The “tail end” of the supply chain is often populated with a large number of non-strategic suppliers with little or no relationship management in place. This unruly collection of suppliers can take necessary and expensive focus away from strategic business. Sales teams can find themselves spending more time supplier facing than customer facing.
Tail spend is often fraught with challenges that render traditional procurement strategies ineffective. In contrast the average cost per transaction with tail spend is often significantly higher to most enterprise organisations. The tail of the supply chain can often be the biggest source of incremental savings.
