6 months research in 1 day
ERP implementation can be one of the most difficult business challenges
Competition in the manufacturing sector is fierce. A multitude of global competitors, tough market conditions, weak state support and many other factors mean that, while an ERP system is essential, it is extremely difficult to find the time to properly assess all the relevant ERP options. It is especially hard to compare all the systems with the vendors in face-to-face meetings.
For the last 10 years, Connect ERP has been changing the way businesses approach software selection by minimizing the overall time and effort required to qualify potential enterprise software vendors.
The next Connect ERP (meet-the-buyer / meet-the-vendor) event is due to take place in Chicago, Illinois in June 2017. This event is produced by Hennik Research, publishers of The Manufacturer.
This event offers the perfect platform for manufacturers (and other ERP-ready firms) to properly assess, condense and conduct their research prior implementation.
”I thought the day was very well organised and a great opportunity to meet several vendors under one roof. It has potentially saved me many hours work already’’
-Derek Neil, Director, ConMech
