On Monday, our article focussed on Alexa for Business entering the workplace. Now, new functionality for Amazon UK has been announced after its very successful launch earlier this year.
Following the introduction of Amazon Business in April 2017, business is booming for Amazon. As a result, the company has announced new functionality to the platform.
Businesses can now pay by invoice and use net 30-day payment terms. Optimisation of its search and filter functionality has also been optimised. Therefore, users can now find products that display net prices and offer VAT-inclusive invoicing options.
In addition, new catalogue curation tools enable businesses to configure the online platform in line with their own business policies. This provides businesses with the ability to restrict particular categories and products in line with their requirements.
Bill Burkland, Head of Amazon Business says:
“We’re working hard to continually introduce improvements that provide even greater selection, value and convenience to business customers looking to streamline their procurement, enabling them to save time and money, and increase their productivity,”
“The latest suite of Amazon Business features has been driven by the feedback we’ve received from our customers and are designed to enhance the efficiency, visibility and controls our business customers want in their procurement process.”
90,000 UK Firms Buy from Amazon Business
Over 90,000 UK firms now buy from the Amazon Business. The combination of next day delivery, VAT exclusive prices, management of bulk VAT invoices and an analytics’ module that enables users to monitor their monthly spend is proving a popular proposition.
According to Amazon, businesses that have already signed up to Amazon Business in the UK include sole traders, SMEs and multi-national organisations, including ones listed on the FTSE 100.
