Coupa Continues Accelerated Growth In Europe
New Dublin office opening to support growing expansion in the region
Dublin, Ireland – 09 July, 2015 – Coupa Software, the leader in cloud-based spend management, today officially opened its new European hub in Dublin, Ireland as part of its ongoing growth across the EMEA region. The new office opening follows a rapid 12-month expansion period culminating in the official launch in Eastpoint Business Park, Dublin.
The office launch is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation through IDA Ireland.
Today, Coupa employs 60 people in the EMEA region, with the majority based in Dublin. As Coupa’s fastest growing region, staff numbers in EMEA are expected in the fields of Technical Support, Professional Services, Technical Account Management, Integrations Support, Technical Training, DevOps, Sales, Marketing, Finance and HR. In a year-over-year comparison, Coupa EMEA rapidly expanded with three times the number of customers from Q1 2014.
“Today’s office opening supports our growth in this region as we continue to work tirelessly to help companies across EMEA save millions of Euros in previously unmanaged spend,” said Rob Bernshteyn, CEO of Coupa. “Our cloud spend management solutions are redefining the value that software should deliver to businesses in EMEA and changing how customers define success from enterprise software solutions.”
Richard Bruton TD (Teachta Dála), Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation added that: “Spend management technology is a specific growth sector which we have targeted as part of our Action Plan for Jobs, and in recent years we have seen impressive jobs performance in this area. Today’s announcement that Coupa, a highly innovative global company in this area, is establishing a new office in Dublin and is expected to create 120 jobs in the next three to five years is a great boost for north side Dublin. I wish Rob and his team every success”.
