CONA Services (Coke One North America) provides each of the 12 largest Coca-Cola Company’s bottling partners with the tools they need to collaborate smoothly. CONA used the Data Replication Module to “lift-and-shift” their SAP On-Premise production environment into their new Employee Payroll Central Environment. The Payroll Verification Module was used to compare and analyse any anomalies between the two payroll systems and the implementation of the Payroll Control Centre was fast tracked using Nexus Suite HCM Reporting Module to power all of the checks and KPI tiles CONA required.
“CONA has used the Nexus Suite from TIK to rapidly migrate all the payroll configuration from our SAP On-Premise HR & Payroll environment to our new SuccessFactors ECP environment. The total elapsed time for the migration of the payroll configuration for Wave 1 (which included a baseline of all payroll configuration for the bottler companies across all waves) was completed in a matter of days, and the solution worked very well.
We have also used the other modules of the Nexus Suite to perform parallel payroll comparisons as well as data copies and PCC Policy Check reporting, and have been very impressed with the speed of execution and usability. The Nexus Suite has allowed us to get payroll up and running in EC Payroll much faster than would be otherwise possible!”
Coca-Cola Amatil Limited is one of the largest bottlers of non-alcoholic ready-to-drink beverages in the Asia-Pacific region and one of the world’s five major Coca-Cola bottlers. CCA operates in six countries – Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Fiji and Samoa. At CCA the Data Replication Module was used to “lift-and-shift” their On-Premise SAP production environment into their new Employee Payroll Central Environment and the Payroll Verification Module was used to compare and analyse any anomalies between the two payroll systems.
“The Nexus Suite was a key element to the success of our project. Saving us many months of effort by avoiding the need to reconfigure payroll from scratch, removing the need for data manipulation and cleansing, all while allowing us to retain our full payroll history, it allowed us to easily make the transition from our SAP On-Premise payroll to the Employee Central Payroll cloud solution and a reimplementation of the core SuccessFactors module with speed and a high degree of oversight through the visibility the tool affords with its auditing and reporting.
The support available from the TIK team was outstanding, on the couple of occasions we looked for their input they readily responded with clear guidance and solutions. Having the Nexus Suite made our implementation a great success with its automation and toolkit it reduced costs, avoided soaking up significant internal resources and enabled us to deliver a robust solution for the business”
Coles Group Limited is an Australia-based company that operates predominantly in the retail industry. The Coles Group was used the Data Replication Module to “lift-and-shift” their SAP On-Premise production environment into their new Employee Payroll Central Environment whilst also allowing for full retrospective payroll to be run within ECP. The Payroll Verification Module was used to compare and analyse any anomalies between the two payroll systems for their 120,000 staff. The HCM Reporting Module has been used to great effect to create hundreds of reports in a matter of weeks. These reports have consisted of PCC Policy Checks, Employee Forms, Store based payroll or master data reconciliations.
“Coles Group was able to leverage the Nexus Suite to quickly and easily migrate from our existing SAP On-Premise system to Employee Central Payroll while also allowing us to perform retrospective payroll processing prior to the Go Live date in Employee Central. For Coles this was a huge benefit due to the nature of our business. The Nexus Suite Payroll Verification Module was invaluable in ensuring that each of our 120,000 team members were compared and any differences identified and analysed to ensure that payroll was being calculated exactly the same way between Employee Central Payroll System and SAP On-Premise.”
The Bureau of Meteorology is the National Meteorological Authority for Australia. The Bureau maintains a network of field offices across the Australian continent, on neighbouring islands and in Antarctica. The Bureau uses the Data Replication Module to replicate over six years worth of PA and PD master data, Payroll, Time and Audit clusters between their SAP landscapes rather than having to rely upon client refreshes.
Since its implementation of SAP HR in 2005, The Bureau of Meteorology has struggled to find a suitable tool that would allow the quick and accurate replication of Payroll and Time results, and master data, between clients. Generally those tools the Bureau had previously utilised proved to both cumbersome and restrictive. The Nexus Suite Data Replication Module now allows the Bureau to quickly copy PA and PD data, on an individual or organisational level: this capability has assisted in the rapid resolution of payroll issues as well as been a invaluable tool in this organisation’s support pack and regression testing analysis. I now regard the HCM Data Replication Module as being an integral part of the Bureau’s SAP HR landscape.
Orica is the world’s leading supplier of commercial explosives to more than 50 countries. One of the biggest challenges we face is delivering a single HRMS to all countries due to the complex issue of integrating employee data from all countries into a single database. The answer to this complex problem – the Nexus Suite.
With Nexus we have been able to take payroll extracts from all countries and tailor the inbound interface into our ECC6 SAP HR environment. The HCM Gateway Modules ‘executables’ are configured, by our functional resources, account for country, SAP specific fields, values, numbers, symbols, etc. Having each of the ‘executables’ linked together through the Nexus Controller allows us to process each countries data file in a matter of minutes compared to a number of days in the past. Our process has no manual intervention as files are received on the server and then auto processed. Emails notify our support staff if there are any issues with the load.
We don’t know how we could have completed this without Nexus. It is a unique tool and will transform any organisations data integration requirements.
During the HR Assist (SAP) implementation, TIK partnered with SAP allowing Victoria Police to leverage off the Nexus Suite Data Conversion and Payroll Verification Modules. This ultimately resulted in a successful migration from multiple legacy applications into the majority of the SAP HCM sub modules (i.e. PA, PD, LMS, PY, FI/CO, OH&S etc) with virtually 100% accuracy. The combination of these two modules allowed Victoria Police to perform full payroll verification runs on the entire Victoria Police employee base (which is over 14,000 employees) with all of the analysis being performed within the Payroll Verification Module.
During each of the payroll verification cycles the delta processing options available within the Data Conversion Module provided us with the ability to identify and load all of the transactional data that had changed or been created in the legacy system during the applicable period thereby preventing us from having to use thirty or so resources to enter the transactional data into the system manually.
All of the conversions were performed through an auditable and automated process using the Nexus Suite Data Conversion Module with an overall failure rate of only 0.0003%. This was a result of previously identified data cleansing issues that had been signed off by Victoria Police prior to the conversion occurring. If it wasn’t for the Nexus Suite and its ease of use and sophistication the HR Assist project wouldn’t have been anywhere near the success that it was.

Prior to QuickLoad in order to get data into SAP we had to write LSMW’s and bludgeon the data into shape. If anything changed in the underlying configuration we’d have to re-record the LSMW and start the whole process again. With QuickLoad getting data into SAP becomes effortless – I can’t imagine having to go back to LSMW’s.
