What is Coupa – ACS Marketplace?

The American Cancer Society (ACS) has selected Coupa (www.coupa.com) as the technology platform to streamline the procure-to-pay processes and enable electronic transactions. Internally we have branded the system the ACS Marketplace. Through it, we will send you Purchase Orders and Change Orders and you will use it to accept these Purchase Orders, submit Invoices, Adjustments and/or Credit Memos.


By working with ACS Marketplace electronically, both ACS and our valued suppliers increase order-taking efficiency, reduce mistakes, increase payment efficiency, and our suppliers maintain a better presence with ACS.
