ERP HEADtoHEAD is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to see the top ERP software vendors, all under one roof.
Each product will be demonstrated by the top ERP vendors using a single script, allowing for a true like-for-like comparison. 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.
Products from leading ERP vendors, including SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, Sage, Epicor, IFS, Access and Infor will be demonstrated. In addition, each vendor will have an individual demonstration stand, where specific project requirements can be discussed in between presentations. The event will also provide opportunities to network and compare experiences with other organisations also planning to implement ERP.
This event will be facilitated by Lumenia, Europe’s leading independent ERP consulting organisation. Lumenia has managed over 100 ERP projects and will share project experiences and ERP selection and implementation knowledge during the event.
