Why GEP SMART
More than ever before, supplier management needs to be an active and collaborative process. Multiple stakeholders from within your business and the suppliers themselves — all have a vested interest in keeping the relationship moving toward your strategic goals. Simply relying on vendor master data in your ERP system is no longer good enough when it comes to identifying your suppliers and evaluating their performance.
GEP SMART's unified procurement platform has your supplier base underpinning the entire source-to-pay process. Whether you are setting up a savings project, running a sourcing event, negotiating a contract, or browsing catalogs; whenever you see a reference to your suppliers, you are looking at the same information. You can quickly see your relationship with suppliers across all parts of the procurement process and see how they have been performing. It’s this granular and comprehensive visibility that makes GEP SMART an indispensable tool for supplier management.
