Tail Management

Optimise your cost and simplify your procurement

Indirect spend in large organisations typically accounts for only 20% of business expenditure. Yet it can represent up to 80% of the supply chain. However, this spend is often low value and fragmented transactions, making it difficult not only to track spend but to allocate resource to managing these costs.

This is why effective tail management is essential to making this spend go further through cost control and improving bottom-line profits. Lyreco can help by reducing your hard and soft costs.

back to work suppliers consolidation

Does this sound familiar?

80% of your suppliers account only for 20% of your spend:

  • Too many suppliers with small spend
  • Non-compliant suppliers
  • Workload capacity at maximum
  • Lack detailed expenditure visibility
  • Fragmented approach to small value spend

Allow Lyreco to help you with your tail management through our audit services.


The benefits of managing tail-end spend

visibility of your spending


Through effective tail-end management

You will take control of your spend visibility, receiving one report in one format rather than dealing with information from multiple sources. This allows you to enrich your supplier data and guide your tail-spend in line with your objectives.
