Integrating Live Enterprise Software Demos with Interactive Vendor Sessions and Networking, Gives Manufacturers and Distributors a Leg Up When it Comes to ERP Selection

Share Article

Vendor Shootout™ for ERP offers an interactive approach to software selection, while providing organizations the much sought-after face time with a selection of the world’s top ERP vendors.

Spending time with the vendors and getting to interact and discuss our specific issues was huge. Really helps get a clearer picture of how the systems can benefit our company.

The Vendor Shootout™ for ERP returns for its 23rd iteration, June 16-18, 2015 at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers in Chicago, Illinois. The agenda will include a series of live, scripted Enterprise Software demonstrations from a selection of the world’s top ERP vendors, keynote presentations from industry experts, including event moderator Technology Evaluation Centers, and the recently announced Vendor Spotlight session.

The goal and focus of these events is to provide an impartial platform for comparison of top Tier I and Tier II ERP solutions, bring objectivity and transparency to the Enterprise Software selection process, reduce the cost, risk, and duration of Enterprise Software selection projects, and foster networking among fellow manufacturers and distributors going through the same process.

The scripted ERP 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 manufacturing and distribution companies. 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.

The newly added Vendor Spotlight session is an interactive, ‘gamified’ question and answer session where manufacturing and distribution companies get to take a deeper dive with vendors on topics relative to their business operations and requirements in an ERP solution. Sample topics include future technologies and business value.

Aside from the scripted demos and Vendor Spotlight session, manufacturing and distribution companies will have the opportunity to participate in several general session and keynote presentations focused around preparing for an ERP assessment and selection, how to avoid the pitfalls and tools that can help simplify the process.

Registration for the event will also include several networking opportunities including a golf outing at the Harborside International Golf Center, cocktail receptions and an exclusive attendee only dinner.

Whether you are evaluating On-Premise ERP solutions or Cloud Software / SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions...this event is a must attend for any organization that is considering a software upgrade or software replacement.

Early bird discounts are available through May 1, 2015. To register, please visit http://www.erpshootout.com. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact us at info(at)ERPShootout(dot)com.
