But they mostly go under the purchasing radar, with too few purchases for active management and control. Plus tail spend management data is generally spread out across multiple internal systems including ERP & AP Programs.


It’s this lack of visibility and control that leads
to potential waste, mismanagement, and risk.

Inefficiencies Abound

  • Overspending to smaller suppliers
  • Compliance requirements jeopardized
  • Inferior product & service purchases
  • Insufficient time to support keysuppliers
  • Key supplier relationships neglected
