Tail Spend Technology – How it Works

The Vitesse Procurement solution comprises a technology-enabled buying solution that automates over 75% of the buying process. With optional: Marketplace, and Category Management

Process Flow


The Vitesse technology platform, backed by our specialized buying desk service, will enable you to implement and maintain a comprehensive tail spend management program. By compelling all employees to place all incidental purchases through our platform, low-value spend management becomes a viable option. The ease of access to and visibility of ad hoc purchases generally has the effect of drastically reducing out-of-policy, “maverick” purchases, one of the key focus areas of any tail spend management program. Savings can be as much as 30-50% on the purchase cost of certain items, whilst improvement in process costs can be equally significant, too.
