Increase Savings and Transparency Through Tail Spend Management

This discussion will focus on how effective tail spend management can drive transparency around spend and help push low risk agreements to standard P.O.'s. 

Through her experiences at Huntington Bank, Debbie will share how they have been able to capture value of low spend / low risk supply base through a disciplined, risk based approach. Through this practice, they will realize savings by increasing transparency into what and who they are buying from allowing the opportunity to capture incremental savings.  Debbie will share how this transparency will allow Huntington:

  • Identify new areas to consolidate spend
  • Drive compliance to existing category programs
  • Take advantage of early payment discounts
