The 18th running of the Lumenia ERP HEADtoHEAD™ event was run virtually on 12-13 October. The event allowed for ERP buyers to compare 13 leading ERP vendors and their solutions over the course of the two days. Facilitated by leading independent ERP consultants, Lumenia Consulting, the event proved to be a huge success for both delegates and the sponsoring ERP vendors.
Featuring live streaming of 26 ERP demonstrations, 3 Lumenia keynote presentations, 2 VIP round-table sessions, vendor sector focused presentations and an industry focused panel discussion. As ERP providers and buyers have now all adapted to the new normal of on-line events, engagement and interaction was at an all-time high.
The event kicked off with an introduction by John Donagher, Consulting Manager at Lumenia Consulting, which was followed by each of the 13 vendors presenting an elevator pitch to introduce themselves to the attendees and convince them as to why they should attend their demonstrations. The delegates then chose the live demo sessions that they wanted to attend which where based on high-level demonstration scripts covering Finance, Production, Procurement, Projects, Sales Quotation, Supply Chain and Sales High Volume.
Delegates also had the chance to listen to three engaging vendor-independent presentations from Lumenia Consulting, on ‘Are you ERP Ready? – Lessons Learned’, ‘Preparing Business Processes for ERP’ and ‘Characteristics of successful ERP Projects’. The panel discussion, which is always an event highlight included four panellists from industry discussing how to avoid ERP implementation mistakes.
The winner of the “ERP HEADtoHEAD™ Best Vendor Demonstration – Ireland 2021” was Sapphire Systems, demonstrating SAP S/4HANA Cloud, with an overall delegate satisfaction rating of 92.3%. In close second and third positions were Intact presenting Intact iQ and Infor presenting Infor CloudSuite respectively.
The next event takes place again on 8-9 March 2022. For further information and to pre-register check out the event website www.erpheadtohead.com
