“The Intern Management System helped us immediately streamline end-to-end administration of our summer programme from onboarding to productivity tracking. Each intern got access to a custom, Mourant portal with all the resources they needed including their own ‘schedule’ of daily tasks. Our team also had easy-to-use tools for progress reporting. We are actively expanding how we use this platform for our programme participants next year.”
