Partnership will help managers use natural handwriting while capitalizing on digital features to capture all the information they need in their day-to-day business, making the iPad more productive for work
San Francisco, CA – October 22, 2014 – BeesApps, a leading provider of corporate productivity solutions, and Livescribe, a global leader in the design and manufacturing of smartpens, have teamed up to address the growing need of business managers to stay productive on the go.
Studies* show that managers in US companies spend more than 50% of their time either attending meetings, following up tasks, or reporting on their activity. In an average month comprising of 80 hours’ worth of meetings, with hundreds of actions to track and 30 hours of reporting, business managers need a solution to increase their efficiency at managing this entire process.
In an effort to greatly improve this daily routine, BeesApps is enhancing Beesy, its corporate productivity solution, to support the innovative Livescribe 3 smartpen and include MyScript state-of -the-art digital ink handwriting recognition. The enhanced solution will help managers increase their productivity by organizing their actions directly from their notes.
“Livescribe smartpens make it easy to connect paper and pen to the digital world. Paper notes become invaluable when automatically available on the digital devices we use daily for business,” said Gilles Bouchard, CEO of Livescribe. “Managers don’t have to choose between their pen and their digital devices, they can use both together for improved productivity.”
The combined solution links the paper and digital world in a seamless way. Whether users prefer writing on paper or tablets or both, business-critical information will instantly be available in digital format. BeesApps will help managers digitize handwritten text into reusable and understandable information to identify action items, track tasks and decisions, truly integrating their handwritten notes into their daily management process.
With this partnership, Livescribe, and BeesApps aim to bridge the traditional gap in business between paper notes and the digital world. This will help people stay more engaged in meetings/presentations while still capturing all of the information they need, turning people’s notes into interactive, actionable digital text that can be edited, searched, tracked and easily shared within the organization.
“Beesy customers are already saving more than 30 minutes a day using our digitizing platform over iPad. This partnership will reconcile paper and digital in a single process, with the potential of being a game-changer for every manager’s daily routine,” said David Chevenement, CEO of BeesApps.
BeesApps and Livescribe will release more details about this partnership in the future.
