- Company integrates business solution into its purchasing management process in Spain
- The new marketplace, recently launched by Amazon in Spain, will enable energy companies to streamline and speed up their purchasing processes
Cepsa has become the first company in Spain to incorporate the Amazon Business solution into its procurements processes. This is yet another step in the company’s innovation and digital transformation drive. The project has entailed Cepsa incorporating the Amazon Business interface and catalog into its purchasing tool to streamline, speed up and enhance user experience for its staff.
The platform is a virtual marketplace Amazon uses to offer a specialized digital environment for managing business purchases such as office supplies, technology and industrial equipment, and more. Besides a high level of automatization in purchasing, the solution facilitates and speeds up processes and gives Amazon Business responsibility for coordinating order logistics and billing. Meanwhile Cepsa’s procurements team will define the catalog and suppliers registered in this new system and will act as account administrator.
Cepsa will use the solution to continue working with its regular suppliers but will also gain access to many more that already market their products on Amazon Business.
The tool is available to Cepsa’s staff in Spain as of today and will be gradually rolled out across the other countries where the energy company and Amazon Business operate.
Cepsa’s procurements director, José Antonio Valgañón, said: “Our purchasing management requirements are extremely complex and very demanding. Amazon Business offers us the opportunity to streamline and speed up our existing processes, maximize logistics efficiency and enhance our staff’s user experience.”
