SAN MATEO, Calif. – December, 4, 2018 – Coupa Software (NASDAQ: COUP), a leader in business spend management (BSM), today announced that AAA Club Alliance, Inc., the third-largest AAA club in the national AAA federation, selected Coupa to support its company growth and help transform its business by advancing and automating its BSM processes.

AAA Club Alliance has been experiencing rapid growth, particularly in its car care division and found a growing need for administrative support in its automotive shops.

“We made all the behavioral modifications humanly possible to boost the efficiency of our processes,” said Michael Sumsky, chief financial officer at AAA Club Alliance. “Now, we are leveraging Coupa’s cutting-edge technology to advance these processes even further and transform our business spend management. This will positively impact not only our front-end employees, but our customers and suppliers as well.”

Coupa’s comprehensive BSM platform and user-centric model will allow AAA to focus on serving its customers rather than administrative tasks.

“We selected Coupa to improve internal efficiencies by increasing the volume of electronic transactions across our lines of business,” said Mark Blair, vice president, supply chain at AAA Club Alliance. “In addition, we hope to benefit from the potential cost savings we can realize through the Coupa Advantage network.”

AAA, in collaboration with Coupa and Acquis Consulting, expects to quickly reach full deployment, after which it will be able to quantify success by measuring invoice automation, growth in savings, and decrease in labor.

Mark Riggs, chief customer officer at Coupa said, “AAA Club Alliance came to us looking to digitize and automate its business spend processes to scale and support its growth. We look forward to being a part of AAA’s transformation and to supporting the company’s ongoing success.”
