New York, Nov. 12, 2018 — Beekeeper, the leading communication and employee operations platform for connecting a hotel's non-desk workers across locations and departments, earned the top honor here yesterday during HX. Beekeeper was one of five finalists competing in the Tech Pitch innovation challenge that recognizes companies that stand out from the crowd to help reimagine the hospitality industry. This is the third top technology honor presented to company in 2018; Beekeeper was named the Most Innovative Technology of 2018 by HTNG and it was awarded the HITEC 2018 E20X "People's Choice 2018" by HFTP.

Judging the competition on Sunday, Nov. 11, was Valerie Ferguson, Regional General Manager, Walt Disney Co.; Are Morch, Hotel Blogger and Social Media Consultant; Gregory J Pesik, Managing Director, Applied Intelligence, Accenture; and Vijay Dandapani, President & CEO, HANYC. Beekeeper had five minutes to present on the HX Tech stage in the Marketplace to these thought leaders and a packed theater of interested HX attendees.

Beekeeper connects colleagues across locations and departments in real time via mobile or desktop devices. The platform includes an intelligent analytics dashboard to help companies improve internal communication and streamline business processes. Secure, automated, and relevant information is readily distributed, searchable, and measurable in one central hub for an efficient digitized workflow.


Beekeeper will be holding live demos today at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in Booth 2839.

"It's truly an honor to be recognized by these industry leaders as having the most innovative hotel technology," said Connie Rheams, Beekeeper VP of Hospitality. "Beekeeper's goal is to help hoteliers improve employee interaction, which in turn cultivates heightens guest engagement. When employees feel part of the hotel family they forge relationships, making it more difficult for them to leave.

"Beekeeper is designed to engage non-desk workers in a modern way who typically do not have an email address," she added. "It gives them a voice, breaks down silos between departments, recognizes them for doing an outstanding job, creates loyalty, and drives job retention. The happier employees are at their jobs, the more guest loyalty and satisfaction scores improve. Earning this award at HX validates that the industry is in real need of a digital transformation."
