Enablon, a Wolters Kluwer business, is the world's leading provider of Sustainability, EHS and Operational Risk Management Software. Enablon offers the most comprehensive platform in the industry and is consistently recognized as a global leader and visionary for enabling the sustainable company through technology.

The Software Support Specialist is a member of the Customer Support Services team, who collectively are responsible for sustaining Enablon customers. The Support Specialist provides post-deployment services to enterprise-wide Enablon software solutions for small and large companies.  Enablon is an extremely broad platform with a proprietary programming language, more than a hundred modules, highly configurable, and therefore each customer solution is unique.

The Support Specialist is directly responsible for the qualification and tracking of client requests, and most importantly, providing solutions (expertise, configuration, development, etc.) within the expected response time applicable to the client. He/she also may provide additional support services such as product refreshers and coaching. Some requests are quick wins (configuration/coding on the spot with customers or coaching workshops), but many are mini agile implementation projects, lasting a few weeks to over a month.

The Support Specialist is an independent thinker who understands and does what it takes to have a delighted customer by providing design, configuration development, testing, and expertise services.
