What Should You Expect?

A comprehensive, content-rich agenda that includes both scripted ERP cloud software product demos from top vendors, as well as general session presentations that will provide essential insight to the enterprise software selection process. 



Live Scripted Demos

Through live scripted product demonstrations from the top enterprise software vendors, organizations can accomplish during this event, what would normally take months of planning, logistics and organizing. By attending this unique event, top ERP cloud software selection teams will be able to create a short list of potential solutions from an elite selection of top enterprise software solutions in the market and gain critical insight to the selection process.


The scripted ERP cloud application product demonstrations will cover product functionality, user interfaces, and overall usability.  Each vendor will follow the same script guidelines to present similar functionality covering the basic requirements of distribution and manufacturing companies.  Vendors are under strict instructions to explicitly indicate any customizations, modifications, or 3rd party products used in order to complete the presentation.  The same presentations will be made during each of the scripted product demonstrations during the event so you can easily compare between packages and select your short list for further evaluation.
