If you have a passion for ERP systems in the area of maintenance and gain satisfaction from driving technical and process improvements that benefit the business, you may be the person our team needs. As ICT Business Application Analyst – EAM, your primary responsibility will be the support and enhancement of planned maintenance processes in AMOS Business Suite, in combination with our Microsoft Dynamics AX environment. You will also play a key role in the selection process and implementation of our next-level EAM system, replacing AMOS Business Suite.  

As part of a team of ICT specialists, you will support our Vroon employees by:

You aim to ensure a timely resolution of any reported issues and strive for efficient implementation of changes. Your professional relationship with all key business stakeholders guarantees a correct prioritisation of new requests and optimal value delivery.

An important project for the ICT team in the coming years is development and implementation of a cloud strategy for the company. This is likely to be based on Microsoft products, such as Office365 and Azure, in combination with MS Dynamics365 and other SaaS-based applications.
