    • There are large number of suppliers in the tail hence effectively managing them would be difficult

    • With large number of low value transactions, procurement professionals will be expensive and procurement operations would be inefficient

    Reasons for Tail Spend Problem

    • When there are more number of suppliers than employees
    • Around 67% suppliers supply only 5% of spend
    • Whenever more than 30% of the orders are not negotiated by the procurement team
    • Less than half of the purchases are automated
    • Less than half of the transactions are done with preferred suppliers
    • Addition of 10% new suppliers every quarter
