SMART by GEP integrates seamlessly with existing enterprise systems — ERPs, SRMs or sourcing tools — to create new supplier records and update transactions. Supplier master data is validated and cleansed automatically while loading.
SMART by GEP’s Supplier Master Data Management tool automatically aggregates, cleans and normalizes supplier data records. It then compares the supplier master data to SMART by GEP's Vendor Master for verification and quality assurance.
Supplier MDM processes data in batch and real-time cadences. Real-time services execute at point of entry, record creation and updates. Batch services execute against existing supplier records during migration and initial integration.
Review actions taken by the Supplier MDM tool ensure enterprises have a single, trusted source of truth for all supplier data. Users can centrally govern master data using configurable business rules, enabled processes and workflows.
SMART by GEP’s vendor master acts as a trustworthy primary source for the master data records of every supplier in the enterprise. This ensures that the supplier risk and performance modules are consistently stocked with accurate vendor data.
Supplier MDM removes, duplicates and enriches records with verified updates, ensuring accurate and up-to-date data. It also provides holistic visibility into supplier history and performance across operating units, time, and geography.
