The entire GetBEE team wishes you a Happy International Women's Day!
GetBEE is a female-led start-up.
Our technology has empowered countless women around the world. From sales associates to educators and consultants, GetBEE has made hybrid work possible for the global female workforce.
Technology as an Enabler for Change
The pandemic aside, the new hybrid work model is revolutionizing the way we think about office culture. GetBEE believes that the future of work is one that is accessible to all and prioritizes speed and efficiency. Our white-label platform permits your employees to be working from all corners of the world, seamlessly delivering state-of-the-art customer service while also easing work-life balance. This means hiring from a greater pool of talent and giving working mothers, for example, greater flexibility to ensure successful careers.

Women Drive Purchases
As we have prioritized our Retail solution, we have come to realize the importance of women's purchasing power, especially when shopping online. According to a recent survey, "women drive 70-80 percent of all consumer purchasing through a combination of their buying power and influence." This should not be left aside: we are proud to have built an e-commerce solution by women, for women.
