by | October 22, 2019

This month’s meet the team section welcomes Ann Jenkins, Account Manager. Ann is passionate about working with different clients from different industries. In her spare time, she spends time with her cockapoo Bentley and loves all things vintage and a good bargain.

1. Tell us about your time/journey in Xoomworks 

I have been with Xoomworks for 3 years and time really has flown by! My role as Account Manager means that I have had the pleasure of meeting most of our existing Xoomworks customers. Some customers have been with us since the start of Xoomworks. Others have joined recently, in fact over the last 12 months we have added more clients than any other year. So, this combination of new and old clients keeps me very busy.

2. What do you like most about working at Xoomworks? 

I love working at Xoomworks because of the variety of services we offer. Also, it is very rewarding to see how far many of our customers have come in developing their procurement strategy and activities, especially where we have had the opportunity to assist in this transformation journey.

I have also really enjoyed feeding back the findings from our XoomTune Optimisation report. As an Account Manager this is such a valuable tool in helping support customers, to get continued and increased success from their procurement tools.

Finally, and probably most importantly, I really like the people I work with which helps a lot!

3. Are there any projects that you are particularly fond of? 

There are so many that I am not going to name names, however, one thing they all have in common is that they have embraced us as part of their team and also enjoy our ‘One Team’ approach.  It is great when we can provide additional support to customers after the initial project. I am now involved in renewing a number of my customers contracts for Service Desk and Release Management for the third year running!  This is very rewarding as it shows the great service that is being offered by the team in Cluj.

4. What are your hobbies? What do you like doing in your free time? 

I enjoy all things vintage and a bargain.  I love looking around antique fairs, car boots and junk shops.  I have been renovating my house for over a year and many of my finds now have pride of place in my house. Also I enjoy travelling, but lately I have been doing more close to home travel, in my VW campervan so I can take my little cockerpoo Bentley. He is still very young and full of energy, which is helping me get a little fitter.
