World Vision Provides Faster Aid to People in Need with Coupa
World Vision has been providing relief after natural disasters and other states of emergency for nearly 70 years. From the beginning of COVID-19, World Vision's goal was to limit the spread of the virus, strengthen health systems and workers, and support the most vulnerable communities, especially children. As COVID-19 cases grew, the criticality of getting resources to the places most in need became even more important for World Vision, and Coupa's Business Spend Management (BSM) platform enabled a more nimble response.
"The pace and nature of COVID-19 meant our teams around the world had to adapt quickly to a rapidly changing crisis," said
One year before the onset of COVID-19, in order to gain visibility into its spend and be better positioned to respond quickly and effectively to the next crisis:
- World Vision restructured its organization around a centralized procurement process using the Coupa BSM Platform.
- Thus enabling the organization to rapidly source supplies in bulk and distribute them among its warehouses globally.
- In addition, offering visibility into how much personal protective equipment (PPE) and other critical supplies were on hand and where, so items could be delivered swiftly to the people most in need.
"We are grateful for the work World Vision is doing and humbled to be able to support its relief efforts," said
