Solutions Highlights

Introduction

Latin America, like other regions, has its own specific procurement challenges. Decision-making is often decentralised and spending patterns are relatively fragmented. Companies confront multiple currencies, inflation, supplier duplication and logistic issues, among others. But time and time again, GEP has overcome these challenges to deliver real results to the bottom line.

How? Among leading global firms, GEP is the only company to provide a full range of procurement services and software, focused exclusively on procurement. Global at our core, we integrated best-practice methodologies learned in complex engagement across Latin America and the world, with powerful cloud-based software tools. Moreover, we provide full language support in nine European languages, including Spanish and Portuguese.
