Christopher Carter CEO & Founder Approyo Certificate


In today’s digitally driven world, we face an ever-changing technology landscape. Businesses throughout all industries and regions around the world take measures to compete successfully by using the latest and greatest technology. Being able to harness large amounts of data and organizing it for important decision-making can make an astronomical difference in the way your business operates. The best way to compete through innovation is to implement an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System. When looking at the ERP industry, SAP is one that stands out, due to its rapid growth and demand over recent years, and this is where Approyo comes in.

"Our Mission is to enable Customers & Partners to unlock the full potential of SAP Cloud Technologies to achieve their business goals"

In 2013, CEO and Chairman, Christopher Carter, founded Approyo, a leading global SAP technology solution provider company. Carter had been retired for a couple of years, up until he learned about the release of SAP HANA and its capabilities, which sparked the idea of the company now known as Approyo. Carter is a leader who constantly strives for success, having a clear vision, plan, and providing quality results for all Customers and Partners of Approyo.

“I saw that there was a gap in the SAP eco-system, there was a lack of SAP solution providers focused on SAP S/4 HANA and the usage of the cloud. And even more specifically, there was a lack of companies like Approyo. We specialize in SAP and the solutions surrounding it, unlike other companies that have too many hands in different pots. As the world goes through its current upgrade state and more companies tend to be reviewing their cloud usages, we are given the opportunity to help these businesses transform their operations inside and out with SAP technology.”

His mission has always been to make it simple for companies to implement, upgrade, and migrate their SAP systems and Cloud Solutions. Carter has been a part of the SAP industry for almost 25 years and has experience in working with businesses around the globe, assisting with their use of SAP HANA and Big Data solutions. Carter has been named to multiple awards, including ‘US-Gamechanger of the year’ in 2019 by ACQ5, and the Entrepreneur 360 list. His experience has brought him recognition by the American SAP Users group, Hadoop World, Cloud Expo, ASUG, and more. He is a member of the Forbes Technology Council and has brought Approyo to be listed as a part of the SAP Partner Ecosystem.

Today, Approyo is made up of a team of SAP experts, who currently manage over 200+ SAP landscapes and have done over 100 migrations for customers around the globe. Over the years, they have worked to bring firms running R/3 up to the latest, S/4 1909. They manage solutions such as SAP HANA, S/4HANA, SAP Leonardo, SAP Hybris, and more. Working with the best of breed partners, they combine the capabilities of SAP with AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, etc., extending their services to collaborate and innovate on flexible solutions. Approyo’s headquarters is located in Brookfield, WI, along with other locations throughout the U.S., as well as in India, Europe, and Brazil.

Every time SAP comes out with a new solution, Approyo jumps to the occasion. As companies face the current SAP HANA upgrade deadline coming in 2027, finding a reliable solutions provider to make the migration is essential. Approyo having already migrated several companies to S/4HANA, understands the importance of speed and efficiency when it comes to implementing new systems.

Approyo's extensive capabilities, expertise, and ongoing innovation makes them a great option. Utilizing SAP solutions through Approyo allows companies to improve their business, through flexible, secure, and reliable systems, while allowing the agility of advanced analytics and scalable databases, to overall increase overall Return on Investment (ROI).
