Ionis Gets a BSM Booster to Manage Rapid Doubling of Global Suppliers
When Ionis took its subsidiary Akcea public, it quickly began opening new offices to prepare for commercial operations. This presented immediate challenges for AP and Purchasing as they began onboarding twice as many suppliers. Coupa BSM helped them build on their existing Coupa solutions to grow in stride.
Ionis Pharmaceuticals is a global, public company that creates and develops pharmaceutical therapies.
