Spend Visibility Tutorial:
Spend Visibility, powered by Amazon QuickSight, allows you to quickly discover purchasing insights and analyze purchasing goals through interactive, visual, out-of-the-box dashboards. It is available for Business Prime Small, Medium, and Enterprise plans.
In this tutorial, you’ll learn where to find your Spend Visibility dashboards and navigate to the out-of-the-box Procurement Dashboard. Keep in mind that only a limited number of users in your organization can access Spend Visibility. Check with your administrator if you do not have access.
From the Amazon Business home page, hover on the Account menu drop down to view a list of options. Under Account Details, select Business Analytics.

Once in the Business Analytics section, there are three ways to access Spend Visibility. Review the three options below and select one to open Spend Visibility in a new tab.
Once presented with the "All dashboards" display, you'll notice out-of-the-box dashboards labeled as "Provided by Amazon Business." You may also see custom dashboards that your organization may have created.
The Procurement Dashboard is provided by Amazon Business and available to all Spend Visibility users. The Procurement Dashboard enables you to analyze your trailing twelve months (TTM) total spend and get visual insights on top spending categories, total spend, monthly spend, and a spend-by-month report curated by product category.

“With Amazon Business, we can focus on what the data means rather than on whether it is accurate. We used to review purchasing data every two or three months. Now we can look at it in real time, which makes us much more agile in our decision making.”
