SAN MATEO, Calif., June 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Coupa Software (NASDAQ:COUP), a leader in business spend management (BSM), today announced that Telenor, one of the world’s largest telecommunications companies, has selected Coupa to transform its global procurement capability and drive efficiencies across its 25,000 employees. Global service provider KPMG will support the deployment.
“Telenor is embarking on the beginning of its digital transformation journey to among other things, digitize and simplify its internal processes,” said Jon Omund Revhaug, CEO, Telenor Procurement Company. “We are excited to have Coupa and KPMG as our partners in this journey because of their innovation and strong subject matter expertise, which promise an effective outcome.”
