My suggestion is to meet as many as you can within your time limit to choose one that best fits your requirements. Choosing an ERP vendor is a bit like looking for a life partner.

Important tip: Try to do as much customization as possible using the off the shelf components in Dynamics within Dynamics; this will ensure your future upgrade paths will be seamless and less dependent on your vendors. The more competent Dynamics partners will know how to make Dynamics work off the shelf for you instead of modifying the platform to meet all your needs but making you more dependent on them. Add in the design requirement to allow you to choose other MS vendors in the future.
