Tail Spend Solution
The Tail Spend Solution helps the public sector to manage and aggregate ‘tail spend’ – low value, ad hoc purchases that are often made from lots of different suppliers. It is agreed in the public sector that tail spend is largely under-managed and overlooked. This lack of management means that many organisations don’t realise how much they’ve spent on these products until purchases appear in their end of year accounts, causing significant budget pressures. Our solution has been designed to eliminate this and help public sector buyers get the best deals possible on millions of low value products. It will also help buyers spend less time and money on invoicing, increase visibility and control of ‘hidden’ spend, and improve their spend data.
