Coupa Success Portal

Independent Oil and Gas Company


This case study is about an independent oil and gas company that focuses on the activities of acquiring, developing, exploring and producing oil and gas properties primarily in the United States.

The implementation not only entailed configuring Coupa to align with business processes, but a complete business process transformation from a paper-based system to electronic requisitioning, approving, ordering, and invoicing with Coupa.

Coupa is successfully being used for requisition, approvals, budgeting, purchase orders, receiving, invoicing, and reporting for both direct and indirect spend. To streamline their invoicing process, we have also integrated with their scanning solution to allow for scanned invoices to be fed into Coupa via an integration point.
