In charge of multiple teams, a service manager ensures that departmental and sales goals are met, and that their team members possess the necessary product and service knowledge to carry out tasks effectively. They will also need to know industry regulations, constraints, and laws for compliance. A service manager also assists with administrative tasks, prepares reports on the levels of customer service achieved, and pinpoints areas for improvement.
Sales managers are tasked with selling a company’s products or services. They work within the commercial department of an organization, reporting to an area manager or sales director, and acting as the organization’s point of contact with clients. Sales managers set targets for clients, develop new business, create and implement sales plans, coordinate with other departments to ensure timely product delivery, negotiate prices, and create and implement sales actions for sell-out.
Product managers work within the marketing department of an organization. They are in charge of the marketing actions of a specific product or product line, ensuring that it meets pre-established objectives set by management within a predetermined budget. Their tasks include tracking market share, creating and implementing brand actions, including promotional campaigns, reviewing market research and reporting, among others.
Purchasing managers are responsible for creating and executing purchasing strategies within an organization.
