Key Account Manager Existing Business

Dirty tricks to reach your targets? Nope, that's not something we do here. Of course you have individual targets and strive for the highest achievable, but this goes hand in hand with constructive cooperation within the team.


As Key Account Manager Existing Business, your main focus is to build a lasting relationship with our existing customers in the Netherlands.

How? By identifying and capitalizing on opportunities for Planon's Software (IWMS) suite with these existing clients. As Key Account Manager, you are primarily responsible for a healthy customer relationship. This means, you know what's going on and where their needs lie in relation to using Planon. You take these needs back to the organization and together with colleagues and experts in the various disciplines, you formulate an appropriate response to them.
In this way, you create added value for the customer, increase customer satisfaction and get the maximum return from the customer portfolio with the sale of software, SaaS and services.

Remco (Key Account Manager): 'Innovation and creativity; that is what makes my job interesting. It is very much appreciated that I am proactive in coming up with improvements and new ideas. I test these in practice and if they are successful, I then introduce them to other customers.'

You are on the road every day; one day you spend on location at our customers, the next day you work at Planon's office or at home. So you are very flexible in arranging your schedule.

You successfully fulfil your role not only by achieving your sales targets (focused on software, Saas and services), but also by:

  • Creating and implementing your sales and account plans;
  • Ensuring high customer satisfaction and transforming satisfied customers into ambassadors for Planon;
  • Creating sales opportunities and upsell to your accounts (through software, services, support and training);
  • Giving presentations and demos at customers (in cooperation with pre-sales).
