Rhea Vaz

Implementation Consultant

Systems Design & Fluxx

Key Results

Rhea came to Grantbook with over 3 years of experience in system implementations, specifically ERP implementations, and a strong background in data analysis, data cleansing and preparation. All her previous implementations had one unique distinction; having always been a part of the end-user’s team that is adopting the new system. 

This alternate perspective, is what drew Rhea to her role at Grantbook, as implementation and support specialist. Having  experienced first-hand the excitement, trepidation and requirements evolution that accompany finding the right digital solution, she hopes to be a source of guidance and support that clients can rely upon, with the end goal of delivering a solution that allows them the freedom to focus on real systemic change.

Rhea obtained her Bachelor of Commerce degree in Finance, Operations and Accounting, at McGill University. A highlight during her time at McGill, was successfully attaining a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification, alongside her undergraduate degree, and having the opportunity to utilize key six sigma strategies and techniques to streamline the McGill Bookstore’s inventory management system as part of the certification.
