Last week we showcased Microsoft Dynamics ERP at ERP HEADtoHEAD in Milton Keynes. Officially there to inform around Dynamics NAV, with our new parent company, Columbus Global supporting us, we were also able to cover Dynamics AX / Dynamics 365 for Operations.
The event is hosted by ERP consultants Lumenia. Lumenia assist companies with their requirements specification and selection process for all things ERP. The ERP HEADtoHEAD event was launched to help companies in that early stage of wading through the marketing material to determine who should be on their shortlist.
This event was the seventh ERP HEADtoHEAD and was the most successful yet, bringing 140 decision makers together with 12 of the UK’s leading ERP vendors. The format of the two-day event included solution demonstrations, showcases and the exhibitor stand break out area. Event host, Lumenia, also provided practical advice on how to plan the selection process through to successful go-live.
The feedback from both days was all positive. We enjoyed specific feedback on the Dynamics ERP sessions that focused on Finance, Production and Sales High Volume processes in Dynamics AX and Dynamics NAV. Attendees consistently praised the opportunity to see the competitive products in action working through the same process and so it was great fun to see the Dynamics ERP solutions put through their paces (impressively so!).
The event also provided networking opportunities and panel debates. Implementing ERP is not for the faint hearted and it was great to hear the exchange of “war stories” alongside sharing tips. Many of the attendees and vendors were there for at least the second time and we look forward to promoting Microsoft’s ERP solutions at the next event.
