How did MongoDB approach the software selection process?
They recognized that the ineffective tools were not being utilized for daily tasks. They collated requisites from colleagues and stakeholders and weighed them against the available software choices. Their investigation revealed that their fundamental requirements were imperative, not merely desirable. Ultimately, they fought with facts, not feelings, leading them to choose the software that aligned with their essential needs. To uncover MongoDB's key prerequisites, tune into the webinar.
What prompted MongoDB's shift from their prior point solutions?
They sought a solution that would actually be used by stakeholders, and one that was capable of expanding and evolving alongside MongoDB's growth. They initiated their journey with Coupa's foundational platform, progressively incorporating attributes such as security, legal compliance, and reporting as their operations expanded. The foundational platform served as an entry point, enabling rapid setup and familiarization before the integration of additional features. This approach significantly minimized the need for extensive training. For an insight into how their investment in Coupa influenced their return on investment, watch the webinar.
How did Coupa contribute to broader aspects of MongoDB's operations?
The analytical and reporting capabilities enabled the creation of custom dashboards for their high-volume personnel. For instance, the marketing team could track trends in both significant and minor events. Executive assistants gained insights into invoice utilization for upcoming offsite events. Secure blocks were implemented to restrict teams' access to only view relevant purchase orders and invoices to their department. Coupa reports real-time data, eliminating the need for manual tracking between budgets and actual spending.
