The IDC MarketScape cites one of Coupa’s strengths as its “single, unified platform offering a consistent, intuitive user experience in a fully integrated platform that spans the full business spend management space.” Using the industry’s most complete spend management platform, Coupa customers have unparalleled visibility and control over their business spend. Armed with a robust picture of their financial landscape, business executives can make informed decisions that drive impactful cost reductions and sustainability improvements.

Uber, like many other tech companies, operates in a fast-moving environment and is often faced with rapid periods of growth. Their procurement team operates on a broad global scope managing thousands of suppliers per year, issuing more than 120,000 purchase orders, processing more than 450,000 invoices, and more than 300,000 payments. To be successful, Uber needed a platform that would enable the company to implement scalable global processes to sustain growth, while also providing a simple, employee-friendly buying experience.

“We have a huge number of transactions, primarily due to our broad geographical presence and the very localized nature of our business. As we scale, it’s critical we’re able to absorb higher volumes while remaining headcount neutral and continue reducing our transactional costs while maintaining the necessary controls,” said Andrea Casella, Director, Global P2P at Uber. “Coupa has allowed us to increase adoption and streamline the buying process for our users, preventing rogue spend. We’ve been able to configure the platform to ensure our critical business rules are satisfied and catalog content tailored at the entity, regional, and buying group levels. All while providing great visibility into our transactions.”
