Amazon Business has best-in-class inventory management tools. By using these tools to track what you’re buying and when, you can understand what you may be buying too much of and avoid purchasing at the wrong time.
By learning about your inventory, you can find opportunities to order certain office supplies in bulk. For example, if you get through a similar number of notepads each month, it makes sense to order everything at once.
Similarly, you can also set up automated deliveries. If the pile of envelopes on your desk always disappears before Friday, set up a recurring delivery for a fresh batch of them every Thursday afternoon.
