GEP’s headquarters, just outside of New York City in Clark, NJ, anchors operations in the United States and Canada.
And with locations in São Paulo and Mexico City, GEP's operations in Latin America are expanding rapidly. To better serve our burgeoning roster of clients in the region, we've recruited an extraordinary team of regional procurement specialists.
GEP's procurement experts can rapidly hit the ground running in any local or regional business center, working on-site in the local language. And using GEP's innovative GRID™ delivery model, our local and regional teams are able to obtain seamless support from global operations centers all over the world.
GEP provides a complete portfolio of procurement services and software to clients in Latin America, including spend analysis, strategic sourcing and sourcing support, category and tail-spend management, procurement outsourcing and one of the industry's leading eProcurement platforms – SMART by GEP®, with support for nine European languages, including Spanish and Portuguese.
Our ability to successfully navigate the specific conditions and complexities of local and regional Latin America markets is one important reason why GEP can deliver significant savings to clients.
And while GEP people all over the world are diverse, we're all united by a passionate dedication to helping clients meet their strategic, operational and financial objectives.
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.
