. can be compared directly against our competitors. Examples of catalog based procurement platforms are SciQuest, cc-Hubwoo, and Science Warehouse. Thermo Fisher Scientific operates with a number of catalog formats including .XLS, .CIF, .CSV, .XML, and .TXT.
The B2B process
We have a number of partners with whom we've implemented a complete electronic order-to-acknowledgement-to-invoice solution, sometimes known as a "full circuit" setup. The procure to pay cycle is a seamless transaction process that reduces cost, automates approvals, and gives customers the flexibility to access products and services whenever they need them. Take advantage of a fully electronic order-to-invoice solution all within your eProcurement platform.
