Hi All,

I was wondering what are the job responsibilities of a solutions specialist.

What I have seen is that in some companies sales people are called solutions specialists as they help clients figure out their needs and propose a technical solution. This I believe is different from sale of off the shelf products.

However if my above analysis is correct, then how does a solutions specialist differ from a business analyst or a product manager.

Feel free to advise and guide!

The biggest thing to find out is if the position is for a product company. If so, it is likely a sales type position where you are determining how the vendor's products can solve the customer's problems. It could alternatively be internal where you are figuring out how to solve a problem with a wider range of solution choices.
