The tenth ERP HEADtoHEAD™ event was held on the 20th/21st June at the Van der Valk Hotel in Utrecht, Netherlands. It was Lumenia’s first event in the Netherlands and not their last as it was declared a success by both attendees and vendors alike.
The event took place over two days and was facilitated by leading independent ERP consultants, Lumenia Consulting. It kicked off with an exciting head to head battle when seven vendors had seven minutes each to introduce themselves and convince attendees as to why they should attend their demonstrations. The delegates then chose the demo sessions they wanted to attend, which were divided into Finance, Production, Sales and Projects.
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’. The ERP vendors were also available in the exhibition room 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 – Netherlands 2018”. Epicor ERP Version 10 demonstrated by Aspera Solutions was the 2018 winner with an overall delegate satisfaction rating of 83%. IFS and QAD were respectively second and third.
Sean Jackson, Managing Director, Lumenia commented, “We have received very positive feedback both from vendors and attendees on the ERP HEADtoHEAD™ events. We strive to improve each event and we are currently planning the next events.”
The eleventh ERP HEADtoHEAD™ event takes place in Dublin on 16th/17th October 2018, followed by the UK event in March 2019 and a return to the Netherlands in June 2019. For further information and to pre-register check out the event website www.erpheadtohead.com.
