Amazon Business has introduced a new service, Business Prime, in order to make purchasing easier and more convenient for businesses of all sizes across the UK.
The service provides access to Prime delivery benefits, such as unlimited one-day, same-day and nominated-day delivery services to its members.
Members can also envisage their spend data and identify money-saving opportunities with Spend Visibility. They can also set policies to improve compliance with their purchasing policies and use the Guided Buying feature to maximise their budget.
Powered by AWS QuickSight, the Spend Visibility offers advanced visualisations of company spend in ready-to-present graphics and allowing members to save time.
Administrators of Amazon Business account can use the Guided Buying feature to identify preferred suppliers and products and set specific product categories as restricted.
The solution offers buyers insight into company policies or recommendations while shopping. Businesses can also reduce rogue spend, improve compliance with their purchasing policy and consolidate suppliers using the solution.
Amazon Business UK head Dave Brittain said: “Business Prime enables customers to get the most out of the great selection, pricing and purchasing experience on Amazon Business.
“We continue to listen to feedback from our business customers and are excited to introduce these new benefits, which take the most business-relevant parts of Prime membership and add additional features to make life easier for organisations of all shapes and sizes.
“Our goal is to help businesses drive even more transparency into their procurement process, while ultimately lowering their total cost of purchasing.”
