Coupa Inspire Dispatch: Rob Bernshteyn on Facts, Figures and Updates

05/08/2018 By


Yesterday at Inspire (see my previous live coverage from the event here, here and here) Coupa’s CEO Rob Bernshteyn offered up a number of facts, updates and figures on Coupa which I thought would be worth sharing with Spend Matters readers.

Note: these facts, figures and updates centered primarily on Coupa usage, partners and adoption at the product level. Let’s begin:

  • Based on all the permutations of modules and deployment options, Coupa calculates there are some 10 million plus possible configurations of its applications (Coupa segments its modules into five categories: procure-to-pay, source-to-contract, travel and expense, suppliers and risk and spend insights)
  • Average go-live time on Coupa was four to eight months in 2018
  • Public company Coupa customers outperform the S&P 500 (63% gain vs. 45% over the same timeframe). Note: no further information provided (i.e., data could be causal or correlated — positively, negatively or not at all. But it certainly sounds good for marketing!)
  • Typical customers now use 4+ applications
  • 1,350+ consultants are now trained on Coupa
  • 4+ million suppliers are registered now in Coupa
  • Coupa has realized a 10-fold increase (timeline not provided) in SMS notifications sent via its platforms
  • Cumulative savings for Coupa customers (methodology not shared) are $26 billion
  • On average it now takes less than a minute for suppliers to create an invoice
  • The system now supports 20 languages
  • 50% (or typically 60+) new features in each Coupa release (three per year) are based on customer input
  • CoupaLink (Coupa’s API integration platform for partners – i.e., deeper, native out-of-the-box integration) now includes 23 partners. These include Kofax, AppZen, Taxback, Avalara, Bluvault, Egencia, Nvoicepay, Vertex, Thomson Reuters, Sabre, MuleSoft, Octacom and Dell/Boomi.
  • Coupa Open Buy (which started with Amazon) is being expanded to now include similar levels of integration with Staples, Office Depot, Grainger and Thermo Fisher, among others.
