This article will guide through the steps of using a Punchout to create a Purchase Requisition in Purchasing & Inventory (P&I) (formerly known as Adaco). The Punchout functionality is a direct link to the Vendor's ordering portal. The Punchout can be used to view items, add to basket and checkout, just like on a typical ordering website. However, by using the Punchout, the order will be exported directly into a Purchase Requisition.
