Merger of Pay Systems
Ørsted is one of the leading energy groups in Europe. Ørsted’s business is based on procuring, producing, distributing and trading energy and related products in Europe
Back in 2010 more than 85% of the heat and power was produced by fossil fuels – mainly coal. Today less than 10 years after, Ørsted has no business in any fossil fuel and has grown into a global leader within green energy with a production of 10.0TWh in 2018.
The slogan is “Let’s create a world that runs entirely on green energy”.
Ørsted is headquartered in Denmark and had approximately 6500 employees and a revenue amounted to DKK 76.9 billion.
Ørsted was formally known as Dong Energy and was created in 2006 through the merger of 6 large Danish companies: DONG, Elsam, Energy E2, Nesa, Copenhagen Energy (Electric) and Frederiksberg Supply.
This resulted in a complex process and system landscape that Ørsted was now in the process of streamlining
A natural part of this efficiency improvement project was to ensure that all employees are managed through the same common SAP HCM solution, including the payment of wages which in the past have been handled by 4 different systems out of which one was not SAP-based.
In less than 24 months, Ørsted have fused 2 KMD SAP Net Pay Calculator solutions that ran on separate systems with a KMD Perspective Salaray (Unix-based with employee master data synchronized with SAP) into a single, coherent KMP SAP Net Pay Calculator platform that is geared to handle future expansion, both in the number of employees and size/complexity of conventions and agreements.
All employee master data will be in the same system and all payment of wages from Denmark will be made from the system in order to ensure high transparency and reliability.
