How SAP and Amazon Business Work Together to Simplify Your Product Search
Learn how our latest integration delivers the consumer-simple shopping experience you expect from Amazon – customized to automate compliance with your purchasing policies.
As the result of our recent partnership, Amazon Business has become a new source of supply for the Spot Buy capability in SAP Ariba procurement solutions. That means users of guided buying can now search for items and receive results from Amazon Business – along with other online stores, e-commerce providers, and direct sellers – in a single, seamless process.
The goal? To provide all users just what they need, and nothing more, in three quick steps:
What the new search experience offers
While Amazon Business SKUs were previously available through the Level 1 PunchOut catalog in SAP Ariba buying solutions, the new technology integration uses a real-time search API to deliver the simple shopping experience Amazon is known for.
What does this mean for you and your users? Better search, enhanced functionality, and smoother checkout – all within your spending and compliance controls.
And when a user selects Amazon Business items for checkout, the shopping cart is instantly transferred for automatic processing within guided buying.
