Tail Spend Management

Simplifying sourcing and optimizing costs

In big companies indirect expenses usually account for not more than 20% of business spending. Nevertheless they can amount up to 80% of the supply chain. Moreover, because these spendings are often fragmented and lower value deals, not only making it hard to track expenditure, but also to assign resources to the management of these costs.

This is why successful tail spend management of your office and work environment products is vital in optimizing your expenditure and ensuring that every penny counts. This can only be done by controlling costs and increasing profits. Here Lyreco can support you by lowering your hard and soft costs.

Does this ring a bell?

80% of your suppliers account for not more than 20% of your expenditure:

  • Suppliers that do not comply
  • Maximum workload capacity
  • A lot of suppliers with little spending
  • Absent detailed spending transparency
  • Fragmented vision on low value spend

Allow Lyreco to help you with your tail spend management through a completely free of charge & non-obligation audit service, with no hidden charges.
