The company also announced a new suite of solutions that use OpenAI's ChatGPT technology within Microsoft Azure’s OpenAI Service – providing an intuitive interface to query data, automate processes, and improve decision-making.

“This integration provides our clients with a conversational-based interface that is more intuitive, allowing them to derive actionable insights and improve global procurement and supply operations like never before, unlocking new levels of efficiency and productivity," said Subhash Makhija, chief executive officer of GEP. "We're using generative AI capabilities through Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service to identify operational gaps and risks in supplier contracts and brainstorm ways to optimize procurement and value chains."
