Are you always interested in finding new solutions? Manage our clients by bringing a fresh perspective to our business and help our clients evolve.


Keeping a keen eye on our clients’ evolution: your job

The TMS team is jointly responsible for its own qualitative and quantitative objectives with primary customer focus for optimal customer satisfaction.


Among other things, you realize interfaces with third-party systems and adaptations of Planon Business logic, and you are familiar with functional and technical designs.

No matter whether you’re working on site with a client or remotely from our Mechelen office or at home, flexibility is crucial. Travel is part of the job – most days you’ll be spending at our clients’ offices, while on other days you’ll be working in the office or at home.


You successfully fulfill your role by:

  • making tailor-made solutions for and at our clients;
  • reporting on qualitative and quantitative objectives of projects and assignments to the Planon Project Manager and our client;
  • achieving personal qualitative and quantitative targets;
  • supporting sales during the sales process;
  • supporting the project team during the implementation of the software;
  • actively following developments in the field and indicating market trends and sharing these with you colleagues;
  • contribute to the quality and improvement of the Planon product;
  • coordination and managing TMS colleagues at other Planon locations.
