I started my studies in Accounting at EPHEC in 2011. During my bachelor degree, I did an internship of 15 weeks at WinBooks which is a leading accounting software company.
I chose the software way because I had a keen interest in IT and it allowed me to have a different approach to accounting.
After my graduation in 2014, I worked there for almost 7 years. I first started as Support & Quality Control for the Web Application. I had to test the new releases and help customers when they faced an issue with the software. After a few years, I had the opportunity to work on the new Digitalization Tools. It was really interesting to be able to work on these projects which were designed to relieve accountants of manual booking so that they could concentrate on advice and optimization.
I even had the opportunity to lead a small team which was very rewarding.
Besides that, I have also been administrator and treasurer of a non-profit organization (a sports club) for almost 10 years now. I am in charge of the accounting booking and everything related to the treasury.
Despite all the good things that this experience brought me, I felt the need to discover something else, to live a new adventure.
My profile is quite atypical as I have an accounting background but I have never worked as an accountant. So the first question was where I could turn. Did I want to stay in softwares or go back to accounting? I looked at the opportunities in both areas and I found an advert for an IT company looking for a similar profile to mine. At first I didn’t know it was Novutech, a company focused on NetSuite.
After some research and thanks to the various interviews I had during my recruitment process, I was able to get a fairly accurate idea of NetSuite and especially of Novutech.
I was looking for a new challenge and wanted to learn new things. NetSuite could offer me this thanks to the wide range of features that the software offers. It was no longer just about accounting but also about all the flows of a company.
For me, having a pleasant workplace and friendly colleagues is important. I found this in Novutech. The values promoted and the various contacts I had with some people confirmed that Novutech was a company that would suit me.
That is why I joined Novutech in June 2022.
As Business Consultant, I assist the different customers on the functional part of Netsuite. This can be small training sessions, installing and configuring new features or helping them to solve problems they may encounter.
At the beginning, this was not an easy task due to the wide possibilities the software offers. Nevertheless, thanks to my colleagues who are always available, thanks to the knowledge base and documentation that Novutech has set up but also thanks to the documentation provided by NetSuite, I was able to learn and become autonomous very quickly.
At the end of 2022, I started my first implementation project and I’m really looking forward to following the different steps and discovering the Novutech methodology.
As an accountant, I also have a special role in all subjects that are closely related to accounting and finance. Together with my more experienced colleague, we provide recommendations to users on good accounting practices. This covers the management of the chart of accounts, VAT, country-specific requirements and much more. Thanks to him and the different subjects, I learn something new every day. In my previous experience, only Belgian accounting was covered, whereas here we have clients in different countries.
Apart from that, Novutech offers the possibility to spend time on training. I can take language courses and training on the features offered by Netsuite but I was also able to take a training course on Prince 2. This is something really appreciated.
I am really excited about all that I still have to learn and discover at Novutech !
