SUPPLIER MASTER DATA MANAGEMENT (MDM)

The Supplier Master Data Management (MDM) in GEP SMARTTM enables procurement organizations to make their supplier master data model more meaningful — integrating with an organization’s ERP, accounts payable, and other back-office systems to collate all supplier master data in a single location. This data is cleansed and normalized to generate a single holistic record for every supplier, available in a central supplier management workspace, the single version of the truth for all supplier records.

Using GEP’s proprietary artificial intelligence technology, Supplier MDM offers enterprises a quick time-to-value solution. As a part of GEP SMART, the supplier master data management platform is also native to GEP’s cloud integration platform. It is thus accessible around the world on mobile or desktop and is capable of integrating all supplier-related records and data from distributed and diverse systems across an enterprise.

GEP SMART’s Supplier Master Data Management solution eliminates the time, tedium and guesswork involved in manually aggregating supplier records and is a single-system solution for managing enterprise-wide supplier master data across multiple operations. GEP SMART integrates with every major ERP platform available in the market today and allows for unlimited integrations with any platform used by an enterprise to feed supplier data into Supplier MDM. As a consequence, all supplier interactions are recorded, collected, corrected, normalized, consolidated, stored and ready to share across GEP SMART, allowing procurement and supply chain professionals greater overall risk visibility and performance monitoring. GEP SMART’s supplier master data model not only increases positive compliance audit outcomes; it also gives stakeholders across an enterprise the confidence to make informed decisions.

With over 20 years of experience across strategy, software, and managed services in procurement and supply chain, GEP SMART is technology by procurement pros for procurement pros.
