Maistro survey

Buying services in the tail

Digital marketplaces have made it easier to buy goods from unknown/new suppliers – and if they’re not right, you send them back and get your money back. But that doesn’t work for services. Not only do you have to find new suppliers, you have to write briefs, clarify details, review and score responses, compare quotes, negotiate and sign contracts.

Supply Management Insider has teamed up with Maistro to get your thoughts on tail spend. Does the tail spend on services create unnecessary paperwork? Do you see technology as a potential solution, or fear it may impact your ability to have full control of the procurement process?

The survey should only take about five minutes and as a thank you for your time and effort we will enter you into a prize draw to win £100 worth of John Lewis vouchers!*  We'll also share the insights once the survey is run so you can benchmark your experience with industry peers.
