Our Procurement Teams are purchasing and tail spend management specialists. They work with you as an extension of your procurement team.

The model

Pain points come from having to spend time, money and resource procuring and managing hundreds of individual low value suppliers. The 80:20 way allocates resources in the most effective manner, so a specialist company can focus on low value spend while a client focuses on higher value strategic procurement activities.

Developed from the Pareto Principle, the 80:20 model introduced a concept allowing clients to manage 100% of spend by aligning resources to strategic commodities and developing a partnership with 80:20 as an outsourced provider.

Managing tail spend

Tail spend can account for up to 20% of a company’s procurement activity that usually goes unmanaged due to the large number of low-value ad-hoc transactions spread across many suppliers.

This relatively small part of the purchasing spend expenditure has a huge impact on a purchasing team volume. Many of the products are typically purchased from non-contracted suppliers and consist of varying and often unnegotiated terms. Due to the item value, they result in a large volume of transactions and vendors per year, which are either too small to go through the strategic spend or are not part of an existing framework of contract catalogues. This means that it is often difficult for companies to get insight into these low-value, low-risk expenditures.

By partnering with 80:20, our clients benefit from cost savings up to 32% across their tail spend and have more time to focus on high-value strategic purchases.
