CDPHE partnered with Amazon Multi-Channel Fulfillment (MCF) and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to launch the state’s At-Home Testing Program. In collaboration with the MCF team, the state worked to have their vendor deliver over the counter (OTC) COVID-19 test kits directly to Amazon at Amazon’s fulfillment centers. AWS teams worked with the Office of Information Technology (OIT) to build a custom ordering platform that allows individuals to order test kits. All orders placed by Colorado residents were automatically routed to MCF. As orders were submitted, Amazon picked, packed, and shipped the test kits directly to residents statewide.
MCF worked with CDPHE to quickly stand up a fully integrated ordering and fulfillment operation. Once the state’s inventory was received at Amazon’s fulfillment centers and orders were placed, Colorado was able to begin shipping test kits statewide within hours.
