Manage Tail Spend and Improve Visibility to Costs

Reclaim Your Spending Power

Reducing procurement costs is a cornerstone in any successful business model. The emphasis for you is often placed on securing the best price for the products most frequently used by your company. However, this focus can distract from tail spend management – the often hidden costs of ordering specialized or miscellaneous products from non-core suppliers.

Although you don’t dictate the specific supply needs of the company, you can control the means of procuring these items. Minimizing the number of suppliers is a central component to a cost-reducing procurement strategy, as it saves not only money but also time, as well as removing the complexity of multiple purchase orders and searching competing websites.

Yet which single supplier should you trust? Consider Avantor Services, a proven leader in innovative, reliable, and affordable worldwide supply, procurement, and inventory management services. We strive to be more than just a supplier for you, but a resource for solutions and expertise as well. With our proven inventory management and procurement software, and VWR MarketSource solution, we can help identify often overlooked cost factors to save you more money.
