Functional Application Manager
Supply chain is evolving fast: we need you to improve our business, spearheading teams in support of resolving plant issues. Can you create ultimate synergy? Start a new generation. It takes guts to get to glory: becoming a super user in supply chain.
As a Super User, we need you to be superior in achieving supply chain excellence. Your challenge? Providing expert knowledge of JDA WMS software by supporting new users with setting-up personal logins and by offering advanced training to all end users of the software. You’ll be the main contact for WMS users and will be supporting our customer and IT ticket execution. Your goal: ultimate system configuration by ensuring end-to-end functionality according to process and safety requirements.
You raise the bar and better our business by:
- Actively leading JDA software patch deployment, software upgrades, system configuration, UAT and SIT;
- Designing, testing and implementing process improvements;
- Improving your knowledge by acquiring information about emerging functionalities and solutions and implementing them within our business;
- Offering a helping hand to Inventory Management with WMS configuration and stock reconciliations;
Helping all departments and other onsite stakeholders with interfacing requests with JDA WMS software.
Being a Super User requires a flexible character: you’ll be working in a 2-shift pattern, including some weekends and public holidays, and travelling for software release training or supporting facilities.
Anticipate, innovate, generate, and repeat: could this be you?
At syncreon, we have a lean mindset: we adapt and evolve, and love working with demanding customers in our ever-changing business. You know that in order to create greatness, you have to challenge the status quo and come up with ideas that are beyond awesome. You’re well aware of the competitive advantage that speed has and are passionate about the NOW. We’d like you to show us excellent leadership skills and empathy in order to think like our customers. Be candid and truthful, and eliminate complexity.
We highly value experience with UAT/SIT and other software development and enterprise solutions.
