Case Study: Holcim Switzerland and Italy

“Beekeeper contributes to digital literacy and lessens anxieties around use of digital communication tools.”

Holcim (Schweiz) AG, a subsidiary of the worldwide LafargeHolcim Group Ltd, is a leading building materials and solutions provider. The company provides cement, aggregates, and ready-mix concrete for a wide range of applications including infrastructure, commercial, and residential construction projects.

Holcim Switzerland & Italy, a subsidiary of LafargeHolcim, needed communication tools for operations management primarily in their manufacturing plants, quarries, and office service areas to connect ~1,500 workers. The company needed a way to distribute corporate communications and align local Holcim communities into one online community. 

This case study reveals how Holcim used the Beekeeper employee app to:

  • Reduce printing costs by $50,000  
  • Better connect manufacturing plant activities and remote worksite updates 
  • Improve communication between linguistically and geographically dispersed teams with Beekeeper’s inline translation feature
