In the Coupa Supplier Portal (CSP), you have a public profile that is visible in the Coupa Supplier Portal Directory and allows potential Coupa customers to find your profile. Having a complete profile gives your customers the information they need to determine whether they want to do business with your organization. The better the profile, the better chances you have of landing new customers!
You can also build specific profiles for each of your customers to customize your information by customer. For more information, see Create and Update Your Customer Profiles.
You can see a summary of your profile information on the homepage. The top section displays how complete your profile is (indicated by filled in badges under Profile Progress) and when the profile was last updated. You can click Improve Your Profile to open your profile.
The Profile Summary section uses tiles to summarize the number of legal entities, registered users, and connected customers that your business has, in addition to whether you have banking information, have diversity information, use static discounting (accelerate), and have a bribery policy. You can click View in the Legal Entities and Registered User tiles to open those respective sections in the Setup > Admin section, where you can manage those records.
The final section summarizes your profile information. You can click the Profile link in the Public Profile section to see a preview of what customers see when viewing your profile.
