This conference was the best one I ever attended. Very professional speeches and intel. Great networking and excellent organization. One-on-one meeting with analysts opened my eyes to many aspects in ERP systems and finance applications.

I believe this is a really good conference and would like to suggest it to my friends and other colleagues as well. The stuff covered here was really important, specifically the One-on-one conversation. That helps me to understand the different products/software available which we can consider using in our organization.


Great conference! Good to get so many relevant financial systems vendors at the same time while getting exposed to emerging industry trends!
