February 27, 2013

Novatus Contract Management (NCM), a leading provider of contract management solutions, announced today that the company is partnering with Coupa, the leading provider of cloud-based spend solutions, to drive productivity and deliver a new technology with a fully integrated, cloud-based spend and contract management solution to the market.

Novatus is adding its Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) capabilities to the Coupa procure-to-pay suite so that customers have the ability to edit and sign contracts on the spot.

This partnership brings together two best-in-class providers and allows them to deliver a much-needed industry integrated solution to the market that creates numerous efficiencies. For example, contract and spend information is shared between the two systems, which eliminates the need for users to key in information twice, for managing key spend and contract data.

Customers will instantly realize efficiencies including dual-entry of data, visibility across their procurement organization and the simplicity of managing an integrated, cloud-based solution.

In addition, the integration brings two best-of-breed solutions together; shared data between the systems, and where Novatus automates the entire CLM process, which includes the essential integration of contracts, contract drafting, contract negotiation and approval/renewal tools.

Coupa provides a suite of cloud applications for finance that helps companies with better visibility so they can get spend and create opportunities for cost reduction and costs savings.

In October of 2012, Novatus announced their Enterprise Integration Portal and began integrating to the Coupa Procure-to-Pay solution. The integration is now complete and is available to customers.
