Field report of a technical consultant

"My daily routine is to provide close customer support by answering all questions regarding the setup and optimal use of our software and by advising the customer in terms of "best practices". I am also the interface between software development and customer requirements. It is important to see the customer's perspective and communicate this to our software developers. That's how we make better software."

"What I particularly enjoy about my work as a technical consultant is to enable customers to design their processes optimally and thus support them in their everyday work".

"It is sometimes exhausting when everything comes at once: As the interface between software development, project management and the customer, everyone needs the right input from me, especially when deadlines are approaching. Then you have to be able to set priorities and stay calm, even when there is pressure to meet deadlines".
