4.5 Transition to Support and CVM


The transition from the implementing team to the Coupa Support manager and the assigned Customer Value Manager is key to ensure continued success with the customer. The handover document should be a snapshot of the customer, including and specific requirements and terminology that they have. This will be a reference for the support and CVM teams when working with the customer after go-live.

More information about these teams and additional information on Optimizing Spend Management initiatives can be found in the following links:

Customers will also find that we have a number of best practice webinars, weekly office hours, customer meet ups, and many other customer networking and customer education events, to further drive usage of Coupa!
