    Acquisitions - July 2016 Enhancements

    Item Search in Amazon

    Instead of placing an order on the Amazon website and then manually recording and transferring the order information to Alma, this feature streamlines and simplifies the ordering process by allowing you to search in Amazon for an item and then automatically transfer the order information to Alma in order create a PO line for the item. For detailed information, see Item Search in Amazon.
