Amazon Business and Compleat Software have teamed up to launch ‘Punch-in’ – a solution aimed at redesigning how employees procure goods. By allowing customers to buy in a way that they are familiar with through Amazon Business, Punch-in simplifies the buying experience while increasing organisational compliance.
The reason this should interest you is that it could open the doors to many more businesses purchasing through Amazon Business, so if you’re products are available to business buyers this should translate into sales down the road.
Created by Compleat Software, with Amazon Business, the feature enables buyers to start their purchasing journey directly through Amazon Business and submit the cart to their e-Procurement system for Purchase Order creation and reconciliation.
Amazon Business intercepts each order & automatically creates a “request to buy” within Compleat. Purchase requests can then be self-approved or go through an appropriate approval process, from any device. On final approval, Amazon Business is automatically updated and the order fulfilled.
Finance teams have total visibility & control of all spend commitments before the order is even placed, as well as gaining access to automated accruals and expensed costs management.
Compleat Software also provides powerful automated General Ledger (GL) coding and associated workflow approvals to meet both simple & sophisticated accounting requirements, saving time and resources.
Simplifying the way every business buys & pays for products and services is at the core of everything we do at Compleat. Making this simple & easy for users, whilst maintaining the controls, reporting & management of spend for the business itself. The challenge for businesses is how to leverage that great buying experience whilst complying with the necessary bureaucracy required to diligently control that spend prior to the order being placed & then remove up to 90% of the time required to diligently account for it.– Phil Douglas, CEO at Compleat Software

At Amazon Business, we are obsessed with innovating on our customers’ behalf – and Punch-in is a solution that we are very excited about. This new feature will simplify the buying process for many of our customers.
