Amazon has launched a new division that it hopes will revolutionise procurement for UK businesses in the same way it has disrupted the world of consumer retail.
Amazon Business will have 100m business products on offer, from office supplies, storage and laptops. Amazon is offering businesses free one-day delivery services on orders of more than £30, as well as VAT-exclusive pricing and VAT invoicing options.
There will also be an Amazon Business Analytics function that will help businesses understand what they are spending their money on, with line managers able to set spending limits on business user accounts.
The service is already offered in both the US and Germany. It serves 400,000 US businesses and generated in excess of $1bn in sales in its first year there. Some 50,000 customers have signed up to the service in Germany.
*Amazon employs some 24,000 people in the UK.
