Amazon Business launches ‘Punch-in’ a new procurement solution for businesses to simplify the buying experience


This article is brought to you by Retail Technology Review: Amazon Business launches ‘Punch-in’ a new procurement solution for businesses to simplify the buying experience.

Amazon Business has launched Punch-in, a tool now available to business buyers of all sizes in the UK and US. Punch-in is currently available with Compleat Software.

Amazon Business comments that Punch-in is the latest feature in a growing suite of procurement products that simplifies the buying experience, while increasing organisational compliance. We created this feature to enable buyers to start their purchasing journey directly on Amazon Business and submit the cart to their e-Procurement system for Purchase Order creation and reconciliation.

“At Amazon Business, we are obsessed with innovating on our customers’ behalf – and Punch-in is a solution that we are very excited about. This new feature will simplify the buying process for many of our customers,” said Nabil De Marco, Director of Amazon Business Europe

“For those companies with buyers who enjoy the familiar UI and functionality of Amazon Business, Punch-in will enable them to start their journey on our website while remaining within their organisation’s buying policy guidelines. We look forward to continuing to receive feedback from our customers so we can keep improving and expanding this offering for them.”

Prior to the launch of Punch-in, buyers would start their purchasing journey within their e-Procurement environment in order to remain compliant with their organisation’s buying policies. In some cases, buyers would bypass Punchout and make purchases directly on Amazon Business due to its familiar interface and easy-to-use functionality. 

With the added convenience of Punch-in, organisations can allow buyers to start the purchasing journey on Amazon Business and complete the purchase order in their existing e-Procurement system once they are ready to check out, helping administrators keep more of their spend in one place.

New partners are currently being added.
