Beekeeper as Community Management Tool

Pros

easy communication with different groups. Very efficient. Good user experience.

Cons

Focused on communication with a community but more difficult to combine with more functionalities which leads to use of more than one application.

Communicate, don't just speak at people!

I'm a company with employees that are in the field and using their email addresses was not working in terms of sending them communication.

Pros

The data I can obtain from the engagement and communication interactions my employees are having. The way I can easily track communication via the campaigns. The way my team is now more productive and engaged, and how that has affected my productivity and lowered my employee turnover.

Cons

I can't say there's anything I didn't like!

Great tool, Beekeeper Review

The application could include tool as live video or an option for video calls within the chat. In addition, integrating metrics where the administrator could do a better monitoring of the performance of the platform.

Pros

Excellent application, the platform is easy to use and intuitive for the user. Is close to known platforms which makes it very effective. Good internal communication tool that has helped to establish a multidirectional communication within the company. Also, the customer service provided by the costumer success manager has been pretty good, and they are always available to solve any doubt or inconvenient.

Cons

Very good as far as user concerned, but from the manager’s point of view there are metrics whose function is unknown.

Beekeeper - a good tool for fast and easy communication

We are a Consulting Company: - We use Beekeeper mainly for our sales process (Lead Management) - Fast Information to all colleagues in the case of a request of a customer - Everybody is informed and has the opportunity to contribute with ideas or support in establishing offers for the customer - We use Beekeeper for general information for all employees (no need for an intranet anymore) - we dramatically reduced the amount of e-mails to inform the team or request support for the proposal process - As most people are used to communicate with WA - there is no need to train the people with Beekeeper, because it is extremly easy to use

Pros

+ Easy tool (like WA) for employees travelling and working at different location.
+ Easy to use
+ Reduces amount of e-mails needed

Cons

- there are no major issues with Beekeeper

Super app with easy and fast ways to communicate

- Improvement of internal and interdepartmental communication - Fast communication - We were able to stop using private apps (such as WhatsApp) for business content

Pros

- Easy to use
- Many ways of communication within the app
- The use of labels to find messages

Cons

- That there ist no possibility to insert pictures in the comments
- It would be great if there was an internal calendar (for example, as a separate stream) on which each Beekeeper user could access and even appoint appointments.

Beekeeper brings our people together in a simple way

We always had to problem to reach all our employees because not everyone has access to a computer. But everyone has a smartphone... We try to move all the chats from unsecure apps like Whatsapp to Beekeeper, but that's still a process.

Pros

It's very easy to use and the basic funktioalities are working perfectly well.
You can use Beekeeper on a smartphone as well as on a computer, that's very convenient. And the backend/dashboard is very easy to understand. Good analytics and functionalities like the worker bees or campaigns are very useful.

Cons

Sometimes it's a bit slow, f.e. the search function. And we miss some small things like to be able to download videos from posts. But that's "peanuts".

Response from Beekeeper of Beekeeper

Replied October 2018

Many thanks for your feedback, dear Nadine. That's great that with Beekeeper you now easily reach also your non-desk workers. If you need best practice inspiration about how to encourage all your employees to move from Whatsapp to the secure Beekeeper Chats, please feel free to contact your customer success manager.

Finally reaching out to our offsite staff...

Benefits: Easier and more efficient communication, certainly more engaged and informed employees...

Pros

Beekeeper finally allowed us to reach out to our entire workforce, many of which are offsite and only occasionally in office locations. The days of time consuming phone calls to ensure everyone is aware of certain information are gone...
With the support of the Beekeeper project team we were able to streamline our communication process and can now timely communicate internal announcements, customer feedbacks or upcoming events, amongst other...
We look forward to push this to the next level for us, further integrating with existing applications and channeling remaining legacy communication through the beekeeper app.

Cons

We would like to see more functionality around formatting steams (bold, embedded links...) to make information more appealing to our employees. Further did we state the need to sync uploaded documents with a local document store / drive...

Thanks a lot for your review and your feedback which is highly appreciated. We are happy to hear that with Beekeeper you save time and communicate more efficiently.

We will gladly inform you as soon as formatting and document syncs are on the closer roadmap.

fastest communication for companies with shopfloor

App is very easy to use. Some Employees don't know these kind of "buttom-up communication", therefore they are very "reserved" at the beginning.

Pros

Design is simple, intuitive and onboarding is very easy. Dashboard provides a good overview of all activities.

Cons

Almost nothing to remark. Dashboard is not designed for mobile equipment (phnones. tablets).

Easy Allan's great support

Pros

Beekeeper is a user friendly app. Easy to use. However the key is the support and the training that offers the software.
It helped me a lot to understand and master the usage of this tool.

Cons

As an organised person I always seek for calendars or agendas.
I think adding it to this tool would improve the productivity.

MM Chat at MediaMarkt

The cross-company communication among employees has changed positively thanks Beekeeper.

Pros

I really like the App and the ability to chat with every employee in the company, because you don't necessarily need an e-mail account. The functions are very simple and self-explanatory.

Cons

I would like to share more documents with other employees (like share-point).

Beekeeper gives everybody access to all information

With Beekeeper we could solve the "communication problem" because now every employee has the possibility to connect himself/herself with other employees from different locations.

Pros

Beekeeper is very helpful for our organisation and invitation of internal trainings as well as for the improvement of the communication between all our employees.

Cons

In general there is nothing we don't like. There are sometimes features which can be improved but the product management of Beekeeper takes care of those issues.
