A new WayneBuy Punchout option
Wayne State University's Purchasing Department is partnering with Apple to simplify the ordering process for Apple computers. Purchasing will streamline the requisition and ordering steps by using WayneBuy
Why the Change?
The University is looking for ways to streamline the order process. A collaboration between Wayne State's Procurement Department and Apple Computer have now made it possible to place orders simply by punching out to Apple's website. Unlike most punchout options, the Apple Punchout will open a second browser. However, you still use the new browser to search for the products, parts, or peripherals you need, and add them to your shopping cart. Orders will be placed more quickly with Apple, and the invoicing process will be streamlined.
The new punchout option with Apple will allow you to build your requisition through their comprehensive web interface. All deliveries should be sent to Central Receiving at 1200 Holden, to ensure secure delivery to your office. The new interface will automatically establish a purchase order and corresponding electronic invoice for an effortless billing and payment process.
- Easy and convenient punchout ordering
- Electronic invoicing
- Deliveryto 1200 Holden for redistribution to your office
- Paperless ordering, Shopper only role can assign the cart for completion and approval
- Email notifications for real time order status updates
Apple is a Strategic Supplier in WayneBuy. This means, that the order process is as simple as logging into WayneBuy, clicking on the Apple punch-out catalog, filling a shopping cart, and checking out in WayneBuy. In addition, those persons on campus with shopping cart capability (essentially the entire campus community) can now make paperless requests for Apple equipment, parts, and peripherals for their business office by using the Assign a Cart function.
