Easily set pre-approved budgets using the Budget Management tool. Allocate funds to your buyers and empower them to make timely and transparent purchasing decisions.
Drive compliance with internal purchasing policies by easily defining policies that identify preferred, restricted, and blocked product categories or sellers (Guided Buying is available with Business Prime) and set spend limits. Identify appropriate approvers for buying policies, and assign multiple approvers if needed, each with the ability to grant permission for a fast turnaround on eligible buyer orders.
Use Guided Buying (available with Business Prime) to flag products or sellers that your organization recommends and restrict or block non-preferred product categories.
Provide clear rationale for buying policies and approval workflows so that purchasers understand the intent.
“With Amazon Business, teachers create a list on their classroom computer and submit. Workflows immediately take over, streamlining approvals. Teachers get exactly what they need, and they get it in two days.” – Bradley Sponaugle, Assistant Treasurer
“What we’ve done is allow each center director to manage their own regional budgets, and all purchases go to the center director to review and approve. So for example we have ten centers in Southwest Asia, and have identified ten approvers, creating a self-service model for our centers.” — Tina Stockov, Procurement Manager
“Amazon Business creates a balance between empowerment and speed, while making sure we’ve got compliance with internal spending policies, too.” — Nathaniel Polky, Director of Information Systems
