    • Evaluate, implement and manage Technical Support systems (i.e. Case Management, Workforce Management, Knowledge Management) to provide organizational efficiency for the operations of the global support teams.
    • Monitor and participate in outbound, cross functional and senior staff level communications to insure the right messaging is managed at the appropriate level for all significant and critical issues. Exceptional communications skills, written and oral are essential.
    • Manage key performance metrics to ensure best in class technical support delivery via multiple customer touch points (i.e. phone, email, web portal)
    • Build and maintain the long-term vision and plan for growth of the technical support organization, which includes analyzing cost structure, service consistency and process optimization for quality team structure.
    • Manage customer escalations and relationships. Work with customers on support issues, individual support plans and requests.
    • Ensure customer satisfaction reflects the highest quality of support delivery.
    • Follow up with customers on survey feedback regularly.
    • Engage with the Sales Account Team on pro-active strategies for key accounts.
    • Foster a culture of engagement and excitement. Build meaningful people relations to foster a results-driven environment where employees feel empowerment.
