The roll

Customer contact
In your role as technical project manager, you manage the entire process from quotation to service provision. The account manager has the first customer contact, after which you take over the process when the quotation becomes an order. You serve customers who have knowledge of industrial electronics and the contact persons within the companies vary from technicians to buyers. You work on both new products and high-tech solutions for existing products.

After transfer by the account manager, you work out the detailed specifications and make a schedule. You discuss the working method, prices and delivery times with the customer. You work on multiple projects simultaneously, varying in size. With regard to customer wishes, you take feasibility and production options into account.

Innovative production process 
You like to ensure that processes run smoothly and ensure that you provide the correct information in advance. You are the 'spider in the web' to ensure that drawings are complete, the customer is informed of the progress and you coordinate with production to safeguard the process. Drawings are made by the engineers and you are able to check them for completeness. If there are technical issues, you ensure that you get the right people at the table, such as the customer, account manager, KAM department or production employees. You coordinate meetings and inventory and act on risks, impact and costs. Before organizing a meeting, first do your own research by checking the specifications, the bill of materials and design files and checking whether the correct components have been used. Variass distinguishes itself by a high degree of investment in innovation and digitalization, making innovative tools and data available for you to optimize projects.

You then complete the assignment for the customer by drawing up a production report, sending a report to the customer and providing after-sales technical support.
