SMART by GEP Sourcing can be used as a standalone application or as part of the SMART by GEP unified procurement platform, alongside Spend Analysis, Contract Management, category managementSupplier Management, Procure-to-Pay, and other functions.

Opportunities identified in SMART by GEP's Spend Analysis function can be transformed into strategic savings projects in SMART by GEP’s Savings function. By connecting the sourcing events to the savings projects, SMART by GEP allows you to identify where the savings will come from and track them through contract negotiation and ultimately to purchase order.

SMART by GEP does all of this because it is one unified procurement platform. The best-practice templates for projects, sourcing events, contracts, and more are based on GEP’s global procurement expertise. So, far from being just another sourcing tool, SMART by GEP is where sourcing forms a critical link in the chain — from savings opportunities to realized savings.
