May Spotlight: Anna Montrastelle
Title: Principal Consultant, Data Conversion
Location: Indianapolis, IN
Been with Collaborative for: 6 months
Why did you choose Collaborative?I chose Collaborative because of the reputation it has in this ecosystem - with both customer success and culture. The data conversion team is a place I can contribute and learn from many brilliant colleagues. Because the culture and tools enable remote work, it made the transition from working in an office to being fully virtual a smooth transition.
What does your day-to-day look like in your role?
My day looks different depending on which phase of a project my clients are in. I may be spending time in meetings providing updates to clients or my teammates on how the data conversion process is going. Other times, I am working directly with client data to build out their cloud-based ERP environment. The end result of a week, from start to finish, could even be successful completion of the transformation of client’s data from their existing HRIS into an initial prototype of their new system.
What do you love about your job?
What I find most energizing about my job is the variety of my responsibilities along with the opportunity to approach projects with my own style. I enjoy coaching customers through what can be an intimidating component of a project. Through each iteration, watching them become more confident in the process of data conversion is a win for both teams.
What does it take to be successful in your role?
To be successful in my role, it is important to be focused on accuracy and efficiency. The amount of time it takes to transform the customer's data can significantly impact the project timeline for the customer. My team works in the nitty gritty details, so it helps to enjoy both the process and the details!
How does Collaborative help you grow as a person and in your career?
At Collaborative, I am able to contribute to a number of initiatives outside of my typical responsibilities. These types of opportunities allow me to exercise my creativity and collaborate with team members I might not otherwise get the chance to work with.
What is your go-to coffee order?
Iced coffee with splash of cream.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be an Orthodontist!
