BeeDIGITAL - Páginas Amarillas Soluciones Digitales. SAU

We have transformed our business from cellulose technology to humanised algorithms. Before the internet existed, we were Google, with the Yellow Pages. After undergoing a digital transformation “like a book” during the last 3 years, our mission remains intact: to help SMEs to get clients. We are currently the leader in Spain of digital marketing services for SMEs, with an offer of 360-degree marketing solutions, including digital presence, web design, E-commerce, social media, video, search, Facebook ads and display, all these services packaged in a subscription model. With our digital transformation completed, we are beginning the second to become an AI-Ready Company , through a massive use of Machine Learning algorithms in our relationship with the client and in operations. Our growth strategy is through alliances with large companies and international organisations that seek to complement their value proposition for SMEs. Examples of this are our agreements with Vodafone, SAGE, Securitas Direct, Visa and the Autonomous Community of Madrid.
