Knowing you can save on your spend in a particular category is one thing. How you go about realizing those savings and having them validated by your finance team is something else altogether.
GEP SMARTTM gives you a complete savings pipeline and tracking tool kit to not only identify potential savings and plan your strategic sourcing projects, but also to execute your savings plans, monitoring activity and compliance throughout their life cycle.

GEP SMART is a collaborative platform that lets you create and manage your strategic savings plans.
