What does business spend management (BSM) have to do with all this?

It’s hard for supply chain and finance to works together if everyone is using different language and different sources of data to make decisions. Coupa’s BSM platform brings these departments together by unifying business processes, increasing visibility into direct and indirect spend, and providing a single source of truth. With everyone working on one platform, finance teams have greater control over the impact of the business’s supply chain on the top and bottom lines.
