Vendor Shootout™ for ERP, the nation’s leading enterprise resource planning (ERP) software evaluation, comparison and selection event, will celebrate its 17th iteration with a new event moderator partnership with Panorama Consulting Solutions. In addition to being independent and vendor-agnostic, Panorama is a thought leader in the ERP community and will offer broad and deep market experience and expertise to round out the attendees’ understanding of the selection process.

The 17th Vendor Shootout™ for ERP will include an expanded, content-rich agenda consisting of live, scripted enterprise software demonstrations from top Tier I and Tier II ERP vendors supplemented with educational ERP workshops. The goal and focus of this premier event is to provide a comprehensive guide and framework for enterprise software selection and benefits realization within the manufacturing and distribution industries.

The scripted ERP software demonstrations will detail product functionality, user interfaces and overall usability. Each vendor will follow the same script guidelines to present similar functionality of the basic requirements of manufacturing and distribution companies, allowing for an “apples to apples” comparison between the offerings.

Panorama also will host impartial ERP workshops in conjunction with the live scripted ERP product demonstrations. These workshops are dedicated to helping organizations understand how an ERP solution can impact business operations, the importance of developing a solid business case as well as the significance of requirements planning, managing organizational change and identifying strategies for a successful project team.

“Panorama is pleased and excited to moderate the 17th Vendor Shootout™ for ERP,” said Eric Kimberling, managing partner of Panorama. “The event represents a rare opportunity for ERP project teams and decision-makers to not just compare software offerings from a multitude of vendors but also glean the independent insight necessary to make informed choices and increase benefits realization from their chosen software packages.”
