Project background

The client wanted to improve their spend visibility to enhance incremental savings by improving the effectiveness of their supplier onboarding process. The time designated to achieve this business objective was six months.

  • Objective 1: The company wanted to determine the key reasons for tail spend and address them.
  • Objective 2: They were also looking forward to reducing excess spend by consolidating the number of suppliers and strengthening relationships with them.

“Despite accounting for 20% of non-core transactions that lie outside the main strategic purchasing strategies, tail spend is usually left unmanaged due to the high volume of suppliers and inadequate resources. This majorly hampers the procurement efficiency of businesses,” says a procurement expert from SpendEdge.

  • Implement a tail spend management framework to identify key suppliers and reduce the number of tail-end suppliers.
