  • “Exel Computer Systems plc. has continually supported the ERP Connect events for the last 5 years, we do so because we see the return on investment expected from paying for the opportunity to sit in front of the right people, from the right company, and at the right time in their project. We find the majority of our meetings are mutually arranged, and as such it is refreshing to find delegates as engaged and eager to find out about our business as we are of theirs.”
