Coupa Software Unveils New Inventory Application and Release 11 with More than Sixty New Enhancements Focused on Driving Measurable Customer Success


Company Announces New Innovative Capabilities to Drive Unprecedented Visibility and Savings


SAN FRANCISCO – Coupa INSPIRE Conference – April 17, 2014 – Coupa Software, a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance today announced a new additional application to its product suite: Coupa Inventory. The company also announced a new release of its SaaS solution, Coupa 11. With the expansion of its solutions portfolio, Coupa offers customers the most comprehensive suite of organic, cloud-based financial applications in the industry. 


Coupa Inventory

Coupa continues its expansion of its unified organic suite with the introduction of Coupa Inventory.  This application is critical for improving visibility for companies that utilize internal stockrooms and warehouses. 

Key highlights of the new application include:


Elimination of redundant spending: Coupa Inventory eliminates redundant spending by enabling internal orders through the same easy-to-use shopping experience. With inventory and purchases available in a single place, users can easily find any item they need without having to check multiple systems. With the same interface, they can easily check availability, quantity, and place an internal order without extensive training, all while increasing spend compliance.


Streamlined stockroom management: Coupa Inventory eliminates the need for manual paper processes often found in inventory management. As internal orders come in, pick lists are automatically generated and items that cannot be fulfilled are placed in backorder. When an inventory item runs low, companies can trigger replenishment orders automatically from suppliers.


Improved financial compliance: With cycle counting approvals, customers can create automatic approval chains for specific quantities or dollar amount adjustments to inventory. This means inventory managers are always aware of their inventory stock. And with real-time reports, Coupa enables companies to perform comprehensive audits and minimize fraud as they have all historical transactional data right at their fingertips.


Coupa Inventory is available for early access to select customers, and will be generally available in mid-2014.

“Initially, we learned about the need within the healthcare and food & beverage industries. It is essential to proactively maintain inventory whether it’s doctors ordering medicine, or chefs ordering ingredients for their dinner menu,” said Raja Hammoud, Vice President of Product Management. “These same challenges exist in almost all businesses whether it’s for ordering office supplies, software licenses, or on-hand equipment from a local warehouse. We’re excited that our suite is able to help our customers achieve great success in streamlining this area of their business.”


“As the premier mountain resort company in the world, it’s important for us to have clear visibility into our inventory so that we can continue to deliver an excellent guest experience,” said Anita Weise, Vice President of Procurement, at Vail Resorts. “We look forward to leveraging Coupa Inventory to optimize this part of our business while leveraging the other applications in Coupa’s suite.”
