Several disjointed systems didn’t allow for a comprehensive view of spend.

Leaders lacked overall business spend data and contracts information to make strategic decisions quickly.

Need to improve risk management and enforce compliance.


Better spend visibility translated to optimized risk management, better deals with suppliers, and bigger savings to reinvest in organization.

Over 87% of 25,000 global users said Coupa was either better or significantly better than previous applications.

"We've really seen the powerful benefits of information flowing seamlessly end-to-end on the Coupa platform."
