Enhancing the purchasing experience for buyers is one of the top priorities for most procurement organizations. With all the effort that goes into securing the right deal for each category, and with each supplier, you need a purchase order management system that can manage the purchasing part of the process — efficiently and effectively.
From creating requisitions and orders, and then processing them through to paid invoices, your procurement software must be robust, easy to use and flexible. Because the end users aren’t procurement professionals like you, with a good understanding of the importance of purchasing compliance and good supplier relations. At the point of purchase, the users are your colleagues across the business, who need an easy-to-use, intuitive purchasing system to help them buy the goods and services they want, without any complex protocols or processes to follow.
GEP SMARTTM is precisely that. With intuitive catalogs (including punch-outs), comprehensive search capabilities, shopping carts, and all the convenient consumer shopping features we are all familiar with, GEP SMART facilitates rapid requisition creation. Once created, requisitions are approved into purchase orders through business-specific workflows. Purchase orders are then sent to suppliers, all from within GEP SMART. At all times, buyers can easily track purchase orders to see where they are in the process.
