Increased demand from internal customers is one very tangible indicator of procurement’s growing importance to the enterprise. On the other hand, this increased demand – if not resourced adequately – can overwhelm already lean internal teams, actually eroding their overall impact.
Support services from GEP are designed to help keep enterprise procurement teams firing on all cylinders, enabling your group to meet its targets, expand its reach and keep pace with rising expectations.
That’s why enterprise procurement teams at Fortune 500 and Global 2000 companies across, Europe, Asia and the Americas ask GEP to support them across a wide range of procurement activities.
