Spend Analysis

A successful strategic sourcing program begins with comprehensive spend analysis. Without adequate and real-time spend visibility, launching any strategic sourcing initiative is like shooting in the dark. SMART by GEP® cleanses, validates, classifies and reports spend data from all your source systems. The result is accurate, actionable information, with granular, item-level visibility across the enterprise.

And that's critical to your procurement team's success in streamlining strategic sourcing waves, reducing maverick spend and realizing substantial savings.

"We work with a number of suppliers with payment terms that vary with company and business unit. SMART by GEP’s spend analysis tool has helped us normalize our payment terms across the supply base, and drive a lot of value and savings."

SMART by GEP provides comprehensive, enterprise-wide spend visibility with in-depth analytical reporting and business intelligence along with savings tracking and savings opportunity identification tools on a cloud-based, mobile-native platform that you can access anytime, anywhere from any device.

Unlike other spend analysis tools that offer little more than reporting from your ERP or AP systems, SMART by GEP automatically integrates and transforms the source spend data from all key systems across the enterprise into a single dataset. This data can then be easily classified and interrogated to support activities like spend management, supplier management and savings project management, among others, in the entire source-to-pay cycle.
