Additionally, this team works closely with the Application Engineer and Sales teams in other regions to drive customer success with our US Headquartered Global Customers with sites outside the Americas.
The team also leverages their close connection with the customer to provide a vital conduit back to the R&D and Product Engineering teams.
This feedback provides valuable insight for these groups from our customers and influences our future product roadmap.
