About you

You’re a problem solver, knowing the systems, applications and processes that will make a client happy, no matter how complex the IT solution and integrated architecture. You bring expertise and creativity to design activities and building system prototypes to meet client needs.

  • Support clients on ERP standards and prepare them for using their ERP solution by setting training programs and redefining new roles and responsibilities
  • Grow your network through educational opportunities, building and maintaining your personal and business networks, and joining professional organizations
  • Travel as needed.
