An Analysis of Coupa’s Latest Capabilities and Roadmap Items: eProcurement and an Enhanced Supplier Network [PRO]
Last week at Coupa Inspire, Raja Hammoud, VP Product Marketing & Management, shared the latest on Coupa’s product releases and roadmap. In the coming weeks, Spend Matters will report on Coupa’s latest high-level product direction and planned enhancements in a series of research briefs. We will also provide cursory comparative analysis, pending further demonstrations and under-the-cover looks at Coupa’s latest product releases. Today we will start with Coupa’s enhancements in eProcurement and the Coupa supplier experience / supplier network. We think that Coupa is already ahead of ERP competitors in the generalized shopping and item-comparison experience, yet will face increased competition from those that “re-skin” ERP shopping capabilities such as IBX/Capgemini, Hubwoo, and others.
