Drive Next-Level Efficiency and Performance
As the pioneering psychiatrist Carl Jung said, “You are what you do, not what you say you’ll do.” In other words, the best plans and strategies can fail without proper execution. As a procurement organization, your goals and desired outcomes are highly dependent on the operations and processes that are deployed and carried through in pursuit of those objectives.
GEP helps you revitalize all your source-to-pay processes to drive operational excellence throughout your transformation journey. Our procurement transformation programs deliver impressive returns on investment — significant increases in organizational efficiency and effectiveness, jumps in productivity, stronger and more strategic relationships with suppliers, and of course substantial savings.
GEP helps clients advance their source-to-pay operations and drive higher savings — typically in the range of 30 to 40 percent. From end-to-end source-to-pay optimization to focused optimization programs, including spend analysis, sourcing execution, contract management, SRM, tail-spend management, order and invoice management, spot buying, master data management, and catalog management — GEP helps you make significant gains in operational performance and efficiency.
GEP’s procurement transformation programs are designed to keep enterprise procurement teams firing on all cylinders, enabling them to meet targets, expand reach and keep pace with rising expectations. Our focus on continuous process improvement — based on Six Sigma and Lean concepts — helps clients achieve measurable improvement and drive significant bottom-line results from their procurement operations.
Procurement transformation projects entail significant changes in processes and technology, calling for deployment of strong change management tools and methodologies. GEP works with you — through tailored communication strategies and change workshops — on training and marketing the organization-wide change to help you ascend the procurement maturity curve quickly and efficiently.
