• GEP named a leader in four key segments of NelsonHall’s NEAT Vendor Evaluation for Procurement BPO, including Overall Procurement BPO, Procurement Transformation and Strategic Sourcing


London – June 16, 2015 – GEP, a leading provider of procurement services and procurement technology to Fortune 500 and Global 2000 enterprises worldwide, announced today it has been named to the leadership quadrant in four key market segments of London-based NelsonHall’s NEAT Vendor Evaluation for Procurement BPO.

GEP was recently named Best Supplier at the EPIC Procurement Excellence Awards. Less than a month ago, GEP was again named to the Supply and Demand Chain Executive 100.

“NelsonHall is a great source of objective, authoritative analysis on the global business services market,” said Al Girardi, Global Vice President of Marketing & Analyst Relations at GEP. “We’re delighted to be named leaders in four separate NEAT matrices and especially to achieve such distinction in the areas that really matter most to our clients – procurement transformation, strategic sourcing and overall global leadership in procurement BPO.”

NelsonHall’s NEAT (NelsonHall Evaluation & Assessment Tool) evaluation assessed GEP’s capabilities on a two-axis model: assessing providers on their “ability to deliver immediate benefit” and their “ability to meet future requirements.” According to NelsonHall, leaders are providers that exhibit a high ability relative to their peers to deliver both immediate and future benefits.
