Beekeeper added new capabilities to its mobile-first platform, Beekeeper’s Frontline Success System.

Founded in 2012, Beekeeper aims to serve frontline employees and organizations by providing digital solutions that can automate businesses processes and communications from any location.

“The disconnect between employers and their frontline employees is at an all-time high, causing staff shortages and burnout that comes at a hefty economic price,” said Beekeeper co-founder and CEO Cristian Grossmann.

The new products include a workspace for frontline employees, referrals, onboarding and safety management. The company said the frontline workspace aims to improve the accessibility of employee services, communications, collaboration and productivity. 

Beekeeper’s referrals solution allows employers to collect, track and reward employees for referrals they make, which in turn will help companies fill positions, retain employees and lower recruitment costs.

On top of that, the onboarding capabilities automate the process of bringing on new employees more quickly and at a lower cost, Beekeeper said. As for safety management, the platform now includes safety training, accident prevention, accident reporting and safety metrics.

Increased Funding

The enhancements come just after the company raised $50 million in Series C funding, from new investors EGS Beteiligungen and Kreos Capital alongside existing investors Energize, Thayer, SwissCanto, Keen Ventures, Alpana Ventures, Edenred Capital and Verve Ventures. This round brings the company’s total funding to more than $100 million to date.

“More than 80% of the global workforce are deskless workers, and as digitization scales and transforms nearly every sector of the economy, there is increasing demand to connect and enable frontline workers with new technologies,” said Energize Ventures Partner Juan Muldoon.

Beekeeper plans to use the funding to continue to invest in product development. The company has also grown its team — including with additions to the executive suite — and plans to continue its hiring.
