Introducing: Tjitse Jousma
Focus Enterprise Solutions is a new label within the Broad Horizon group. We would like to introduce ourselves on the basis of a number of interviews. Today an interview with Tjitse Jousma, Business Development Manager.
Who are you and what is your position?
My name is Tjitse Jousma and I live with my girlfriend and dog in Hooglanderveen. I have done several studies in the direction of hospitality and event management. In my spare time I like to do fun things with my girlfriend such as city trips and walking in the forest. I am also busy with sports such as Strength Training and MMA. At Focus Enterprise Solutions I work as a Business Development Manager. I am mainly concerned with bringing in new customers and maintaining existing relationships. At previous employers I have had a similar role but always commercially.
What does an average working day look like for you?
It’s never the same. Every day is different because you are often busy with different activities. I start every day with a good double espresso and then check my laptop to see what new mails and updates have come in. Every day it can differ what I do, one day I am on my way to 2 different appointments in the Netherlands to talk about a new ERP system and the other day I work from the office to prepare a demo together with colleagues. Or I work together with a colleague on the preparations for presenting a webinar.
If you want to be part of a fast-growing and dynamic company, Focus Enterprise Solutions is the place for you.
What do you think about us now being Focus Enterprise Solutions?
I think we have made a nice step with the Dynamics 365 Finance & SCM [Supply Chain Management] team! The biggest change for me is that we now have more focus on a number of solutions and that we have become a smaller personal company that is still part of the large Broad Horizon family. I started working at Broad Horizon Solutions at the time because I got the opportunity to continue to develop myself and there is room to come up with ideas, how certain things can be done differently in the organization. The same is now at Focus Enterprise Solutions, so I’m still glad I made this move at the time.
What type of clients do you deal with at work?
These can be large well-known retailers but also international companies. It is very diverse. Sometimes it is an SME plus customer and you talk directly to the CEO and other times it can be a large international company and you first talk to IT manager and CFO of the company. I like that the most about my job, it is diverse and you switch with many different companies and people.
How do you ensure that your knowledge remains up to date?
I follow a lot of online webinars that have to do with our focus areas, on average there are 1 to 2 per month. In addition, as Sales we also do online training courses such as a number of Microsoft training courses that you can follow so that you can understand / help the customer even better and that can help you in your daily work. We can do this during working hours. There is also a possibility to follow separate courses that match your work, so that you can continue to develop yourself. There are also many options and possibilities for opportunities at Focus Enterprise Solutions.
We are a small company within a large family. You have many beautiful well-known customers and you work with a super ambitious team in Focus Enterprise Solutions.
Where do you think we will be as a company in 5 years?
That we are known as a company that´s being involved with customers and that we contribute to a joint bright future with our customers and partners. That we are a partner who not only supports you during an implementation but who wants to grow together with you!
Why should anyone join Focus Enterprise Solutions?
If you want to be part of a fast-growing and dynamic company, Focus Enterprise Solutions is the place for you. In addition, you will work with the latest Cloud technologies in the field of Dynamics 365, Azure and the Power platform. We are a small company within a large family.
