PLANERGY®, the leader in Spend Management for mid-market enterprise today announced a new integration for the PLANERGY Spend Management platform with Amazon Business.
Seamless integration between PLANERGY and Amazon Business enables a centralized purchasing experience, with real time order availability through Amazon Business’ extensive catalogue, and supports a compliant spend management experience as orders are approved prior to being fulfilled.
The integration allows mid-sized businesses to create purchase requests leveraging Amazon Business that will then seamlessly run through their automated procurement approval workflows in PLANERGY.
When orders are approved, PLANERGY instantly creates a purchase order (PO) that is linked to a customer’s Amazon Business order by the PO number, eliminating the need for manual entry. This makes the process easy, worry-free, with no additional procurement steps. Once the Amazon Business order is submitted, the fulfilment processes begins, and order confirmations and ship notices are sent along the way, allowing for a fully tracked order.
“Enterprise businesses are increasingly looking for better ways to manage their spend, gain spend transparency, increase spend under management, reduce maverick spend, and increase procurement compliance,” said Michael Higgins, PLANERGY CEO. “At the same time, they want to make it easier for their staff to buy what they need when they need it, at the best price, to ensure operations continue to run smoothly. PLANERGY’s integration with Amazon Business provides the best of both worlds.”
