INDIRECT PROCUREMENT SOFTWARE SOLUTION
SMART by GEP® is a cloud-native, unified source-to-pay procurement software that delivers comprehensive spend, sourcing and procurement functionality for indirect materials.
SMART by GEP is the first e-procurement software platform that's designed around how sourcing and procurement professionals really work, allowing you to switch fluidly between all related tasks — be it creating requisitions, hosting sourcing events, authoring new contracts, checking for supplier compliance, or managing invoices and payments. It streamlines all your indirect source-to-pay procurement processes and collates all the relevant information in one place to help you make informed spend management decisions.
All its powerful functionality is native in the unified platform — spend analytics, savings tracking, sourcing, contract management, supplier management, procure-to-pay (P2P) — which enables fluid information, process and workflow. Speed up your indirect procurement operations by automating your source-to-pay workflow processes, right from creating requisitions to sourcing, managing purchase orders, processing invoices and making payments.
Work on a touchscreen or a keyboard. No matter what you choose, SMART by GEP indirect materials procurement software is easy to set up, deploy, learn and use, with no extensive training required or even recommended.
All Functionality Native in One Unified Platform

— Tracy Joshua, Vice President, Procurement Indirect, Kellogg
"GEP has built an aesthetically pleasing, fluid-to-navigate and, most importantly, powerhouse full procurement suite that can be implemented into a large enterprise with relative ease as it is a device-agnostic, cloud solution."
