Global Customer Success on Display at ProcureCon
Industry-leading Customers Speak to Savings Through Coupa Solutions
SAN MATEO, CA — September 28, 2015 — Coupa Software, the leader in cloud spend management, today announced that eight of its industry-leading customers will speak or host round tables from September 28-30 at ProcureCon Indirect West in Phoenix, Arizona. This premier conference for sourcing executives brings together industry leaders across technology, transportation, food and beverage, consumer products and more to network, share experiences and define best practices.
Coupa customer, Juniper Networks, will provide industry thought leadership and highlight the company’s measureable success realized with Coupa solutions. “Putting procurement in the hands of every single employee was a key part of getting more than $1 billion in spend under control,” said David Hearn, Senior Director, Global Supplier Management at Juniper Networks. “Going live in 37 countries in only eight months and fully integrated to SAP allowed us to achieve success faster than even we expected. Picking Coupa, a market proven and highly innovative solution, was an easy decision and we have never looked back.”
At Hearn’s ProcureCon session titled, “Change Management in Procurement”, he’ll share his perspective on the importance of change management for project success. Additional Coupa customers will speak on a range of topics at ProcureCon including procurement operations and category management. These Coupa customers collectively represent billions of dollars of spend being optimized through the Coupa Procure to Pay solution and have achieved hard dollar, bottom line savings.
“We are proud of the measurable results our customers are realizing using Coupa. The results we are jointly achieving in partnership with exceptional organizations such as American Express Global Business Travel, Salesforce.com, and Con-way are extremely exciting,” said Rob Bernshteyn, CEO at Coupa. “Our customers have processed more than $120B through the Coupa solution, which has resulted in a calculated savings of more than $5 billion. We are deeply grateful to our developing customer base for the opportunity to partner with them and ensure measurable success for the organizations they serve.”
