Coupa and Software AG Partner to Provide Simple and Rapid Integration with leading ERPs
SAN MATEO — October 13, 2017 — Coupa Software (NASDAQ:COUP) and Software AG have partnered to make it easy for companies to integrate Coupa with most leading enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, including those from SAP and Oracle. As part of this partnership, Coupa, a leader in cloud-based spend management, is expanding its CoupaLink certified solutions by adding Software AG’s webMethods Connector.
Software AG worked with Coupa to build a connector that helps customers reduce the cost of software integration. The connector – named webMethods Connector for Coupa - is now certified by Coupa and enables organizations to connect Coupa’s globally networked platform to enterprise applications that are integrated with webMethods.
“Our certified partnership with Coupa will help customers save integration time, cost and work. Our webMethods Connector can work with any company using the Coupa platform,” said Subhash Ramachandran, senior vice president, product management and marketing, Software AG. “This kind of innovation and open-business access is exactly what we’ve come to expect from Coupa over the time we have been working together.”
Just as Coupa is rated among the best platforms for spend management by leading analysts firms, Software AG’s webMethods platform is also rated among the best platforms for application integration by leading independent analyst firms. The webMethods platform enables businesses to quickly integrate on premise systems and SaaS applications, partners, data, and devices.
CoupaLink is an API-based open integration platform that lets technology partners and independent software vendors (ISVs) integrate their products with the Coupa platform. CoupaLink supports APIs for various solution areas including Contracts, Tax Engines, ERP Integration, Invoicing, Payments, Travel & Expenses, and Middleware platforms.
Partners are able to work closely with Coupa to define streamlined business processes integrated via the APIs that result in a well-architected end-to-end solution for customers. These integrated solutions help customers adopt Coupa faster and at a significantly lower cost resulting in quantifiable value for their organizations.
“Coupa is committed to delivering more value faster for our customers,” said Roger Goulart vice president of business development and alliances at Coupa. “We’re proud to partner with Software AG to reduce ERP connectivity barriers that organizations may face. Our open business network gives organizations confidence that connecting to Coupa is fast and easy.”
