It’s every procurement professional’s ideal to get all your enterprise’s spend firmly under management control – to entirely rid your organization of that niggling off-contract spending, and ensure that all purchasing activity is compliant with strategic plans that have so painstakingly been put in place. Ideal is here. Order Processing from SMART by GEP offers all this, and even more in the way of ease and convenience.
Collaborate with your internal customers more efficiently using automated order management processes which generate purchase requisitions prepopulated with the correct account codes. Then, direct them to the right approvers to turn them into purchase orders. Keep off-catalog spend under management by making the approved process so much simpler.
Maximize your flexibility in creating, reviewing and approving purchase orders – take complete control of your enterprise’s buying activity and monitor payments made to suppliers, thereby preventing over-ordering and improving supplier relations. SMART by GEP also lets you customize the appearance and content of your purchase orders, allowing you to take advantage of standardized formats for easy, consistent and error-free processing.
SMART by GEP is the easiest way to purchase, making maverick spending the more difficult choice. The guided buying experience makes it easy for you to find exactly what you’re looking for, without the need to type in common information every time. You can directly and seamlessly present purchase orders to suppliers via email, portal, cXML, EDI, and other channels. What’s more, the unification of the SMART by GEP platform means that every order raised is always connected to the catalog and hence to the contract and therefore, to your strategic plan. Ideal.
