Carrothers Associates, LLC, is a supply chain solution firm specializing in SAP processes headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina. Founded in 2007, Carrothers Associates provides expert supply chain services utilizing the SAP ERP system. After experiencing and witnessing numerous poorly run SAP projects, Carrothers Associates was formed to provide a supply chain process knowledge focus with SAP being the instrument instead of SAP being the focus. Carrothers Associates provides SAP consulting services in 23 SAP strategic industries with emphasis on Consumer Packaged Goods, A&D, Oil and Gas, Pharma and the Public Sector. With over 30 years of industry experience including 18 years of SAP, Carrothers Associates is committed to finding the right Supply Chain solution using SAP and helping firms reach the ROI promised in their initial SAP implementation.

Carrothers Associates was founded because of situations such as:

"Our client has an urgent need for a SAP SCM generalist to help clean up an implementation that went wrong and is a complete mess. They need this consultant onsite in Xxxxxx, NY. This consultant will be responsible for documentation, configuration, Master data, Scheduling, support, mentoring, and must be able to provide suggestions. Consultant must also have clear communication and a roll up your sleeve attitude. It's a small team so being flexible and willing to handle anything that is thrown at you is important.
Currently they are having some MRP Issues, seeing spikes in their inventory and need help expanding their current engagement."

" Inventory management expert with A&D industry experience required. Customer has a problem related to Alternate and Substitute parts that is driving poor consumption of inventory and procurement. Some of this may be driven by the fact that they've complicated their part numbering system. They are looking to get an expert teed up to spend a few days with us sometime before the end of the month to identify what will be involved to fix the issue."

"Basically what their CIO just told us is the following: "we know we have an aging workforce at these facilities that are not computer/software savvy and even though they've been through training we do not have a good comfort level on their ability to be ready at go live."  They really want these folks to act as trouble shooting/ support / area expert pre go-live, during go-live and then after support."
