What is a Technical Account Manager (TAM) and what services do they provide?
Oracle Service Cloud Technical Account Managers
To better serve our customers, the Oracle Service Cloud Support organization has created a team of Technical Account Managers (TAMs) to directly interface with key stakeholders in organizations that have purchased Oracle Cloud Priority Service. The TAM team is comprised of technically-oriented project managers working within the Oracle Service Cloud Technical Suppot group. The TAM team works together with agents and leadership to provide accountability, internal customer advocacy, and customer-focused management across all departments. The TAM acts as the "voice of the customer" within Oracle Service Cloud Technical Support, focusing primarily on effective and efficient technical issue resolution and support. The TAM serves as an escalation contact point for all technical incidents.
Here are the key benefits to having a Technical Account Manager assigned to your organization:
