One area that deserves additional consideration is GEP’s req-to-pay environment, which for many customers, could round out the rest of the integrated suite or stand alone in its own right. In recent years, through organic development and its acquisition of Enporium, GEP gained (and integrated) P2P capabilities including greater catalog management/search capabilities (with cross-catalog search and the ability to support both punch-out and hosted catalogs, more advanced order tracking/routing, invoice reconciliation, etc.)
The sum of the parts is impressive and quite different from others such as Coupa. While not as deep as some specialists in the e-invoicing space such as Basware, the integrated P2P value proposition and where GEP is today in terms of e-invoicing could prove attractive to many organizations, most of whom probably don’t even consider GEP for P2P because they’re not fully aware of their capabilities!
