The Kroger Co., one of the nation's largest grocery retailers, recently decided to incorporate an outsourced accounts payable solution into its shared services organization to better serve its internal customers. Working alongside SourceHOV, Kroger was able to develop a shared services center that allowed the company to evolve its sourcing strategy. During this presentation, Marc Baines, senior vice president of Finance and Accounting Solutions for SourceHOV, and Melissa Coomer, senior accounting manager for Kroger, will examine the experiences, benefits and challenges the company faced in adopting and implementing workflow technology as part of its AP process.

Attendees of this case study presentation will gain an understanding of the importance of selecting a vendor that best fits with the unique philosophy and practices of their own AP teams.
