In the past, when RFP and supplier submissions were all carried out in documents and spreadsheets, each event in each wave was, of course, in complete isolation. All too often, your suppliers would be answering the same questions time and again in your RFP questionnaires. And you would be creating new RFPs using the same or similar questions that have been asked before.
Often, it takes longer to sort through hundreds of spreadsheets to find those old questionnaires than to recreate them from scratch. SMART by GEP removes that problem at a stroke. Every RFX you create is there, online, in one central repository that you can access anytime, anywhere. You can build a library of best-practice templates, by category, region, or by business, and turn successful RFPs into templates for future use.
But that’s not all. Every time you create a new questionnaire, you can save it in the repository so that you, or a colleague, can pull it from the repository whenever required. What if you need a slightly different version of the same questionnaire? No problem. Pull it from the repository and just edit what you need to change for that specific event. It’s really that easy.
In short, you only need to create anything once in SMART by GEP. No need to reinvent the wheel when everything is at your fingertips.
