Last week saw Intact Software compete in Lumenia Consulting’s Irish ERP HEADtoHEAD event.
Held over two days in the Crowne Plaza Dublin Airport Hotel, the event welcomed over 120 high-level decision makers to compare 12 of the leading ERP vendors on an apple to apple basis on the same stage.
Pitted against the likes of Sage X3, Microsoft AX, Microsoft Nav, Epicor and other leading ERP vendors in front of an audience of committed buyers, it was an ideal opportunity for the Intact team to highlight how Intact Software and our flagship product, Intact iQ, delivers unique value for all of our iQ customers.
In his elevator pitch, Mark McArdle - Group Sales Director, talked about the 4 P's of ERP Implementation and how the evaluation phase should challenge you to look beyond the product features and the specific system itself and to consider all aspects of your business and how they are linked to ERP.
Individual feature demonstrations play a major part of the event and were provided to judges over both days by Intact's Darren and Tim (pictured above) who provided four demo's in total to judges. Three demo's on day one and one on day two, ranging from logging sales quotes, procurement modules, controlling sales margins and stock management.
During the panel discussion later in the day, delegates heard from industry end users discussing the topic ‘Avoiding ERP Implementation Mistakes’.
Intact Software was well represented by Gavin Brett (CEO) from Brett Supplies (pictured below), and as recent Intact iQ users, Brett Supplies were in an ideal position to relay their experience of implementing their new system and made a valued contribution to the discussion.
For the hard fought 'Best Vendor Demonstration Award', Intact Software was awarded Silver by only a slender two-point margin.
Overall it was another great two days and we look forward to competing again in 2018.
