* Based on a Forrester-developed composite organization built from data gathered from customer interviews to reflect the value that Amazon Business could have on an enterprise organization that uses Business Prime and spends $1.2M yearly on Amazon Business with 110 purchasers.

"Automating our purchasing process across the organization became a priority as managing p-card spend became near impossible. Not only did Amazon Business provide a Spend Analysis that allowed us to manage and leverage organizational spend and realize huge savings on most of our indirect categories such as IT, Office Supplies, and MRO, but the Amazon Business site automated and streamlined most of the purchasing and accounting processes for us. The time savings has been equally as huge since we process thousands of transactions each year."
