An Intern’s Experience with Intellect
Blog: Interneer blog
I joined Interneer as a summer Sales Development intern on May 21st. A local college student at USC, I was to be responsible for identifying and creating new qualified sales opportunities for Account Executives, and spent my first few days on the job simply trying to comprehend what exactly the broad Business Process Management (BPM) field encompasses.
After a few hours (quickly days) of reading
whitepapers and watching demos of Interneer’s Intellect platform given to potential customers, I finally had a simplistic understanding of BPM. In order to sell Intellect, however, I wanted to be able to direct customers to specific abilities that were unique to Interneer’s offering.
My need for differentiators led to my request for a live test site on June 13th, a Friday, at around 4 PM. The test site would allow me to build apps and automate workflows as if I were an Interneer customer.
By 5:01 PM, about an hour later, the first entry in a job application app I had built was present. While it wasn’t revolutionary, my job application automation program was built in less than an hour, and accepted responses instantly when completed. Hypothetical applicants were automatically assigned random application numbers for reference purposes, and could upload resumes, provide links to LinkedIn profiles, and mention a point of reference within the company.
I was surprised at my ease in leveraging some of Intellect’s more impressive capabilities, such as automatically populating the list of options for the applicant’s point of reference with current Interneer employees in the company system.
Just an hour after receiving login credentials to my live test site, I, a summer sales intern who arrived void of knowledge as to what BPM was, yet alone how to implement it, was already able build a basic app. The only training I had received prior to my endeavor was gathered simply by listening in on past demos, which are publicly available for viewing on Interneer’s website (here), that were given to potential customers.
Interneer markets itself as the BPM for the business analyst, and I could not agree with this more. Who better to have build apps than the people who will use them and understand what they want out of them? Clearly, my case demonstrates the ease of picking up the platform. If a steep learning curve is a source of hesitation for business analysts, I can, and will testify that building, and learning to build, applications using Intellect is intuitive, and dare I say it, fun.
