Coupa Software, a provider of cloud-based spend management software, made available the Winter ’12 Release of its Coupa Cloud Spend Optimization platform, which consolidates e-procurement and expense management capabilities into a single product for managing all business spending.

Among the enhancements included with the new release are a feature called Coupa Universal Search, which automatically searches across local and online catalogs and returns results under existing negotiated contracts. This eliminates time spent by users looking at multiple Web sites to find what they need, the company says. Coupa Universal Search automatically updates pricing of online catalogs and checks for changes. Companies can use this to audit pricing and ensure that suppliers are adhering to their negotiated pricing.
