Less is more when it comes to your supply chain.

Tail management is the strategy of consolidating suppliers who account for a small amount of your procurement spend but who are large in number (frequently around 80%) and disproportionately time-consuming to manage. This non-critical or ‘tail’ spend often goes overlooked. HousingTeam provides a professional tail management service that will give you cost and process benefits across your business.

Typically suited for housing associations looking to rationalise their supply base in a more efficient way, HousingTeam has specific expertise in end-to-end supplier base consolidation. We work as an extension of your procurement team to manage labour intensive tail supply chains on your behalf, streamlining your supplier base across multiple products and services so your employees can focus on the areas that really matter to you.
