Tail Spend Management
Low-dollar purchase transactions (e.g. tail spend) rapidly add up, often representing 20 – 25% of total spend, but managing tail spend can be challenging due to its decentralized nature and high transaction volumes. AArete helps build strategies for effective tail spend management to enable improved contract negotiations, better pricing, and increased visibility into spending.
