Future of Higher Ed Procurement Technology: A conversation with The Ohio State University and Amazon Business

Tuesday, April 25th  |  11:00 AM Eastern


Complimentary Registration



College and university leaders are asking procurement organizations to help address budget shortfalls, better serve end users, and mitigate new risks with fewer resources.

We will explore how you can simplify purchasing, consolidate suppliers, and improve organization compliance—with Amazon.

The Ohio State University will share its journey to manage rogue Amazon purchasing and how, in the process, the university's procurement leader discovered a new procurement technology that can help delight buyers and streamline purchasing.

Join us for a webinar sponsored by Amazon Business where you will gain an understanding of best practices for managing long-tail vendors in your purchasing environment. Explore opportunities for increasing spend through strategically negotiated contracts and discuss and learn best practices for increasing staff productivity, end user satisfaction, and supply chain efficiency through strategic relationships.


Register today for an NAEP webinar sponsored by Amazon Business.
