In October 2018, Coupa Software has acquired Aquiire, the leader in real-time supplier catalog search. With 13 patents pending or issued, Aquiire extends Coupa’s capability to deliver a comprehensive business-to-business (B2B) shopping experience spanning real-time, cached, and localized catalog search. Without real-time search capability, employees often waste precious time and productivity navigating catalogs across many different supplier websites to find the products they need. With Aquiire’s patented technology part of the Coupa BSM Platform, employees can get all the information they need across suppliers in real-time with one instant search. This instant search allows for real-time competitive shopping, which can lower the price as well as improve overall employee productivity.
Coupa Software Risks and Challenges
The shift to attack the low hanging fruits in inventory could leave Coupa exposed in its core marketplace, which remains procurement, invoicing, expense management and esourcing. The challenge is for Coupa to expand its wallet share among its installed base, while continuing to innovate its offerings in areas such as Third Party Risk and Performance Management in order to cement its reputation as the vendor of choice when it comes to best-of-breed Cloud business spend management and supplier relationship applications.
Coupa Software Ecosystem, Partners, Resellers and SI
