The Coupa Supplier Portal (CSP) is a cloud-based platform, designed specifically for buyers and suppliers to collaborate. Suppliers can use the CSP to view their purchase orders, create and submit invoices and also manage their catalogues with specific buyers. The CSP also allows suppliers to check the status of all their transactions without having to contact an Accounts Payable department.

Based on information received through a survey, AXPO will set up supplier accounts on the Coupa Supplier Portal. Approximately three weeks before the go-live date, you will receive an email from Coupa to log in and register, after which you will be equipped to manage the ordering and invoicing processes via the platform.

While the Coupa Supplier Portal is a very intuitive and user friendly system, AXPO has developed additional resources including instructional materials and FAQs to guide suppliers through the different processes and functions. Click to access additional information and resources on Coupa.
