Intact – Winner At Irish ERP Head To Head 2018

Intact Software recently took part in the Irish ERP HEADtoHEAD event demonstrating our next generation ERP solution, Intact iQ, over two days in the Crowne Plaza Dublin Airport Hotel.


The event welcomed over 120 high-level decision makers from over 50 companies all there to compare 13 of the leading ERP vendors on the same stage.


Pitted against the likes of Epicor, Microsoft Dynamics, NetSuite, Oracle, Sage, Sap Business Oneand 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 a ‘perfect fit’ ERP solution for our customers.


Individual feature demonstrations play a major part of the event with each vendor asked to demo to a specific pre-assigned script showcasing general functionality and then specific functionality ranging from logging sales quotes, procurement processes, controlling sales margins, rebates, stock management etc. Delegates are then asked to rate each demonstration across a range of specific criteria.


Led by Intact Software Sales Consultants, Tim Compton and Darren Gray (pictured below), the Intact iQ demonstrations received an overall score of 92% earning the team the accolade of Best Vendor Demonstration for a 2nd year in a row (Intact iQ – Winner Best ERP Vendor Demonstration – ERP HeadtoHead UK 2017).  


Best Vendor Demonstration Winners Intact


Speaking after the winners announcement Group Sales Director, Mark McArdle (pictured above; 5th from left) said, ‘ Intact iQ is a world class ERP solution. Time and time again when we demonstrate the product to potential customers they are blown away by how intuitive, flexible, feature rich and easy to use the system is. Winning the best vendor demonstration today with Intact iQ directly compared to software developed by billion dollar corporations is extremely rewarding and a further testament to the entire team at Intact Software who are dedicated to creating ERP solutions focused on enabling our customers to operate at their best.’


Intact iQ was also a hot topic during a panel discussion that was held during the event where delegates heard from industry end users discussing the topic ‘Avoiding ERP Implementation Mistakes’.


Intact Software was well represented by JP Kennedy, Managing Director of TileStyle and Chairman of Retail Excellence Ireland (pictured below). TileStyle recently implemented Intact iQand were in an ideal position to relay their experience of implementing their new system and made a valued contribution to the discussion.


As always the well run event, hosted by Lumenia Consulting, was a pleasure to be part of and we look forward to next years event in Milton Keynes in March.

I've been part of the Intact family for 16 rewarding years. After completing my Business Studies degree, I knew Marketing was a field I wanted to pursue. Prior to joining Intact, I primarily worked in the financial sector, focusing on marketing for credit unions. When I started at Intact, I handled all the marketing tasks by myself. Over time, as our team expanded, so did my role. Now, I specialise in crafting compelling content across various platforms, from blogs to video scripts. No two days are the same, and I thrive on the dynamic nature of my role. Whether it's diving into customer case studies or lead campaigns, I'm driven by the positive impact our solutions bring to businesses. In an age where AI plays a significant role, I remain a firm believer in the power of authentic content. When I'm not working, you'll find me enjoying quality time with my family, sewing, or watercolor paintings.
