GEP was named the Best P2P (procure-to-pay) Technology Solutions Provider at the recently held 12th Annual World Procurement Awards in London. SMART by GEP — the industry’s only cloud-native, unified source-to-pay platform — was recognized for delivering comprehensive P2P process improvements and exceptional results to global enterprise procurement organizations. GEP also earned nominations in two other key categories at the event — Best New Procurement Technology and Best New Procurement Consultancy Project.
Subhash Makhija, chief executive officer and co-founder of GEP, said, “The award itself marks the passion of GEP people to deliver the best products to our customers. It is further recognition of the talent, hard work and dedication of our product development teams, designers, developers and engineers — some of the brightest and best innovators in the entire field. This award belongs to them as much as anyone.” Al Girardi, vice president of marketing and analyst relations at GEP, remarked that the SMART by GEP platform topped the entries of “several longtime category incumbents and a software behemoth or two.”
GEP is frequently honored as an innovator and leading provider of source-to-pay procurement software by top industry and technology analysts, such as Forrester, Procurement Leaders, Gartner, IDC, Spend Matters, Ardent Partners and PayStream. It was named the Best Supplier at the EPIC Procurement Excellence Awards.
GEP also earns top honors in consulting and managed services from some of the industry’s leading research firms, professional associations and journals, including Everest Group on its PEAK Matrices of Procurement Services Providers and Supply Chain Services Providers; NelsonHall on its NEAT Matrix of Global Procurement BPO Service Providers; HfS in its Blueprint Report on Procurement as a Service; IDC in its MarketScape report on Procurement as a Service; and ALM Intelligence in its Vanguard Reports on both Procurement Consulting and Supply Chain Consulting.
