Case Study:

Coles Group

Coca-Cola Amatil




Asia-Pacific Japan

Coles Group Limited is an Australia-based company that operates predominantly in the retail industry. The Company sells various products, including fresh food, groceries, household goods, liquor, fuel and financial services through its store network and online platforms.

Lift-and-Shift powered by the Nexus Suite

The Coles Group were on SAP On-Premise for 13 years and are moving to ECP / EC via a Nexus Powered “lift-and-shift” with remediation (i.e. Enterprise Restructure, Configuration Rationalisations etc)


Configuration tables






Without the Nexus Suite this would have taken 12 months of effort by multiple SAP functional resources


Coles saved 9 months of consulting fees, when compared to the cost of the software equates to a return on investment of over 1,000%.


Coles Group have the full history of their employee master data available from within their Employee Central Payroll environment and once live they will be running Retroactive Payroll Processing within ECP!

Go-Live will take approximately approximately, half a second per employee (this includes all master data, time & payroll results data, audit log data etc) in 10 concurrent processing sessions.

The day after the configuration was shifted, Coles were running payroll within ECP and comparing the results between ECP and their on-premise production environment for a subset of around 1,000 employees through the use of the Nexus Suite Payroll Verification Module.

During the Coles implementation the Transport & Configuration Analysis Module was used on multiple occasions in order to identify, analyse and replicate the numerous ‘Delta’ configuration changes that occurred within their On-Premise landscape into the Coles’ new EC Payroll landscape thereby ensuring that ECP didn’t stagnate from the original migration and was always up-to-date.
