ATLANTA, GA – September 9, 2013
Liaison Technologies, a global provider of secure cloud-based integration and data management services and solutions, and Coupa Software, the leading provider of cloud-based spend optimization solutions for finance, today announced the companies will begin showcasing new programs to increase supplier adoption using the Liaison Cloud Service Brokerage (CSB). The pre-packaged solutions reduce the amount of time and expense of on-boarding buyers and suppliers.
The Liaison cloud platform enables companies to expand on-premise and cloud-based ERP applications and business processes throughout the extended enterprise. Real-time integration of information and processes is increasingly critical as organizations look to drive top line revenue and improve efficiencies. Liaison powers integration for many of the world’s leading industry networks, ERP applications and services solutions. Thousands of businesses rely daily on Liaison for enterprise class business integration.
“Liaison is thrilled to expand our position as the de facto integration partner in the Cloud Service Brokerage space through this partnership with Coupa,” said Megan Pulliam, vice president of channel for Liaison Technologies. “When enterprises are looking to streamline their costs and procurement processes, they turn to a market leader like Coupa. By establishing this partnership, Liaison expands the opportunity for these companies to optimize their spend and increase IT and business productivity faster and more effectively. Liaison’s cloud-based integration solutions automate the tedious process of synching and transforming data across an enterprise’s ecosystem.”
Coupa provides a unified suite of cloud applications for finance that help companies increase their control and generate savings that go directly to the bottom line. Coupa combines procurement, accounts payable and expense management capabilities into a single unified solution that is easy to use, cost effective and fast to configure and deploy. Liaison’s addition to the Coupa arsenal provides a rich connector enabling Coupa’s users to integrate large sets of data from other cloud or on-premise applications in order to more easily and accurately determine the best cost-savings strategies for their companies. Liaison quickly integrates suppliers’ purchase order, invoice and punchout data from Coupa with related finance or ERP systems across an enterprise.
“Our customers are moving more and more of their applications to the cloud, and Liaison’s cloud integration platform and expansive CSB are ideally suited to helping them integrate Coupa with any system needed, whether they are in the cloud or on their way,” said Roger Goulart, vice president, business development and alliances for Coupa. “The Liaison pre-packaged integrations have been supporting suppliers on Coupa for years and this will continue whether we’re talking about PO/INV integration or punchout enablement.”
