March 24, 2023 / WorkJam Blog

As digital frontline communication and collaboration tools become increasingly important for businesses in today’s fast-paced work environment, companies are looking to improve employee engagement and boost employee retention with Beekeeper, WorkJam and the other solutions in the market. WorkJam is taking a deeper dive into the digital frontline workplace landscape to help decision makers understand the key differentiators between the various options, and how WorkJam has become known as the leader in the space.

WorkJam and Beekeeper are two popular digital frontline tools that offer businesses a range of functionalities to connect with their hourly and non-desk workforce.

While both products offer similar features, WorkJam stands out as a more comprehensive and powerful solution for businesses.  In this blog post, we will discuss the top 10 ways WorkJam’s complete solution, referred to as Workforce Orchestration®, outperforms Beekeeper’s digital frontline technology.

  1. Shift Bidding: WorkJam’s shift bidding feature allows frontline employees to request, swap, and pick up shifts in real-time, reducing scheduling conflicts and increasing employee satisfaction. Shifts can be covered in an instant across locations, amplifying your reach and multiplying your staffing possibilities. WorkJam offers employees 5 ways to manage their own shifts, while Beekeeper lacks advanced shift-swapping functionality.
  2. Compliance: WorkJam offers compliance training and certification, ensuring that employees are trained and up to date on industry regulations and company policies. This helps businesses avoid costly penalties and legal issues.
  3. Customization: WorkJam allows businesses to fully customize their platform to meet their unique needs, branding, and culture. With WorkJam, companies can create their own branded mobile app, customize workflows, and automate processes to streamline their operations.
  4. Task Management: WorkJam’s task management solution allows businesses to create and assign tasks to employees, track their progress, and ensure that they are completed on time. Easily assign tasks to team members, attach files, instant approval process and more. This feature is not available on Beekeeper.
  5. Mobile App: WorkJam’s super app provides frontline employees with easy access to schedules, tasks, communication, and training materials.
  6. Onboarding & Retention: WorkJam offers a comprehensive onboarding experience, which includes customizable training modules and coaching. This ensures that new hires are properly trained and integrated into the company culture. Beekeeper’s training functionalities are limited compared to WorkJam.
  7. Analytics: WorkJam provides real-time analytics and reporting, allowing businesses to monitor employee performance, identify areas for improvement, and make data-driven decisions. Beekeeper’s analytics capabilities are limited.
  8. Integrations: WorkJam integrates with a variety of third-party platforms, including payroll, HR, and point-of-sale systems. Integrated systems can include Microsoft Teams, Reflexis, Zebra, Workplace, UKG, Blue Yonder, Aware, VMWare, Salesforce, etc. This allows businesses to streamline their operations and improve efficiency. Beekeeper has limited integration capabilities.
  9. Compliance Automation: WorkJam’s compliance automation feature ensures that employees are reminded of training and certification deadlines, reducing the risk of non-compliance. Beekeeper does not offer this functionality.
  10. Support: WorkJam provides 24/7 support to businesses and frontline employees, ensuring that issues are resolved quickly and efficiently. Beekeeper’s support is limited to business hours.

    In conclusion, while companies are looking to improve employee engagement and boost employee retention with Beekeeper and WorkJam, we have seen that although they offer similar features, WorkJam’s complete digital frontline workplace, comprehensive functionality, and analytics capabilities make it a more powerful solution for businesses. Its shift bidding, compliance training, task management, mobile app, and integration capabilities make it a must-have for businesses looking to create happy and engaged employees for higher productivity.
