The Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES) is the administrator of financial services for Oklahoma state government. One of its core missions is to help the many different agencies that make up the state government better manage their spending. OMES adopted Amazon Business to help it consolidate spend and streamline the procurement process. Now, with over 1,200 Amazon Business users and counting, OMES has greater visibility into purchasing data across the state and provides its agencies with a simplified buying process that makes it easy to meet state-mandated procurement and diversity requirements.
A service-disabled veteran and minority entrepreneur, Rodney Marshall started Aldevra in 2009 to sell medical and food service equipment. By meeting the demand for businesses with small, diverse certifications to service government contracts, Aldevra has become a prime contractor for many federal and state agencies. And by listing its products and certifications on Amazon Business, Aldevra now reaches more customers than ever.
Today, large enterprises are streamlining purchasing departments, consolidating buying, and looking for ways to meet diversity requirements through their spending. Pacific Northwest Business Office Products (PNWB), a veteran-owned small business, recognized an opportunity to reach these new customers through becoming a seller on Amazon Business. In its first year on Amazon Business, PNWB revenues increased over 40% — and business is still growing.
Rita Bonarrigo has always had big plans for her small business. At its founding in 1999, The Office Tex was a niche business that sold computer media backup tapes to oil and gas companies.

When The Office Tex began selling on Amazon Business in 2018, it found a way to reach new customers, scale growth, and highlight its diversity certification.
