  • Overview

    With ease of use and customer experience excellence becoming more and more of a differentiating factor, Waters is on a mission to change our culture and processes to drive to superior customer excellence across all of our products, services, and solutions.  While traditional analytical ‘performance’ remains a key attribute increasingly users, require more complete solutions that offer accessibility, dependability and deployability that ultimately deliver differentiated business value.  Many factors are catalyzing these changes in requirements; some examples in the broader business environment include:


    • Deskilling of workforce: Fewer experienced/qualified scientists who are able to effectively adopt/utilize LCMS based solutions 
    • Increasing regulatory requirements (leading to increased need for advanced characterization/analytics) e.g. Increasing rigor required to commercialize therapies, increasing regulation associated with global food commerce

They must have the skill to utilize people and business data to consult with business leaders and address structural, performance, organizational and leadership issues that impact the overall customer experience. They must be able to identify actions that will have a measureable positive impact on business results.  The specialist will also work within the new state of the art Customer Experience Design Center (XDC) to support the customer excellence strategy across all of our products, services and solutions.
