Helping Education Make the Grade

For private and public educational institutions, getting faculty and staff what they need across different locations and departments can be difficult—and keeping track of what they spend can be even harder. Outdated education procurement systems and processes make getting supplies slow and managing spend cumbersome.

Coupa makes it easy for educational institutions to unify spend management and achieve total visibility—within departments and across the organization as a whole. Get everyone on board with an easy-to-use, end-to-end system that lets you increase efficiency, automate approvals, and streamline workflows. Give administrators, executives, and managers the ability to see how and where money is being spent so they can manage budgets better, and plan ahead.
