Comprehensive Workflows

Every business is different, not least when it comes to how purchases are approved and signed off. In some organizations, there is a strict hierarchy for purchasing approvals. For example, requisitions are signed off by the line manager before becoming orders, these orders, in turn, must be signed off by category buyers and finance managers before being approved. In other organizations, some employees have preapproved rights to purchase certain categories up to certain limits. And, of course, every other possible permutation exists somewhere.

SMART by GEP can handle all of it. With approvals based on value, category, geography and business unit; workflows can be hierarchical, parallel or pool; apply to requisitions, orders, or both; and vary right across your enterprise to suit local circumstances or to enforce company policy.
 
SMART by GEP works the way you work, the way you want your business to work. That makes a difference, doesn’t it?
