Sainsbury's case study

Sainsbury’s began using GlobalExpense (now from Concur) in 2004, having moved from a spreadsheet based system and reimbursing colleagues by cash or cheque. Operating more than 573 supermarkets and 430 convenience stores, Sainsbury’s employs 155,000 people. GlobalExpense is used to manage and control all expenses, whether for store-based colleagues, sourcing departments based in Asia, or store support centre colleagues. Now all local purchases in stores are made using procurement cards with transactions feeding through to the GlobalExpense solution for easy reconciliation by the card holder.
