Coupa is the leading cloud platform for Business Spend Management (BSM) that helps state, local and Federal government agencies gain visibility and control over all spend to increase operating efficiency, reduce risk, and ensure regulatory compliance.
It helps agencies capture all spend on one platform to better manage resources across regions, driving improved use of budgets and control. This includes helping to categorize spend , managing multiple tiers of budgets based on agency hierarchy; dynamic approvals based on risk and location; and tracking spend with small, minority, and disadvantaged businesses. By way of illustration, the 460,000 employee-strong United States Postal Service (USPS) uses Coupa to consolidate its spend across all 50 states. With a large, distributed, and mobile workforce, the USPS addressed the need for managing their spend through increased user adoption and complete visibility and real-time analytics with Coupa.
Coupa’s easy-to-use platform empowers government agencies to digitize procurement processes, freeing up resources to better support each agency’s mission. For example, South Metro Fire in Colorado uses Coupa’s web and mobile apps to order goods and file per-diems, so they can spend more time supporting the local community.
