SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Beezy Inc., the Intelligent Workplace for Microsoft Office 365 and SharePoint – announced the release of Intelligent Workflows™ to bring business processes into the Digital Workplace. Everyday activities that employees historically complete in third-party tools such as Salesforce, SAP or Workday can now be completed faster via Beezy's central, user-friendly collaboration and communication hub.
"Our mission is to deliver a digital workplace that employees love. Part of this is bridging the gap between separate process tools," said Maximo Castagno, Chief Product Officer of Beezy. "By bringing business processes into the digital workplace, we are fulfilling our vision for an Intelligent Workplace where processes are naturally integrated into communication and collaboration flows. Information coming from different sources can now be surfaced at the right time to the right users so they can take action."
Instead of having the user jumping from app to app to complete the steps of a process, the Beezy newsfeed now includes a clever way to expose business process information within the same user interface where people are already collaborating, sharing information and having conversations.
Intelligent Workflow™ features include:
Action Cards™ - Triggered by a specific step in a workflow and delivered to the people involved in the process, these cards display relevant information coming from third-party tools and allow users to act on them, for example approving an expense report or authorizing a leave request.
The Beezy Bot™ Preview - Imagine being able to fill a Leave Request by just chatting with the corporate Bot. The Bot will understand the process and the data points that are required to complete this request, he will use the ones that he already knows and ask employees only about the missing ones. Simply use voice or text on your mobile app, and the manager will immediately get it in their newsfeed.
"The Beezy Bot has become a personal assistant to Beezy users and is already supporting some key functionality in Beezy," said Jordi Plana, CEO of Beezy. "We are now building the conversational channel to make the Beezy Bot the primary interface between a user and the organization he or she works for."
"Beezy now combines social collaboration with workflow automation to raise productivity and accelerate business," continued Plana. "With the release we are announcing today, our Partners can easily bring business processes from any third-party legacy system into the Intelligent Workplace of our joint customers."
Beezy has enhanced these innovative and unique functionalities with intelligence from Microsoft's AI Platform leveraging, for example, Microsoft Cognitive Services, the Bot Framework and the Language Understanding Intelligent Service. By doing so, Beezy remains fully aligned with the Microsoft stack and its roadmap, ensuring customers get maximum return on their investment
