The 17th running of the Lumenia ERP HEADtoHEAD™ event was ran virtually again this year. The event allowed for ERP buyers to compare 14 leading ERP vendors and their solutions on-line. Facilitated by leading independent ERP consultants, Lumenia Consulting, the event proved to be a huge success by both delegates and the sponsoring ERP vendors.
The event featured streaming of 32 live ERP demos, 3 Lumenia keynote presentations, 2 VIP round-table sessions and an industry focused panel discussion. As we are now all adapting 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 Lumenia’s, Consulting Manager and event Chair, Ian O’Toole which was followed by each of the 14 vendors giving 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. The demos followed high-level demonstration scrips 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 ‘Preparing Business Processes for ERP’, ‘Are you ERP Ready? – Lessons Learned’ and ‘Characteristics of successful ERP Projects’. The panel discussion, which is always a favourite comprised of 3 panelists from industry discussing how to avoid ERP implementation mistakes.
The winner of the “ERP HEADtoHEAD™ Best Vendor Demonstration – UK 2021” was Sapphire Systems, demonstrating SAP S/4HANA Cloud, with an overall delegate satisfaction rating of 95%. In close second and third positions were QAD presenting QAD Adaptive ERP and NoBlue presenting Oracle NetSuite respectively.
The next event takes place again on 12 – 13 October 2021. For further information and to pre-register check out the event website www.erpheadtohead.com
