  Travel Booking Solution

SAN MATEO, Calif. -- June 25, 2013

Coupa Software, a leading provider of cloud-based spend optimization solutions
for finance, today announced they have partnered with Orbitz for Business, the
corporate travel brand of Orbitz Worldwide (NYSE: OWW), to offer a seamless
integration between their services and provide customers with a premier travel
booking and expense management solution. Coupa’s expense management software
will be integrated into the Orbitz for Business booking tool later this year.

When customers use Orbitz for Business to book travel arrangements on a
desktop, tablet or mobile device, the information will be automatically
populated in Coupa Expenses. An expense report is automatically completed,
which helps employees cut expense reporting time, increase accuracy, and helps
controllers identify fraud.

“This partnership between Coupa and Orbitz for Business is a natural fit –
both are innovative technology companies that are focused on developing
intuitive products our customers want to use,” said Anne Marie Razza,vice
president of product strategy and development at Orbitz for Business. “Orbitz
for Business travelers already have access to comprehensive supplier inventory
and an easy-to-use booking tool – and our upcoming integration with Coupa’s
software will seamlessly combine two robust, user-friendly products that
further improve the traveler experience and deliver additional cost savings.”

Key benefits of the partnership and integration include:

  *Travel & Expense Harmony

       *Coupa users will benefit from existing Orbitz for Business benefits
         such as a “consumerized” online booking interface; full suite of
         mobile tools; specially negotiated rates; and 24/7 online or offline
         customer care
       *Partnering with Coupa for expense management will encourage seamless
         integration of travel and expense and will drive cost savings before
         the trip – not after

  *Reduced Travel Costs

       *Using Coupa Sourcing, Orbitz for Business customers will soon get
         full visibility across all travel expenditures and negotiate
         preferred pricing with fewer travel vendors

  *Ease of Use Means Faster Cycle Times

       *Eliminates the need to fill out expense reports, so employees will
         submit them sooner, reducing the cycle time

  *Increased Accuracy

       *Orbitz for Business travel bookings are automatically loaded into
         Coupa Expenses, which eliminates discrepancies in the data and
         increases accuracy

  *Reduced Fraud:

       *Controllers have visibility into booking and expense costs, and can
         easily identify discrepancies in spending. Coupa eliminates
         fraudulent expense reports by flagging out of policy discrepancies so
         companies can manage by exception

“As a leader in cloud spend optimization, we knew a partnership with a travel
industry pioneer like Orbitz for Business would be a great benefit,” said Tony
Darugar, General Manager, Expenses, Coupa. “This is yet another example of how
our convenient expense management platform helps employees get the information
that they need without getting bogged down by a complex, time-consuming
process.”

The Coupa app is also available on iOS and Android devices. Users can take a
photo of their business receipts, which then syncs with the Coupa platform,
and is routed through all necessary approval processes.
