Starting a career in the highly competitive field of information technology can be both daunting and exhilarating. As an undergraduate from IIT campus, I was keen to explore my passion for providing ERP solutions and sought to work with a company that could offer me invaluable insights and hands-on experience in the industry. That's when I stumbled upon inivos, and I can safely say that my decision to join this company in 2022 has been a life-changing one. With a team of industry experts and the guidance of our COO, Ayomi Gunawardena, I have been fortunate enough to receive unparalleled mentorship and direction in pursuing my career aspirations. Join me as I share the unique experiences which I gained at inivos through this blog.
As someone who works in the field of ERP solutions, I have always been confident in my expertise and the solutions we provide to businesses. However, my recent business exploration trip to Omaha, USA was a valuable learning experience that challenged my assumptions and expanded my understanding of the complexities involved in implementing ERP solutions.
Working alongside experienced colleagues, I was able to gain a deeper understanding of our client's unique business processes and the challenges they faced in implementing an ERP solution that met their specific needs. During the first week of our business tour, our team spent a great deal of time analyzing the business processes of a leading company in USA to determine the best course of action for implementation. I soon realized that the client's business requirements presented a complex challenge that required careful consideration and a customized approach.
Despite my initial assumptions, I learned that implementing an ERP solution is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, each business has its own unique requirements, and as ERP solution providers, it is our responsibility to tailor our solutions to fit those needs. We spent countless hours discussing and analyzing the client's needs, and as a team, we worked tirelessly to develop a solution that met those needs.
Although the intensity of our work was demading, we made time to enjoy the local attractions, including a visit to the zoo, aerospace museum, shopping, and watching movies, which helped to further bond our team and enhance our productivity. Overall, my corporate visit to Omaha was an eye-opening experience that not only enhanced my professional knowledge but also allowed me to bond with my colleagues as well.
As a part time student and a professional in the ERP solutions industry, balancing work and personal commitments is a crucial aspect of my daily routine. During the visit to the USA, I not only had to work long hours to provide valuable solutions to our client but also balance my coursework alongside it. Despite these challenges, my colleagues provided their unwavering support, which allowed me to complete my assignments on time and maintain my professional obligations.
I am incredibly grateful for the support and collaboration of my colleagues throughout this experience. Their willingness to assist me in completing my work while also attending to my academic responsibilities was truly invaluable. As a team, we were able to work together seamlessly, leveraging each other's strengths and skills to provide comprehensive solutions that exceeded our client's expectations.
Being a part-time student who is also working as a Junior Functional Consultant in a leading IT company in the industry, I consider myself extremely fortunate to have had the chance to take part in a learning expedition that has proven to be advantageous both personally and professionally. Working alongside experienced colleagues has enriched my knowledge of the ERP solutions industry and has given me valuable hands-on experience in delivering customized solutions that meet the unique needs of each client. I am confident that this opportunity will serve as a solid foundation for my growth as a skilled ERP consultant in the future.
