RMS Implementation Specialist – Asia Pacific, IRN & Transitions at FactSet Research Systems

Hong Kong, HKG
RMS Implementation Specialist – Asia Pacific, IRN & Transitions
Location: Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo

Business Overview

The Internal Research Notes (IRN) product continues to be the center of our Research Management Solutions and has seen tremendous growth and adaption from clients across the world across multiple user-types.
With recent key wins across clients, for example, GIC in Singapore, along with growth in new clients across the region and a strong pipeline, we believe it is the right time to start building an IRN focused team in Asia Pacific. This team will be responsible for growing the IRN business and collaborating with account teams to manage the $2m book we have of existing clients. The goal is to increase the visibility of IRN in the market and make it a critical component of the overall enterprise pitch.
Additionally, one of the key strategic objectives within the RMS team is the integration of Code Red to the IRN product. Working closely with teams across PD, Sales, Consulting, and Engineering, this new position will be responsible for the execution of these transitions. In Asia-Pac we have two clients that are currently on Code Red, NUS and Bosvalen. Both clients have been ear-marked as possible IRN migrations. Transitioning these clients over to IRN has the possibility to open further opportunities for other FactSet products.

A newly formed IRN & Transition Client Solution team has been created to help support our efforts and focus on our IRN business and migrating clients from Code Red to IRN.
We are looking for an individual to take on a Lead Specialist position to work closely with sales to implement new IRN clients across the region and helping account teams to maximize the usage of IRN across the existing client base.
This role is ideal for someone to take the next step in their careers and join a newly formed dynamic team. The role comes with immediate ownership on a product that has huge growth potential in Asia Pacific. You can be the individual that plays an influential role in this growth.
