The seventh ERP HEADtoHEAD™ event held at the MK Dons Stadium in Milton Keynes was deemed an enormous success by attendees and vendors alike. The event welcomed 140 high level decision makers to compare 12 of the UK’s leading ERP vendors and their solutions, all under one roof.
The event taking place over two days and facilitated by leading independent ERP consultants, Lumenia, kicked off with an exciting head to head battle when all 12 vendors had four minutes each to introduce themselves to the attendees and convince them as to why it would be a good idea to attend their demonstration. The delegates then chose which session to attend, which were divided into Finance, Production, Procurement, Sales Quotation and High Volume Sales business processes.
Attendees also had the chance to listen to a panel discussion from industry end users sharing their experiences of implementing an ERP system as well as an engaging vendor-independent presentation from Lumenia Consulting on ‘Implementing ERP Successfully – Lessons Learned’. Vendors were also on hand on the expo floor 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 – UK 2017”. Intact IQ demonstrated by Intact Software was the 2017 winner with an overall delegate satisfaction rating of 89.6%.
“We have received very positive feedback both from vendors and attendees on the ERP HEADtoHEAD™. Each event gets bigger and better and we are now planning the next one in Dublin in October 2017 with a return to the UK in March 2018”, commented Sean Jackson, Managing Director, Lumenia. Over the years, attendees have included leading manufacturers, distributors and retailers from a range of industries. Comments from among the attendees included: “Excellent event and very good use of my time”; “Very useful to compare all the products at the same time”.
The next event takes place in Dublin in October 2017, followed by the UK event in March 2018. For further information and to pre-register check out the event website www.erpheadtohead.com
