Successful carve-out: with SAP S/4HANA® into a flexible and digital future

Coloyal GmbH successfully migrates to S/4HANA®

Agile, digital business processes and data analytics in real time: together with the Innovative Systems Consulting AG, Coloyal has replaced its previous finance system within just four months and implemented SAP S/4HANA® and SAP® Analytics Cloud.

“For business processes to be as efficient as possible, we need a sustainable technology. We now have established this technology with S/4HANA®. A big compliment to the project team who was composed of more than a dozen consultants and key users from our specialty department. Because of their great commitment, the system change could be implemented during the intensive year-end closing,” said CFO Christian Bäumer. With the ambitious go-live aim by 01 January 2020, the project team of Coloyal and ISC AG concentrated for a few weeks intensely on the carve-out of SAP® ERP by the previous parent company Bertelsmann Arvato to S/4HANA®, the next generation of the SAP® Business Suite.

The employees of Coloyal GmbH work in a more focused way and have more business insights to proactively address their stakeholders’ expectations. The real time reporting of SAP® Analytics Cloud created the basis for optimally supporting management and operations. Forward-looking, the Coloyal team simultaneously builds up valuable knowledge in process optimization by using the latest SAP technology. As a digital core, SAP S/4HANA® offers speed and flexibility for the further development of new, digital business models. In this way, innovations are advanced faster. „We look forward to the next steps in the direction of digital transformation with Coloyal GmbH,” explains Peter Heinold, chairman of ISC AG.
