B is for buying experience

C is for Coupa

D is for déjà vu

I’ve been enjoying reading the Coupa blog recently and especially since SAP’s intention to buy Ariba was  announced. It’s been an excuse for Coupa to really blow its trumpet about cloud and the importance of usability. Coupa’s message is very current although we have heard it before.

The original vision was right. The cost of purchasing as well as the cost of purchases could be dramatically reduced by applying the new technology. And there was a road map – a detailed vision showing how to secure the savings. The costs weren’t even that high – especially in comparison to the potential savings - but in the excitement, we lost the map and now, the vision is lost.

Tradeshift, and Taulia have announced a partnership.  Tradeshift’s enterprise customers can now integrate to SAP® with Taulia’s advanced connector. The press release yesterday announced that Taulia will launch its Dynamic Discounting application on the Tradeshift network for businesses of all sizes, adding value for both buyers and suppliers and easing the invoicing process for all. We spotted the potential of both Taulia and Tradeshift in their early days and we've followed their progress with great interest. Indeed, both have subsequently become sponsors of Purchasing Insight and it's exciting therefore to see them capitalize on the synergy that exists between them.
