Coupa Success Portal

Fortune 500 Global Freight and Logistics Services Company

Overview

This Fortune 500 freight and logistics services company operates in over 400 locations over 22 countries across North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Their legacy procurement system was outdated and no longer met company goals in managing spend. Coupa was selected to replace the system with a projected 450M+ going through the platform on an annual basis.

The first phase of rollout included all of the US locations. The second phase was expansion into global locations including foreign currency and language support. Coupa is providing customer improved catalog search, robust reporting, and e-invoicing capabilities. Speed of purchasing, significant reduction of paper invoices and speed of payment all contribute to savings and values. The main groups running spend through Coupa are Corporate Services, IT, Fleet and and Facilities.

Efficiency gains on the invoice entry and reconciliation against PO were the key differentiator. All of the customer's suppliers are either connected through Coupa Supplier Network where they flip PO to invoices into the customer's environment or cXML where suppliers are electronically sending invoices. Invoice automation allows fast reconciliation and on time payments to suppliers.
