Online Mentoring Software Report Issued

Management Mentors offers free thought paper on the benefits to taking a corporate mentoring program online

Chestnut Hill, MA, February 4, 2010 – Management Mentors, a mentoring consulting firm that designs and implements world-class corporate mentoring programs, announced its latest thought paper "Online Corporate Mentoring Software: The 5 Main Benefits." The thought paper will serve as a resource for companies and organizations that are considering a formal mentoring program for the first time or are thinking of introducing online software to an existing program. People can download the white paper for free

"In today's virtual world, an online system makes a lot of sense," says Rene Petrin, president and founder of Management Mentors. He adds, "The right online mentoring software will integrate the interactive human elements of relationships with all the productivity and technical capabilities of the Internet. This combination creates an ideal mentoring relationship that ensures employees the best support network possible for success in their positions."

Petrin points out that an online mentoring system is an up-front investment, but one that will pay for itself in the long run. It's his hope that this white paper, which doesn't tout any one system, even his own, will provide the right support for mentoring advocates to get "buy-in" from upper management and decision makers. "It's important for organizations to do their homework if they're going to invest in online software. Many quality systems exist, but it's important to find the right system for your organization's needs," says Petrin.

Management Mentors' online mentoring software is called MentoringComplete. Because it's a web-based system, it doesn’t require any server set-up or IT involvement on the client-company's end. Designed with mentors, mentorees, and program managers in mind, MentoringComplete can be customized to meet the unique needs of businesses, organizations, and academic institutions. Clients currently using MentoringComplete include Enterprise Holdings, which is the parent company of the well-known Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alamo Rent A Car, and National Car Rental brands; U.S. Fish & Wildlife, Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC); City of Tallahassee; and Bombardier, Inc.
