Very large company with several sub-businesses
After Sales Co-Ordinator (Former Employee) – Durban, ZN – 29 April 2014
Very well managed company, utilising SAP as an operating programme
I used my Excel and Word abilities to a very large degree whilst in this company, drawing up budget forecasts, trends and achievements, pivot tables to monitor turnovers in various categories of the business and preparing service contracts for the team of reps for whom I offered a support function
Also arranged Customer Days which would include the invitations, creation of presentation documentation, CD's etc as well as arranging for the venue, catering etc..
I was fortunate enough to be involved in not only the earthmoving plant side of the business (i.e. Caterpillar Backhoe Loaders, Excavators, Off Highway Trucks, Graders, etc etc) but also in the Marine and Industrial Engine side of the business, which was a relatively new area of the business in Durban, and which I was involed in from its inception there about two years prior to my emigrating to Australia
Very fortunate to have worked with very dynamic and responsible people with excellent work ethics.
Stable company with good performance incentives
Some unrealistic targets set at times but nothing really major
