This round of investment validates Beekeeper's mission to tackle this disconnect and overcome the crippling status quo it creates. Our mobile-first, frontline success system connects workers to the people, processes, and information they need to be productive, engaged, and safe at work. This new way of working gives our customers an unmatched competitive advantage during challenging times." Cristian Grossmann, Beekeeper Co-Founder, and CEO
