Amazon Business serves more than five million businesses and generates $25 billion in worldwide annualized sales. Via end-to-end integration into their own purchasing system via PunchOut, small and medium-sized businesses, as well as large enterprises benefit from the selection even from within their eProcurement solution. In these so-called PunchOut integrations, the purchase experience today must be initiated from the eProcurement solution, with the user “punching out” to Amazon Business’ store and creating the shopping cart that will be submitted for approval in the eProcurement software. This process takes on average 2.7 days to complete, the users have to use different environments to search for products and training is necessary to build up the knowledge about the interaction of multiple systems.
The Integrated Search with Amazon Business to boost your eProcurement system
Our latest innovation is to deliver an Integrated Search experience to all our business customers. The goal was to build a completely integrated Amazon Business search experience within any eProcurement system. With Integrated Search, Amazon Business provides buyers easy access to hundreds of millions of products within their system landscape, and them benefiting from business-only pricing and selection. They search for relevant products, select the right one from all available product offers and order as usual in just a few steps.
Amazon Business's Integrated Search solution is a perfect add-on to our standard catalogs in Onventis and helps us to further increase our process efficiency on an international level.

Most purchases start with a search for a product. So why not do so directly in your existing eProcurement system? Customers, who are already launched with this feature, expressed a “strong preference of Integrated Search over PunchOut”, where the user can stay within the familiar system environments when searching for an Amazon Business product.
