Coupa Software has acquired Ann Arbor, Mich.-based AI-powered supply chain design and planning company LLamasoft, for $1.5 billion.

“We are witnessing an unprecedented shift in what businesses are demanding to effectively manage their supply chains. They need instant visibility, agile planning capabilities, and timely risk mitigation support,” said Rob Bernshteyn, chairman and CEO at Coupa. “LLamasoft’s deep supply chain expertise and sophisticated data science and modeling capabilities, combined with the roughly $2 trillion of cumulative transactional spend data we have in Coupa, will empower businesses with the intelligence needed to pivot on a dime.”

Based in Ann Arbor, Mich., LLamasoft’s technology is used by Boeing, Danone., Home Depot, and Nestle, according to Coupa.
