The eleventh ERP HEADtoHEAD™ event was held on the 16th/17th October at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Dublin. It was declared a great success by both attendees and vendors alike with over 100 high level decision makers in attendance.
The event took place over two days and was facilitated by leading independent ERP consultants, Lumenia Consulting. It allowed delegates to compare 13 leading ERP products over the course of two days, all under one roof.
It kicked off with an exciting head to head battle when all thirteen vendors had four minutes each to introduce themselves and convince attendees as to why they should attend their demonstrations. The delegates then selected the demo sessions that they wanted to attend, these addressed the areas of Finance, Production, Procurement, Sales High Volume, Sales Quotation, Projects and HR.
Attendees also had the chance to listen to a panel discussion from industry experts sharing their experiences of implementing ERP and avoiding ERP implementation mistakes, as well as two engaging vendor-independent presentations from Lumenia Consulting: ‘Are you ERP Ready?’ and ‘Characteristics of Successful ERP Projects’. Vendors were also on hand during the networking sessions to discuss their solutions in more depth and answer questions.
The event closed with the announcement of the winner of the “ERP HEADtoHEAD™ Best Vendor Demonstration – Ireland 2018”. Intact iQ demonstrated by Intact Software was the 2018 winner with an overall delegate satisfaction rating of 91.6%. IFS and eBECS were second and third respectively.
Sean Jackson, Managing Director, Lumenia commented, “This is the seventh time that we have run the event in Dublin. We strive to improve each event, and this is definitely our most successful Dublin event. We have received really positive comments from both vendors and attendees.”
