PunchOut2Go On the Road: #CoupaInspire 2015

In June, the PunchOut2Go team traveled to the Silicon Valley, San Francisco, California to sponsor and attend Coupa Inspire 2015! This three-day event, focused on Coupa’s Savings-as-a-Service, was full of networking, use case examples, lessons learned, lessons to learn and thought-provoking ideas leaving the captive audience, Inspired!

As to be expected, PunchOut2Go and attendees heard from insightful and inspirational speakers throughout the event. To kick things off, Coupa CEO, Rob Bernshteyn, shared the story of Coupa’s, ‘savings as a service’ platform. Bernshteyn and his team reinvented Coupa’s core values of ensuring customer success, focusing on results, and striving for excellence. To support their core values, Bernshteyn and his team developed a two-part hypothesis for a customer-friendly and cost-effective Coupa by emphasizing the importance of user experience and pre-integration.

By focusing on enhancing their customers' user experience and implementing a more intuitive process, Coupa saves customers precious time and money. Additionally, they quantified their methods by controlling spend, reducing costs, and collecting data about these respective practices. Usability is central to Coupa's current business model. They actively listen to user comments and adjust their product accordingly, as PunchOut2Go does as well. Coupa’s refined approach now enables business for over 1.5 million suppliers around the world through cloud technology. With the combination of the aforementioned hypothesis and their focus on cost reduction, Coupa has achieved a great amount of success, has offices across three continents, and has engaged with millions of global customers. To date, they have saved companies over $5B with their cloud spend management technology.

"Bernshteyn's vision for Coupa, it's growth with quantifiable results, is an inspiration in itself, constantly delivering to save customers money," says PunchOut2Go CEO, Brady Behrman. "The entire Coupa team shares into this vision and through our experiences, we see first-hand, the vision being fulfilled. At Inspire, we met with many Coupa customers that additionally share the vision, looking into additional ways to save, cut costs and better manage their spend."

2015 Inspirational Speaker, Navi Radjou, Focused on Creative Problem Solving in the face of extreme limits. Captivating and Motivating the audience with his background of pioneering entrepreneurs in emerging markets who figured out how to get spectacular value from limited resources, the practice has now caught on globally.
