What does your day as a Support Consultant look like?
A support consultant is a real puzzler. At Swap Support each day brings new challenges. You act as a source of information and an advisor in the field of Performance Management applications for our clients. For example, you receive questions such as:

– Adjusting complex schedules and reports and making sure that the adjustments go live without problems;
– Transferring knowledge to our juniors to allow them to grow as well;
– Advising clients about the consequences and impact of changes they want to make in the entity design;
– Assisting customers with, for example, the upgrade of their EPM software to a new version;
– Helping customers by analyzing and solving functional issues, such as “We are in the middle of closing and now the report gives incorrect output, what is going on?” or giving advice to our customers on performance issues, such as “Why is my consolidation suddenly taking twice as long?”.

Your life as a Swapper
In many traditional organizations you have little freedom to implement your ideas. Even though they add a lot of value. With us you get not only the freedom to be who you are, but also the freedom to grow. It’s up to you.
