Scene40_iPad.pngGEP, global provider of procurement services and procurement software to Fortune 500 and Global 2000 enterprises worldwide has launched SMART by GEP, a unified sourcing and procurement platform native to cloud, mobile and touch technologies.

SMART by GEP enables users to work without compromise – anywhere, anytime and on any device – tablet, mobile phone, laptop or PC. 

Called “artfully designed and visually appealing”, SMART by GEP provides robust, comprehensive sourcing and procurement functionality--including spend analysis, sourcing, contract management, supplier management and purchasing--in one unified e-procurement solution.

According to the company, SMART by GETP is easy-to-use and easy-to-deploy, and “supports the fluid multi-tasking and flexible workflows required by real-world procurement professionals on the go." 

“GEP is committed to driving innovation and value in sourcing and procurement to help our customers achieve their own goals,” says Subhash Makhija, CEO of GEP. “This means, continually re-thinking the way things are – to reach for a better way.

“Our customers are increasingly mobile,” Makhija notes. “They’ve integrated touch and cloud technology into their work styles and preferences. And they don’t work in ‘modules,’ which are artificial constructs that reflect the priorities of vendors, not users.

“We put sourcing and procurement professionals at the center of our business and we’ve designed SMART by GEP to reflect their priorities and preferences,” he explains. “SMART by GEP is not only intuitive and easy to use, it’s also extremely flexible. It can be configured to very specific needs of any individual, team or organization.”

Device-agnostic and able integrate with all major back-end systems, SMART by GEP leverages the knowledge base of the procurement services and software company in field-tested, ready-to-use work and process flows, tools, templates, checklists and scorecards (inclusive of patent-pending innovations such as category workbenches, five-way matching and three-click RFPs.)
