Global Beer Company Asahi Breweries Ropes In GEP to Unify and Transform Procurement Operations

Asahi Breweries, a Forbes Global 2000 beer company operating in eight countries in Europe and producing 42 million hectoliters of beer annually, partnered with GEP to unify and transform its procurement operations with AI-powered, cloud-based procurement platform GEP SMART, which replaced a source-to-contract platform and an on-premise procure-to-order software with limited flexibility and scalability. It transformed the procurement division into a best-in-class global organization capable of delivering greater value and savings, reducing operating costs, mitigating risks, and leveraging supplier innovations.
