An overview of the opportunity...

The Software Helpdesk provides both telephone and remote support to OGL’s software customer base.  Support can vary between low end user queries to complex programming issues and the role of the 1st Line Support Advisor is to be the first point of contact when raising a support call.

The software solution, prof.ITplus, is an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) application, which both manages and supports the business operation and its associated processes through its modular structure, offering core modules such as sales order processing, stock management, customer relationship management, financials and company reporting. prof.ITplus offers incredible control, insights and opportunities to the businesses that use it.

Typical customers have around 10-15 software users who will all have differing functions to perform using the prof.ITplus application and its associated products such as Business Intelligence, Warehouse Management and Sales Intelligence.

You may be currently working in an Accounts Office or a purchase / sales order processing environment and looking to progress your career, if this is the case then this could be the new challenge you have been waiting for.

What you should expect…
