Expanded alliance of market leaders aimed at helping clients achieve savings and user adoption
SAN MATEO, Calif. – October 22, 2013 – Coupa Software, a leading global provider of cloud-based applications for finance, today announced a strategic alliance with KPMG Australia. The companies are expanding on the successful alliance already in existence in the USA, to help clients transform their approach to procurement to achieve bottom-line savings.
For most companies, the procure-to-pay (P2P) process typically ties up significant amounts of capital that could otherwise be invested in growing the business. Manual procurement processes, lengthy management approvals, manual reconciliations, and lengthy payment cycles are among the many culprits that contribute to inefficiencies in the process. In addition, the general lack of integration with other business processes and systems create further inefficiencies and high transaction costs. Together, KPMG and Coupa will help reduce these inefficiencies and costs in their clients’ procurement processes.
