It is cool and comfortable weather.
As a presales engineer, I work with sales people and am mainly in charge of technical area. I don’t usually handle sales tasks such as estimating costs and processing order sheets, but today I confronted a situation where I should take care of some of them.
Today a sales person with whom I work for a sales opportunity, took a vacation leave, but the partner for this matter submitted an order sheet and asked us to ship the products as soon as possible. Because I am the one who knows the background of the business, I had to contact the partner to ask about the order detail and negotiate on the shipping date.
These kind of tasks are the ones I had never experienced, so I was confused conducting them. It was surely a good opportunity to know the work of sales people, but I don’t want to do that again. (Because it seemed a kind of boring clerical work.)
