Coupa and Amazon Business announced the launch of Coupa Open Buy at Coupa’s annual Inspire conference on Wednesday in San Francisco. Coupa Open Buy is an easy way for business, higher education, and public-sector employees to search, find, and buy goods with their organization’s required spending and budget controls applied automatically.
Coupa Open Buy with Amazon Business gives Coupa users visibility and instant access to millions of items beyond the purchasing catalogs managed by their employer. This helps reduce the likelihood of employees buying outside their organization’s approved processes.
“Amazon Business and Coupa are committed to delivering maximum value to customers through constant innovation,” said Prentis Wilson, vice president of Amazon Business. “We are responding to customers’ needs with this perfect blend of full enterprise buying control through Coupa and open marketplace selection through Amazon Business. It’s the best of both worlds.”
Coupa Open Buy with Amazon Business is available now in an early access program and will be available more broadly later this year.
