Q&A with Silvan

New IBT Oracle NetSuite Functional Implementation Consultant

We recently did a rapid-fire Q&A session with Silvan to help you get to know the newest face behind IBT’s Oracle NetSuite implementations, customisations and support.

Silvan joins us after 3 years as a NetSuite Administrator (and before that as an SAP Consultant in Germany) in his adopted hometown of Brisbane.

His addition to our team means we’ll be able to service our clients face to face even more frequently – particularly QLD as Silvan is Brisbane based. An immediate extra help for our manufacturing and wholesale distribution customers is on the functional side of the business, particularly around procurement and planning.
