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

“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

“I was able to get 2 months of research completed in 2 days.”

—Director of Information Technology, Life Sciences Products Manufacturer
