Amazon Business announced that it now has more than one million business customers since launching in April of 2015, offering business-only pricing on millions of products and access to more than 85,000 business sellers.
Amazon Business serves businesses of all sizes and across industries, including hospitals, educational institutions, labs, daycares, government agencies, restaurants, Fortune 50 companies and sole proprietors.
Amazon Business customers include Con Edison of NY, Gwinnett County Public Schools, Intermountain Healthcare, Johns Hopkins University, King County, Mayo Clinic, Siemens in the USA, and Stanford University, among others.
Stanford’s Chief Procurement Officer, Ben Moreno, has been leading a transformative initiative to reduce the University’s administrative burden while updating the procurement experience to consumer-like expectations.
A decentralized structure, and the vast number of commodities purchased within a University environment, makes traditional procurement difficult to manage and lends itself to the more consumer-oriented buying experience of an open marketplace. To provide its campus consumers an open marketplace with increased visibility and seamless purchasing, Stanford University’s Procurement department selected Amazon Business.
