With Coupa, A&N Media Spearheads Closed-loop Procurement
LONDON – 24 May 2012 – Coupa Software, the fastest growing provider of spend optimisation software, announced today that the leading UK-based media company, A&N Media, has selected Coupa as its e-procurement solution.
In a rapidly changing market environment, A&N Media identified a need for a flexible, intuitive e-procurement solution capable of supporting future business requirements. Following a thorough market review, A&N Media selected Coupa as it offers a user-friendly, cloud-based solution which will assist in driving user adoption whilst easily integrating with the company’s Sourcing, HR and Accounting solutions. The implementation of Coupa alongside existing platforms will provide A&N Media with a closed-loop procurement system capable of driving significant business synergies.
‘Whilst other solutions offered similar functionality, we felt that Coupa’s unique interface was intuitive and unlike anything else in the market,’ said Nick Jenkinson, Head of Procurement at A&N Media. ‘Coupa’s platform makes the Monday morning buying process much more aligned with the Sunday night web shopping experience – we believe this is key to true user adoption. Consumerisation and cloud-based technologies are key business priorities, and as a result, Coupa fits the bill perfectly – it’s a best-in-class, cloud-based solution capable of efficiently managing all our procurement needs whilst maintaining a look and feel that users can really relate to.’
‘We’re delighted that A&N Media has chosen the Coupa platform as it rapidly expands throughout Europe,’ said Rob Bernshteyn, CEO of Coupa. ‘A&N’s values of technology innovation, collaboration and positive user experience closely mirror our own. The company’s decision to choose Coupa’s platform affirms why we are the leader in the space – we focus on our customers and their goals.”
A&N Media’s deployment of Coupa’s full platform, including Expense Management and Spend Analytics, will also include full integration with the company’s Sourcing, HR and Accounting solutions.
