“At the City of Kelowna, we have warmly welcomed the ability to consolidate much of our on-line retail shopping and non-contracted spend executed by staff to a single Amazon Business account. This increases our ability to manage expenses with access to business-only pricing and valuable bulk discounts. We believe the use of an Amazon Business account aligns with our ‘best practice’ strategies for our business and accounting focuses.”
