Supplier interaction

Deploy the power of GEP SMARTTM unified procurement platform to automate source-to-pay processes, reduce workload on your finance and accounts payable team and enable greater supplier visibility into invoice and payment status.

Cloud-native GEP SMART enables supplier self-service – suppliers use GEP SMART to respond to RFXs, participate in auctions, conduct contract negotiations, collaborate in action plans, accept and process purchase orders, submit invoices, flip purchase orders into invoices following order fulfilment and submit advanced shipping notices.

Suppliers can also make changes to their profile information or update their product catalogs for every customer using GEP SMART.

Accounts payable teams can also request electronic invoices in different file formats from suppliers connected to GEP SMART — XML file, PDF, purchase cards, etc. — depending on enterprise policies and rules.

The transparent buyer-supplier information exchange facilitated by GEP SMART improves collaboration and invoice processing efficiency and promotes win-win buyer-supplier partnerships.
