The Commonwealth Office of Technology (COT) is committed to providing quality customer service. To this end, communication between COT and agencies is essential. Business Relationship Managers (BRMs) are available to assist agencies in using technology to achieve business goals. With communication as their primary focus, BRMs both promote COT services and serve as agency advocates.
As customer advocates, they understand the functions and responsibilities of their customer agencies and work to increase our employees' knowledge of each agencies' needs. Having extensive COT knowledge, they assist agencies in understanding how to meet business needs by leveraging relevant COT services and are empowered to facilitate issue resolutions. BRMs will also reach out to foster future partnerships with potential customers.
This partnership provides COT valuable business insight that promotes a better understanding of our customers' current and future needs.
