Highlights

GEP SMART and Llamasoft Supply Chain Guru are both enterprise-focused products that facilitate supply chain management. However, GEP SMART is a more specialized point solution, while Llamasoft is a broader supply chain suite. 

GEP SMART is a point solution for the source-to-pay procurement process that unifies procurement processes across various financial systems in the enterprise, delivering global visibility into organizations’ spend. In contrast, Llamasoft is a broader end-to-end supply chain management product with an emphasis on analytics and scenario planning. 

Features

GEP SMART and Llamasoft each offer robust advantages tailored to their target use cases. 

GEP SMART’s focus on procurement processes allows it to deliver exceptional customization and support to customers. Reviewers report robust assistance from the vendor to customize their platform deployments to meet their specific business needs. It also offers excellent customizability in its workflows, documentation, and ad hoc reporting capabilities. 

Llamasoft excels as a broader end-to-end supply chain solution. It offers functionality to support organizations’ inventory and production management, transportation, and spend processes. These capabilities offer the potential for businesses to use Llamasoft as a one-stop-shop for supply chain management, particularly if scenario and contingency planning is a priority for the enterprise. 

Limitations

There are also some limitations to GEP SMART and Llamasoft Supply Chain Guru worth considering. 

Llamasoft’s wide range of capabilities can trade off with the depth of any particular supply chain area. Additionally, the platform’s support for data manipulation and customization is more limited than some users would like. The customer support is also lacking and can be tricky of customers to navigate when they have issues that cross different supply chain processes.

On the other hand, GEP SMART does not support the full supply chain process, focusing instead purely on procurement and spend visibility. Reviewers point out that there is room for more automation in the system, particularly around data cleaning and communication between procurement processes. There are also some inefficiencies around procurement vendor management. 

Pricing 

GEP SMART is priced by quote from the vendor. 

Llamasoft Supply Chain Guru is also priced by quote from the vendor.

GEP SMART

They are starting to expand in the direct procurement area and it would be good to see continued offerings in this area. The GEP supplier portal is a great way for suppliers to maintain visibility and increase efficiencies without an additional charge to the supplier. It has a high ease of use.

GEP SMART

  • Our organization has yet to take advantage of upgrading to the latest version of GEP SMART. The version that we are on does not make use of the full screen for the different internal windows and pop-up windows. I find it cumbersome to scroll left-right and up-down on the smaller windows when there is much real-estate on the screen that could optimize the user interface.
  • GEP SMART provides technical support but our vendors seem to have some difficulty logging in to their profile and updating their information. Occasionally, the salesperson delegates to another internal member so we'll have to set up the new member with their log in.
  • The digital signature process requires that the signers of the agreement be defined before the agreement is routed for approval. Sometimes our vendors have a pool of signers that could sign the agreements and it can become a small challenge to change the signers after it has already been defined in GEP SMART.

The application is highly usable, but there are some parts of the design that could be improved such as the layout and scaling on the pages, the amount of unused white space within the interface and the consistency of the interface between modules.

GEP SMART is very efficient. With pre-designed templates loaded into the modules, it is a large time-saver to issue RFxs and complete spend analysis.
