They will be expected to answer questions that range from the functional through to the technical and be able to demonstrate an in-depth knowledge of the software suite. In this way, the aim is that the pre-sales consultant will be able to answer any question a prospective client may wish to raise about the software. They are expected to explore scenarios and be ready to position the strengths of the solution in comparison to competing products. They need to ensure they understand what the software can do in detail and for what reason, to not only match the prospective client’s current needs, but their ultimate goals as well. Pre-sales consultants are known as ‘sales support’ and need to be ready to advise where required. They will manage much of the implementation and be a key resource for any follow-up.
