Anyone shopping for a potential new ERP system should do themselves a favor and attend this shootout.  The presentations were extremely informative and professionally delivered.  The show has us second guessing our original strategy for ERP selection and implementation.  I highly recommend this show."

"A project of this magnitude (software selection) is a very long drawn out process.  The solution you choose will have a tremendous impact on your business.  To review multiple software demonstrations at one time with side by side comparisons saves time narrowing your selections moving your project forward in a shorter period of time."

-Chief Financial Officer
Packaging & Storage Firm

"Having a remote event allowed us to focus on the ERP selection process for several consecutive days rather than shoe-horning individual web demos between other work meetings and not really absorbing it all."
-IT Manager
Industrial Equipment Distributor


"Reviewing several products in the same day really helped us compare each company's features and contrast the advantages and disadvantages.  One demo would lead to questions that we could then ask at other demo's, whereas we might not have though of that issue had it not come up in a previous session."
-Director of Information Technology
Agricultural Equipment Distributor


"The small groups and social gatherings later gave opportunities to discuss particular topics/questions with the presenters."
-IT Manager
Tractor Distributor

-Director of Technology

Medical Grade Wire & Cable Manufacturer



"The ERP Vendor Shootout gave us an opportunity to objectively compare vendors without any sales pressure and helped us shorten our evaluation time considerably. "

-Operations Manager

Transportation Technology



"The scripted demos did allow for a near apples to apples comparison of the software.  It kept them honest (VARs) and allows us to view more of the functionality in less than two hours than I have seen in other half-day demos.  The Keynote presentation had a couple of nuggets that will ensure we get company buy-in on our project ... a key element we had lost sight of while deep in feature comparison."

-VP of Finance

Router Manufacturer



"Scripted Demo's help keep vendors focused and enable a way to compare the other vendor.  Enables you to quickly see multiple vendors in 1 day in 1 spot.  At a 10,000 ft level enables you to determine which vendors may best fit your needs. "
