Osotspa sought a single solution with best-in-class functionality and the ability to scale with future acquisitions. Any adopted technology had to multitask. It needed to integrate with multiple systems yet provide a single enterprise view. Osotspa needed detailed information regarding spend across its direct and indirect commodities to reduce expenses and increase net profit margins.
The solution also had to offer user-friendly features for both employees and buyers, and efficiency was key. Any new platform needed to provide labor-saving procurement processes that could reduce timelines and the risk of delays.
Coupa worked with Accenture to help reshape Osotspa's procurement processes and spend categorization. They addressed the organization's pain points with Coupa's comprehensive BSM platform.
Coupa's platform acts as a central hub of marketplaces, allowing immediate access to many platforms and endless integration possibilities. It features robust procurement, supplier, contracting, and spend analysis functionalities.
Just as important was the platform's flexibility. Osotspa had access to more than 10 million configuration options and additional customization.
As a cloud-based platform, Coupa offered significant advantages. Its people could now securely access the platform from anywhere — a necessity in a modern and distributed workforce. The platform accesses all the organization's data, which it then uses to analyze risk, spend, inefficiencies, and more. Osotspa can make data-driven decisions moving forward. The platform's also scalable, allowing Osotspa to continue expanding into new markets and additional areas of business spend in the future.
Through a series of onsite demonstrations, Accenture and Coupa built a close working relationship with Osotspa. "We really tried to understand their landscape and what success meant to them so we could drive a positive outcome," said Mouton.
This close working relationship and in-depth preparation propelled the partners into achieving one of their fastest deployments in the region. Contracting, analytics, and sourcing functionalities were up and running in 8 weeks, followed by the purchasing order functionality in an additional 3 months.
