Fall release of Dynamics 365 for Operation is coming with feature to Punch-out to external supplier web site and get item and pricing details and create purchase requisition.All the suppliers who support cXML punch-out supports receiving purchase orders and sending invoices using cXML protocol. True value of the cXML lies in delivering purchase orders once approved to suppliers and getting invoices through cXML protocol. It will be great to have end to end implementation of cXML from purchase requisition to invoice to get full value of cXML integration.

By the way, the Accounts Payable category on this request is wrong - should be Procurement and Sourcing not AP.

We have implemented 3 of these vendors so far. All are very interested in getting to the electronic PO transmission phase because that's where we will see a lot of benefit. Without that a user will have to:

1. Create the purchase requisition
2. Add items to the req from the vendor's external catalog
3. Complete the req approval workflow
4. Convert to a po
5. Somehow order this product.

The "somehow" could be:
- A procurement person logging back into the website and manually recreating the order (error prone, pricing may change, etc.)
- Contacting a sales rep at a company and transmitting the purchase order for them to manually recreate the order (error prone, depends on sales rep availability)
- Sending the completed purchase order back to the requester and telling them to figure it out how to place the order.

Any of these completions of the procurement process are not ideal, especially when the confirmation step is built into the punchout/cXML protocol. Please help us be successful with our purchasing and complete the implementation!
