March 27, 2012

Recognized for its Market Leadership in E-procurement, SaaS Provider Transforming How Companies Reduce Costs and Increase Profits

SAN MATEO, Calif., Mar 27, 2012 -- Coupa Software, the leader in cloud spend optimization software, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDemand Top 100 winners for a second consecutive year. Coupa’s inclusion in the OnDemand 100 signifies leadership among its peers and recognizes the company’s game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Coupa was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.

“We are proud to be included on the list of companies disrupting and improving their markets,” said Rob Bernshteyn, CEO of Coupa. “This recognition illustrates the value that our spend optimization software provides. We help companies shift to a culture of responsible spending, dramatically improving their bottom line.”

Coupa’s cloud-based purchasing and procurement software manages indirect purchases and expenses in realtime. The platform provides executive dashboards, alerts, and real-time benchmarking in a convenient and familiar online shopping experience. Employees are delighted to use the intuitive software, which vastly reduces maverick spending and increases spend under management.

The OnDemand 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2012 list.

“Digital information has expanded exponentially during the past year. As the emergence of robust, innovative apps needed to manage this information continues, a complex world of interconnected business intelligence and ideas is being created at a new macro level,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This year’s OnDemand 100 winners are continuing to use disruptive technology and ideas to merge valuable legacy data and systems with new, vital streams of information. The results are being deployed in the cloud by any number of SaaS products and services, changing the way all businesses coexist. The OnDemand 100 continues to represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in the private company marketplace.”

Coupa and the OnDemand Top 100 companies will be honored at the AlwaysOn OnDemand event on April 4, 2012, at Hewlett-Packard’s Executive Briefing Center in Cupertino, California. This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on how the internet is disrupting how companies -- from small businesses to large enterprises -- create, store, distribute, analyze and take advantage of their mission-critical data.
