Tail end spend – also called long tail, or low value spend – is the 20% of spend that typically goes unmanaged within an organisation. This 20% tends to be low value transactions, spread across multiple spend categories, and with many suppliers. In fact, tail end often accounts for 80% of all an organisation’s suppliers.
By using our tried and tested procurement processes across all categories of low value spend, we're able to generate significant savings quickly, throughout the supply chain. We currently deliver savings of around 8% on the value of tail spend, on top of the efficiencies we deliver from processing improvements and economies of scale.
We can also help you build a business case for change, using our vast benchmarking datasets to show how much value we can deliver.
