Effective operational communication in times of crisis

Beekeeper App

Effective operational communication in times of crisis.

Communication is crucial during the COVID-19 crisis. The Beekeeper app is here to help.

The coronavirus crisis has an enormous impact on everyday working life. It is absolutely vital that you communicate with your employees promptly and in an appropriate manner. This is true for frontline specialists in healthcare and retail as well as for production, service and logistics staff. They all have limited access to traditional communication methods such as email or to a computer. Being able to reach all employees fast is a key priority, particularly in the current COVID-19 situation.
