Coupa: Manufacturers drive resilience with BMS platforms

Manufacturers are increasingly harnessing business spend management (BMS) platforms to gain visibility, streamline processes, and drive savings

In response to ongoing global disruptions, Coupa Software - a leader in business spend management (BSM) platforms - is experiencing an uptick in manufacturing organisations adopting its solutions to create business agility and resilience. Organisations including Unilever, P&G, Lear, Greif, and Suzano.

“While many organisations are still dealing with impacts of the pandemic, they need to focus on driving efficiency, agility, and resilience to ensure long-term success. We are committed to delivering value, and the growing interest in Coupa from the manufacturing industry is a testament to how we help businesses spend smarter, safer, and easier, all while building resilience across their organisation,” said Mark Riggs, chief customer officer at Coupa.

Modernising manufacturing

As manufacturers look to increase the modernisation of their operations, the business spend process is certainly a key area in the hope to manage the challenges of global disruption. 

“As with many industries, the manufacturing industry is dealing with numerous challenges, from skilled labour gaps to global supply chain disruptions. Coupa helps manufacturing companies reduce supply chain risk, optimise routes to market, and automate MRO spend to avoid bottlenecks,” said Coupa Software.

Coupa’s BSM platform 


Coupa’s platform allows businesses, in this case, manufacturing organisations to unify the supply chain, procurement, payments, and treasury in one place. In doing so customers can gain greater visibility and control over their spend, optimising cash flow and maximising profitability. 

“Suzano is undergoing a digital transformation process, focused on improving the purchasing processes of its requesters, suppliers, and buyers. Coupa's unified and intuitive platform is playing a key role in our journey, helping us achieve the results we envisioned, optimising and unifying our processes, providing time and cost savings, as well as greater visibility and efficiency across the entire supply chain,” said Wellington Giacomin, supply and logistics director at Suzano.
