If Amazon Business came to Russia, it would «kill» not only higher prices, bureaucracy, and inefficiency; it would cut «bribery» area within indirect procurement as well. These days I am in Seattle and have visited friends who work in procurement for Amazon. We talked about purchases, and they presented Amazon Business in details. What can I say? Only WOW! In comparison with Russian market practice, it looks like when you have only one wheel in hand, but somebody has a locomotive. The facts speak themselves; local market practice too far from that, but we need to change it immediately.
