ERP HEADtoHEAD Event - Comparing leading ERP products
Posted by Elise Toulman
Proudly sponsoring the 9th ERP HEADtoHEAD Event, Unit4 will be in Milton Keynes on 6th and 7th March at the DoubleTree by Hilton, showcasing our people-centric ERP solution, Unit4 Business World.
Designed specifically for businesses looking to upgrade or replace their ERP system, senior Finance and/or IT Executives, together with their ERP selection teams, are introduced to 12 leading ERP products. As potential buyers of ERP, attendees will learn how to manage the selection process, reducing risk and maximising benefits, surrounded by others who are about to embark on a similar journey.
Traditional ERP struggles to keep up with changes in business processes. Legacy solutions are built with managing manufacturing and production at the heart, making it difficult to lend itself to service-based, people-centric organisations. Unit4 Business World brings a flexible, adaptive platform with tools for effective communication and collaboration, that allow organisations to plan for, and evolve with, changes in the market, in technology, and in its people.
Attendees have the option to review three or four ERP products in one day, or take advantage of the full two day event and review seven. After being welcomed by Lumenia, Europe’s leading independent ERP consulting organisation, each of the 12 ERP vendors will be given just four minutes to introduce themselves to attendees, describing what makes them different, and why you should attend their presentation for more information.
The presentations themselves are 60 minutes long, and are focused on Finance, Production, Procurement, Projects, Sales Quotation or Sales High Volume.
On top of the vendor-specific demonstrations, which offer a true like-for-like comparison for each vendor, attendees will have the opportunity to network in the Expo Area with other organisations who are also planning to implement ERP. Vendors will also have their own stands in this area to offer detailed demonstrations for attendees who have specific requirements.
In his presentation, “Preparing for ERP: Lessons Learned”, Sean Jackson, Managing Director of Lumenia Consulting will be offering vendor-neutral insight into understanding the common mistakes made by organisations during ERP selection processes, offering tips for ensuring that planned ERP project benefits are realised.
Day one will finish with a networking reception where drinks and canapés will be served.
Day two will include a panel discussion, where attendees will hear from companies sharing their experiences of ERP implementation; the pitfalls and learnings, and the unexpected unknowns.
Day two will finish with a formal wrap-up and a presentation for the ERP HEADtoHEAD™ Best Vendor Demonstration – UK 2018.
