Savings-as-a-Service Leader brings together Europe’s Top Spend Management Experts to learn, collaborate, and celebrate

SAN MATEO, Calif.--()--Coupa Software, the leader in cloud-based spend management, will host its second-annual European customer conference for the first time in Paris, France on October 22nd at the Westin Paris Vendome. Coupa Inspire ’15 in Paris will bring together more than 500 finance professionals, procurement leaders and industry analysts to exchange inspiration and best practices on how to manage their spend and save money with Coupa.

“We are excited to host our European customers in Paris, one of the key business hubs in one of our fastest-growing regions,” said Rob Bernshteyn, CEO of Coupa. “In the past year, we’ve aggressively expanded our European presence to support our rapidly growing European customer base. We opened a new customer success hub in Dublin to build upon our existing regional offices in Paris and Frankfurt, we expanded our partner ecosystem to more completely meet our customers’ needs, and committed to continuing to deliver unrivaled success for our customers in the region. We’re eager to engage with our customers, partners, and employees at this exciting annual event in Europe.”

Coupa customers such as Technicolor and NEC EMEA will have the opportunity to share their experiences at Inspire and will learn how to continue streamlining their spend management programs.

Chief Procurement Officer Mike Van Gerven of United Kingdom’s NEC EMEA mentioned that “Coupa has given us unprecedented visibility into how we’re spending our money. Coupa gives us the ability to identify not just opportunities for savings, but also opportunities to strengthen relationships with our suppliers and drive real, measurable business impact.”

“Coupa’s platform has rapidly become a key leverage for the development of our procurement strategy”, said Cédric Le Saveant, director of sourcing performance & operations at Technicolor in France. “Coupa not only helped us to develop new sourcing services but has also driven the digital transformation of our organization and boosted new business integration of new entities within the group.”

Featured speakers and sponsors at Coupa Inspire Paris will include industry leaders such as KPMG, Accenture, IBM, Xoomworks, Excelerated Sources, and Wipro. Event attendees will have the opportunity to learn from the best in the industry about spend management best practices and how Coupa’s singular focus on customer success translates into billions in savings.

“Coupa aligns us with one of the industry’s leading Source-to-Pay solutions and it helps us differentiate our offerings in the global marketplace,” said Paul Jones, procurement and supply chain capability lead for KPMG in the United Kingdom. “As a leading implementation partner of procurement transformation enabled by technology, we at KPMG draw upon extensive industry knowledge, global finance and compliance heritage and deep procurement and finance shared services experience to help member firm clients develop a sustainable competitive advantage in the procurement space. Coupa enables organizations to realize the associated efficiency and effectiveness benefits of a user-friendly procurement application that encourages adoption (internal customer and supplier), increases management oversight and enables greater visibility into corporate spending.”
