The twelfth ERP HEADtoHEAD™ event was held at the Doubletree by Hilton Milton Keynes and deemed an enormous success by delegates and vendors alike. The event facilitates high level decision makers to compare 12 leading ERP vendors and their solutions, all under one roof.
Facilitated by leading independent ERP consultants, Lumenia Consulting, the event kicked off with exciting head to head elevator pitches 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 the demo sessions they wanted to attend, divided into Finance, Production, Procurement, Sales, HR and Projects.
Delegates had the chance to listen to two engaging vendor-independent presentations from Lumenia Consulting, on ‘Are you ERP Ready?’ and ‘Characteristics of successful ERP Projects’. Vendors were also available to meet with attendees in the expo area to discuss their solutions in more depth and answer questions. The final session was a panel discussion from industry end users sharing their experiences of implementing an ERP system.
The event closed with the announcement of the winner of the “ERP HEADtoHEAD™ Best Vendor Demonstration – UK 2019”. SAP® S/4HANA Cloud demonstrated by itelligence was the 2019 winner with an overall delegate satisfaction rating of 92%. In close second and third positions where IFS and eBECS respectively.
