manual keystrokes in the procure-to-pay process.
Improve & Standardize Business Process and Efficiencies: KUPPS standardizes the purchasing process,
eliminating wasteful or inefficient administrative steps.
Improve Institutional Risk Management Control: KUPPS enhances the visibility of all purchasing and creates
detailed audit histories for monitoring and approving orders.
Benefits of KUPPS
Simplified Shopping: Provides a central location for access to online shopping, facilitates attachment of
supporting documentation, and creates electronic invoices.
Enhanced Order Tracking and Reporting: Creates permanent records with trackable workflow and granular data
that can be used to report purchasing trends.
Accounting Control: Budget detail is input before an order is placed to ensure that funding is reviewed
before the commitment to pay.
