CUNA Strategic Services (CSS) has selected Amazon Business, a procurement solution that helps organizations reshape their buying process, as the newest alliance provider. The collaboration will allow credit unions to combine the selection, convenience and value they expect from Amazon, with features that can help improve their business operations.

“We’re thrilled to bring on Amazon Business as our newest strategic alliance,” said CSS President Barb Lowman. “With a proven procurement solution that includes discounted pricing on an extensive product selection, budgets and roles for authorized purchasers and strategic insights from the built-in analytics, Amazon Business will provide numerous beneficial efficiencies for credit unions.”

Amazon Business provides access to hundreds of thousands of suppliers, including small, diverse and local sellers, who offer business-only selection and quantity discounts. With Amazon Business, credit unions can enjoy convenient shipping options on hundreds of millions of supplies across categories like office, IT, breakroom, janitorial and personal protective equipment. Additionally, credit unions will have access to a variety of time-saving features so their teams can get the supplies they need—when and where they need them—allowing them to focus more time serving their members and community.

“Making online purchasing easier for organizations of all sizes and industries is among our top priorities,” said Paul Vignati, head of financial service sales at Amazon Business, where he advises financial institutions on procurement and strategic sourcing. “We’re inspired by CUNA’s commitment to credit unions and look forward to helping members simplify their buying process so they can focus on the communities they serve.”
