Career journeys @Oracle Benelux: Francis, Apps Sales Rep

Oracle is organised for success

Today we are discussing working at Oracle with Francis, based in Belgium, and working as an Applications Sales Representative for CRM, ERP and EPM. Francis joined Oracle in 2012 as a Business Development Manager. As of June this year he moved to an Application Sales Representative role focusing on Public Sector, Utilities, Media and Communication in Belgium and Luxembourg. Before joining Oracle he gained multiple years of Sales experience at different IT companies.

Why Application Sales?

What Francis enjoys most about being an Application Sales Representative is the fact you are selling to the decision makers on C-level within a company. This job also gives you the opportunity to see how companies do business and organise themselves and what is going on in the world. You continuously meet very interesting people who have to solve challenging problems and make sure their companies remain successful and achieve the goals they have defined. As an Application Sales Representative you are able to contribute to the success of these companies.

Specialist

Compared to other Sales jobs Francis had in the past, the difference at Oracle is the amount of focus in the job. At Oracle you are responsible for selling a specific set of products within a specific sector. Francis is very positive about this approach. He can take a deep dive into the challenges his customers are facing in their business processes...

Meet Thomas, the Most Innovational person in Oracle Direct EMEA of Q1 by Susan Farrelly

Thomas was voted, by his peers,  the most Innovational person in Oracle Direct EMEA of Q1, the first quarter of this fiscal! Thomas, a Business Development Consultant at Oracle Direct’s Applications Team, taught himself how to use and leverage the power of social engagement consistent with Oracle’s Social Media Policy.  From these learning's he provided both his and other applications teams in Dublin with huge amounts of training and has presented his findings to the teams on more than one occasion. It is important to recognise that this isn't just a great idea....it actually works! The results speak for themselves. Thomas is engaging with customers and prospects via their preferred channel of communication and creating a strong personal social brand.

We congratulate Thomas for his efforts of raising Social Media to the next level within Business Development Group. He put a lot of work into Social Selling, as one of the first within the BDG and set the example for a new innovative approach on how to sell anno 2013. He deserves to be recognized for this.

His contribution to social media has been a great inspiration for all Business Development Consultants or Business Relationship Consultants. He knows what he talks about and has great conversion rates out of his social media campaigns. And he doesn't mind sharing his knowledge with everybody...
