Key Responsibilities and Specific Accountabilities:

Technical Specification Review

The AE is responsible for reviewing a customer’s technical specifications to both determine the best solution that the company can offer while meeting all requirements and identify those items that deviate from the company’s offering.  The AE is also responsible for working with vendors regarding buyout items that also need to meet the customer-supplied specifications. 

Commercial Terms & Conditions Review

With assistance from the Finance group, as necessary, review commercial terms and conditions submitted in the Request for Quote (RFQ) packages and identify items that deviate from the company’s standard offering. 


Product Selection

After review of technical specifications, it will be the AE’s responsibility to use the information available in the RFQ (request for quote) package to make the product selection. 

Proposal Preparation

Once the specifications have been reviewed and the appropriate equipment has been selected, the AE will be responsible for preparing and submitting the formal quotations in a timely manner.  Quote preparation will include working with the product managers, sub-vendors, and outside sales personnel to determine the appropriate pricing and terms required.

Order Entry

Once an order is received, the AE is responsible to enter the order into the ERP system in an expeditious manner.  Order entry needs to be done accurately and thoroughly such that any other department who sees the order will be able to see all pertinent details.  The AE will also be responsible to work directly with other departments to resolve any unforeseen issues that come up.
