We needed a platform that could do the heavy lifting for us.

The Society of Petroleum Engineers’ eMentoring Program gives members a way to contribute to the oil and gas E&P sector by sharing industry insights and practical career advice. With over 164,000 association members, SPE needed software to scale its program and lower administration time.
