OLX Group embarks on a global procurement transformation journey with Coupa and Xoomworks

by | September 22, 2021

One of the world’s fastest-growing networks of trading platforms, OLX has selected Xoomworks Procurement to widen the remit of Coupa across finance and the whole organisation.

The group, operating in 30+ countries, helps people buy and sell cars, find housing, get jobs, buy and sell household goods, and more. OLX was looking for a longer-term relationship with a partner with roots in the European time zone that could help them both scale and optimise the benefits of Coupa as a group-wide spend management solution.

Xoomworks’ successful delivery of a multilingual service desk facility and release management programme made it the logical choice as OLX’s implementation partner.

Analysis was provided by the XoomTune utility, identifying opportunities for savings, improved efficiency and cost control. Xoomworks planned and executed the rollout of the global end-to-end procure-to-pay solution, incorporating sourcing policies defined by OLX, to enable better tracking and governance across the spend lifecycle.

With the Coupa solution, delivered by Xoomworks, OLX now has a single purchasing platform, integrated with its ERP, which is delivering on its e-procurement business case by increasing efficiency, improving governance and enabling continuous process improvement.

“The rollout was made more challenging from the cultural diversity of countries and demographics that we operate in. With Coupa, Xoomworks has delivered a unified and standardised way for procurement across the global organisation.”
