Unified Procurement Platform
No smoke. No mirrors. Intelligent, intuitive procurement software from GEP is helping procurement teams worldwide boost productivity, eliminate processing snarls, slash turnaround times and capture more savings. And like all GEP solutions, SMART by GEP® is designed by procurement professionals for procurement professionals. It’s designed to speed and support the way procurement pros really work, enabling them to switch fluidly between related tasks.
We build on this inherent flexibility with intelligent, intuitive work flows. So our tools empower users rapidly, without the burden of extensive re-training. Fresh, intuitive interfaces not only flatten the learning curve, but also enhance user productivity and satisfaction from Day One. Standardizing on best practices is a snap.
Cloud Economics, Mobile Flexibility
SMART by GEP brings together all relevant functionality in a single unified platform — sourcing, savings tracking, category management, contract management, supplier management, and procure-to-pay, among others — in its core, for smoother information, process and work flows. Unlike modular procurement software, SMART by GEP is literally seamless. Integration costs, delays, glitches? Eliminated.
What’s more, because SMART by GEP is cloud-based and platform-agnostic (it works with SAP or any other major ERP system), the risk of spiraling infrastructure and support costs is eliminated. Designed to work on desktops as well all mobile devices, including phones, tablets, and laptops, you can work on the go – anywhere, anytime, on any device.

"SMART by GEP is a true suite, encompassing spend analysis, sourcing, contract management, P2P and supplier management. Unlike other self-proclaimed procurement “suites” in the market that have one powerhouse module and only the most basic of capabilities in other modules, GEP's solution possesses extremely strong capabilities in each of these modules."
