Twelve leading ERP vendors will go head to head to demonstrate their ERP solutions to attending businesses at the Lumenia ERP HEADtoHEAD™ event, taking place on 17th & 18th October 2017 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Dublin Airport. The event is facilitated by leading independent ERP consultants Lumenia Consulting.
If you are planning to select, upgrade or replace your ERP system, then this is the event for you. It is an ideal opportunity for senior finance or IT executives and members of their ERP selection teams to efficiently review the leading ERP products and to learn how to manage their selection process so that risk is reduced and benefits are maximised. Attendees will gain knowledge over the two days of the event that might otherwise take months of planning and meetings to achieve.
“One of the pitfalls you can fall into when selecting a new ERP system, is to rely solely on the vendor’s sales demo because each vendor will have their own interpretation of what they think you are looking for, which makes it difficult to make comparisons. What you need the vendors to do is to follow a predefined demo script so that you can compare apples to apples. This is the core idea of the ERP HEADtoHEAD™”, commented Sean Jackson, Managing Director of Lumenia Consulting.
ERP products to be demonstrated include SAP Business ByDesign, Oracle ERP Cloud, QAD, Sage X3, Workday, IFS, Epicor, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Intact iQ, EFACS, Infor and Microsoft Dynamics AX. In addition, each ERP vendor will have an individual stand, where specific project requirements can be discussed during the networking breaks.
Demonstrations will be based on defined high-level Scripts covering Finance, Production, Procurement and Sales. Delegates have the option to attend on one day and review three/four products or attend for two days and review seven. The event will also provide opportunities to network and compare experiences with other organisations also planning to implement ERP.
Over the years, attendees have included leading manufacturers, distributors and retailers from a range of industries. Comments from among the 130 attendees at the last event included: “Very good idea; all vendors were well prepared and the like for like comparison was very helpful”; “Very useful to view a number of products over 2 days. Well worth taking time out to visit the event”.
Special discounts apply for early bird bookings and there are a number of complimentary passes available on the Senior Manager Programme.
