Automate Alignment With Beekeeper’s New SharePoint Integration

When it comes to enabling your frontline workforce, digitalization is essential. Frontline teams need access to SOPs, guidelines and vital health and safety information, wherever they are. They need to be able to access the most up-to-date information in the moment, no matter how often circumstances or best practices are changing. And the best place to access that information is…? You guessed it: mobile devices. 

With this in mind, we’re looking for ways to simplify digital information-sharing from the head office to the front line, starting with a brand new out-of-the-box integration from SharePoint to Beekeeper! 

Automate Alignment for Maximum Agility

As we recover from the COVID-19 crisis, change is the only constant. Your priorities are likely a) to keep your workforce safe, b) to adapt to new requirements and procedures, and c) to ensure your workforce remains well-informed throughout this process. Syncing SharePoint files and folders with Beekeeper’s Document Library will help your workforce stay agile and adapt to the challenges of an uncertain world. 

With Beekeeper’s new SharePoint integration, you can provide a single source of truth for your entire workforce, from the head office to the front line. Update protocols in SharePoint and make them instantly accessible to everyone, everywhere. Add the latest cleaning guidelines to a folder in SharePoint that automatically shares files with frontline cleaning teams. Instant alignment will help your workforce stay up-to-date and agile in the face of constantly-changing requirements. 

A Unified Employee Experience

Beekeeper’s new SharePoint integration helps organizations digitally enable their frontline teams without changing anything for the head office. Simple, fast and cost-effective, you can equip your frontline workforce with all the information they need to keep your business running.

Administrators can share information from the head office’s SharePoint account to a mobile-friendly, easy-to-navigate Document Library for frontline workers with no additional work. Plus, with tools optimized for different contexts, office staff can stick with the intranet they know, and frontline workers can view documents in an app optimized for their needs. 

Integrated IT Saves Time and Money

Beekeeper’s SharePoint integration will also help organizations save time. Frontline workers spend an average of 3 hours per week looking for information — for an organization of 1000, this adds up to millions of dollars wasted each year looking for information! With a digital Document Library, teams can cut down on this wasted time and organizations can save on labor costs by increasing productivity with faster access to the right information. Beekeeper provides a single point of contact for people, information and processes on the front line, helping teams to find what they need fast. 

Beekeeper’s mobile-first Document Library helps companies save hours each week on the front line. With Beekeeper’s new out of the box SharePoint integration, companies can also save time for office-based teams. Normally, desk-based workers need to spend time duplicating and distributing information from SharePoint to the front line. Beekeeper’s SharePoint integration automates this process, so your administrative teams can get more done. 

Digitizing information also helps companies save thousands on printing costs! One Beekeeper customer, Holcim, saved $50,000 by digitizing their employee magazine.  

How Does the SharePoint Integration Work? 

The new SharePoint integration allows companies to synchronize folders and files from SharePoint to Beekeeper’s Document Library. 

It’s as easy as: 

  1. Create a folder in Beekeeper’s Document Library
  2. Select which SharePoint folder(s) you want to mirror in Beekeeper
  3. Set permissions

…files and folders will update automatically when edited in SharePoint, so frontline teams always have access to the most up-to-date information! 

Administrators can select which folders they want mirrored in the Document Library, so some folders will still be reserved for the head office. Administrators can segment access as well, to ensure the right people have access to the right information.
