As a Professional Services Consultant you will undertake activities such as running workshops, reviewing business processes, capturing requirements, configuring our solution based on gathered requirements, demonstrating your configuration as a proof of concept, support of testing, customer training and post go-live third line support. The consultant should have a firm understanding of general and specific business practices including the ability to identify gaps and issues in processes and systems. They will maintain a detailed knowledge both of our software and the industry requirements in your designated areas of expertise. As well as providing services directly to customers, you will also help define specifications and design solutions for future developments.
