It's a time saver - I learned so much about the different vendors - it has armed me to be a better selector.

Geared toward organizations in the manufacturing and distribution industries who are currently budgeting for an upgrade or replacement of their current Enterprise Software solution, the Vendor Shootout™ for ERP is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to see the top ERP software vendors, all under one roof. Through scripted product demonstrations from the top Enterprise Software vendors, organizations can accomplish during this two day event, what would normally take months of planning, logistics and organizing.

Moderated by Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC) of Montreal, Canada, the 15th Vendor Shootout™ for ERP is scheduled for September 26-27, 2012 at the San Mateo Marriott San Francisco Airport. This unique event has become the new way to shop for Enterprise Software. With record breaking attendance in 2011, the value and benefit companies are experiencing from attending this event is apparent.

"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." Materials Manager, Plastics Manufacturer/Past Vendor Shootout™ Attendee

Bringing the top players in the ERP marketplace together in one event affords companies the opportunity to go window shopping, without the pressure of an onsite product demonstration. The fall 2012 product lineup includes abas ERP, Infor ERP SyteLine, EPICOR, IQMS EnterpriseIQ, Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, Plex Online, Sage ERP X3 and SAP Business ByDesign. Through the ‘apples to apples’ comparison the scripted product demos provide, companies can benefit from cost and time savings on their overall selection process, ultimately walking away with a short list of potential ERP vendors after just two days.

The goal of the event is to simplify ERP software selection processes, alleviating some of the painful inefficiencies by coordinating onsite software presentations and delivering them in one event. The scripted demos cover product functionality, user interfaces, and overall usability. In addition to the scripted demos, the event will include presentations on software selection best practices and tools available to help companies narrow their search even further.
