The SMART by GEP Procurement Portal is the collaborative space for all stakeholders involved in the source-to-pay process.
From Guided Buying — which ensures your requestors can find the right goods and services, first time, every time — to a comprehensive document repository, SMART by GEP becomes the hub of collaboration across the enterprise.
And you can have it your way. With the power to tailor the Guided Buying process, you can ensure the business maximizes use of your preferred purchasing channels, not only by buying through SMART by GEP but even through other software systems.
GEP is here to help. We can assist in configuring your procurement portal to exactly how you need it. Or you can take charge of tailoring the content and the processes yourself with GEP at your shoulder to support you.
A tailored help and support system to navigate relevant buying channels and search content across SMART by GEP, with questionnaires that intuitively direct users to the right place, a multi-channel access point with quick links to all purchasing portals, and category cards to provide in-depth category insights.
An extensive content repository of policy documents, procedures, forms and FAQs to guide users and reduce free-text requisitions. Enables catalog browsing with the right supplier at the right price, drives price and value compliance and optimizes inventory usage while maximizing the use of preferred supplier bases.
Enabling users to meet and interact with their teams, the Collaboration Hub serves as a connection to category managers, support colleagues, operations staff and other stakeholders. It allows users to view preferred suppliers and partners by category or region, and collaborate with suppliers to manage catalog content.
A highly flexible customization feature that enables users to personalize their procurement portal with documents and processes important to their area of work. Customers can directly manage all the content displayed on their portal, filtering material related to specific categories, sub-functions or resources.
"SMART by GEP was built in a way that facilitates seamless interaction among requisitions, purchasing, and payables."

Why SMART by GEP
SMART by GEP boosts control, compliance and process efficiency, and slashes paperwork, processing errors and costs – all with minimal learning curve disruption. So from order to invoice, your procurement operations will achieve greater efficiencies, gain valuable insights into spending patterns, and save more time and money.

SMART by GEP is a unified procurement platform, so the P2P tools are not some standalone system divorced from the rest of the procurement chain.

The built-in business intelligence gives you the power to oversee the entire source-to-pay cycle, maximizing your realized savings.
