Technical Account Manager II
Location : Taguig City, Philippines
After key inContact customers have purchased and are implementing our products, the Technical Account Management (TAM) team takes ownership of the customer relationship and becomes their advocate within inContact.
The Technical Account Manager (TAM) begins to engage with the customer before they go live on the contact center platform, and works closely with the customer from that point forward to ensure their success.
Our TAMs are seasoned account management and technical resolution professionals who are at the top of their field and are unified in exceeding customer expectations, improving our processes and technology, and meeting company growth objectives.
The TAM 2 is a very experienced TAM, responsible for resolving complex problems and providing excellent technical and customer service to specific key accounts.
He / she will help them overcome issues that arise, succeed in their business using our technology and services, expand their usage of our products, be a reference to prospective customers, and be a long-term and loyal customer.
The accounts assigned may include any of our paid service packages, where the services of an experienced TAM are expected.
TAM 2s are generally assigned customers with a top-level service package, have high complexity, are high-touch, or are enterprise-level.
Interaction with customers will be done via phone, email, chat and WebEx, with face to face meetings as necessary and / or appropriate.
Travel is more frequent than with other TAMs due to the higher level customers being served and the increased services offered with higher level service packages.
The TAM 2 will work both independently and in concert with Sales, Technical Support, Professional Services and other teams to ensure the highest levels of customer success, providing a collaborative solution that will leave the customer with a positive experience and a product that meets their needs.
