Royal London, the largest mutual life insurance, pensions, and investment firm in the UK, has announced it will use GEP procurement software.
The company has selected to use SMART by GEP®, a leading cloud-native sourcing, spend management, and procurement software.

“This partnership will enable us to deliver efficiencies throughout the sourcing life cycle through better opportunity and spend analysis, improved market insight, a more streamlined tender process, improved contractual oversight, enhanced risk management, and ultimately, a better experience for suppliers and other third parties.”
