The 13th ERP HEADtoHEAD™ event was held on the 18/19 June at the Van der Valk Hotel in Utrecht, Netherlands . It was Lumenia’s second event in the Netherlands, who now run three events annually in three different countries.


The event took place over two days and was facilitated by leading independent ERP consultants, Lumenia Consulting. It kicked off with an exciting head to head battle when eight vendors had five minutes each to introduce themselves and convince attendees as to why they should attend their ERP product demonstrations. There were some great presentations and the delegates then chose the demo sessions that they wanted to attend, which were divided into Supply Chain, Finance, Production, Procurement, Sales and Projects.

Attendees also had the chance to listen to two engaging vendor-independent presentations from Lumenia Consulting: ‘Are you ERP Ready?’ and ‘Characteristics of Successful ERP Projects’, as well as listen to a panel discussion of experts sharing their experiences of implementing ERP and avoiding ERP implementation mistakes. The ERP vendors were also available in the exhibition room to discuss their solutions in more depth and answer questions.

The event closed with the announcement of the winner of the “ERP HEADtoHEAD™ Best Vendor Demonstration – The Netherlands 2019”. NetSuite OneWorld demonstrated by Fast Four was the 2019 winner with an overall delegate satisfaction rating of 87%. Aspera Solutions and IFS were respectively second and third.

Sean Jackson, Managing Director, Lumenia commented, “We have received very positive feedback both from vendors and attendees on the ERP HEADtoHEAD™ events. All the event delegates are in the market for an ERP solution which encourages great interaction and discussion at the event and we are currently planning the next series of events.” 

The fourteenth ERP HEADtoHEAD™ event will take place in Dublin on 9th/10th October 2019, followed by the UK event in March 2020 and a return to the Netherlands in June 2020. For further information and to pre-register check out the event website
