In the Coupa Supplier Portal (CSP), you have a public profile that is visible in the Coupa Supplier Portal Directory and allows potential customers to find your profile. Having a complete profile gives your customers the information they need to determine whether they want to do business with your organization. The better the profile, the better chances you have of landing new customers!
