Case Study: CONA Services

Coca-Cola Amatil




North America

Coke One North America (CONA) provides each of the 12 largest Coca-Cola Company’s bottling partners with the tools they need to collaborate smoothly. CONA Services supports over 80,000 employees, processing $21 billion of revenue per annum.

CONA Services were on SAP On-Premise for 16 years and have moved to ECP / EC via a Nexus Powered “lift-and-shift” with remediation (i.e. Enterprise Restructure, Configuration Rationalisations etc)

Without the Nexus Suite this would have taken more than 9 months of effort by multiple SAP functional resources


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


Thanks to the Nexus Suite Data Replication Module CONA Services has the full history of their employee master data available from within their Employee Central Payroll environment.

Go-Live took approximately 6 hours for their 9K staff, that’s under 2 seconds per person and includes all of the employee data (all master data, time & payroll results , audit logs etc) in 10 concurrent processing sessions.

The day after the configuration was shifted, CONA Services 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; the Payroll Verification Module also ensured that the Payroll Parallel Testing phases for the Go-Live of each Bottler was simple, and thorough.

In addition, the implementation of the Payroll Control Centre was fast tracked using Nexus Suite HCM Reporting Module to power all of the checks and KPI charts required. No ABAP coding was required to achieve CONA’s desired reporting outcomes.

“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!”
