ERP software is a solution—don’t let it be a problem.

The ERP software selection process is complex—from requirements gathering to negotiating with vendors to managing the implementation. It’s often difficult to allocate the time and resources needed to successfully tackle this major, organization-wide undertaking, and problems can be costly.

Save your company time, frustration and money by attending ESS for ERP. In this 3-day event, you’ll learn how to manage the challenges that come with an ERP software selection and implementation project and gain an understanding on how to cut through the marketplace clutter to make data-driven decisions.

At the ESS for ERP Conference, you’ll:

  • Compare leading ERP products head-to-head in scripted demo sessions
  • Get answers to your specific questions in one-on-one meetings with vendors
  • Learn how to manage the challenges of a software implementation
  • Talk with TEC’s experts about how to make the best software choices
  • Share experiences (good and bad!) with your peers in the industry

“Best way to get a neutral presentation of the products in a concise format. For a company like us that is early in the process of deciding the “short list”, this was invaluable.”

—Controller, Paperboard Manufacturer

“This was a first-class show. Anyone shopping for a potential new ERP system should do themselves a favor and attend this event. The presentations were extremely informative and professionally delivered. The show has us second-guessing our original strategy…I highly recommend this show.”

—Materials Manager, Transport Equipment Manufacturer
