Jason Wang is a Principal Consultant and Support Lead at Aquitas Solutions. Known for being able to solve anything, Jason is a jack of all trades.
JASON’S INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE
In 2003, Jason graduated from Georgia Tech with an Industrial Engineering degree. This field of study deals with looking at systems and processes to determine the most optimal ways to run an operation. Jason started out working with Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS), now referred to as Enterprise Asset Management (EAM).
With over 14 years of Maximo consulting experience, Jason is a bit of an anomaly in that he has never had to “turn a wrench”. Despite this, Jason has had many mentors throughout his career who have that more traditional maintenance background that have helped guide him to the point where he is today. He is able to translate the Maximo software solution to the needs of his clients and discuss issues in a way that relates to the customer as if he has had traditional field experience.
BECOMING THE ‘GO-TO’ SUPPORT GUY
Jason initially joined Aquitas as a Functional Consultant in 2008. Most of the work he did dealt with identifying business requirements, applying them to the customer business processes and then configuring systems to meet those needs. Eventually Jason dove into the technical side as well, with the intent to understand all the facets of Maximo.
Coming to understand a little bit of everything, Jason became known as a jack of all trades. CEO, Wayne Brisson saw the value in Jason’s ability and offered him a new role to manage Aquitas’ Maximo Support organization. Jason can solve almost any problem our customers bring to him, and if he can’t solve the problem he has been in the industry long enough that he knows the right person who can.
THE EVOLVING CHALLENGES OF MAXIMO SUPPORT
When working with clients, Jason enjoys being able to answer unique and challenging questions that change depending on the day or the client. He also gets to build up relationships with customers in a way he would not be able to if he were working for a larger company.
Lately, he has found more instances where clients are requesting assistance with integration issues. Many clients today want to dip their toe into the EAM world, but expect all the bells and whistles to automatically match their business needs, especially where Maximo integrates with other systems. As part of Support, Jason works with these clients to understand their business process, and come up with configuration and integration plans to make sure their Maximo system is successful in talking to those systems.
WHY AQUITAS FOR JASON?
Getting to work with good people, who are genuinely talented and knowledgeable, is the reason he has stayed with the company for over a decade.
