In the “Homescreen!” series, we regularly present you the home screens of people from the social media, marketing, media and tech world – including exciting app recommendations and tips for everything from to-do lists to a quick game for in-between times. Today: Cristian Grossmann, CEO of Beekeeper.

Cristian Grossmann: Good communication is key. That's exactly what I'm working on with my team at Beekeeper. We provide mobile communication and productivity solutions for companies in the construction, manufacturing, retail, healthcare and municipal sectors.

With our employee app, operational employees can reach and connect with each other in real time and digitize paper-based processes. Of course, my home screen also reflects Beekeeper's mission exactly.

Cristian Grossmann relies on structure in his daily work routine

When I get up in the morning, the first thing I do is open our internal Beekeeper app called The Hive. On the way to work, I check my emails and see what's new on LinkedIn (for Android). Useful apps for me in everyday work are the online whiteboard Miro (for Android) as well as Confluence (for Android) and Jira (for Android) for planning and tracking projects in the team.

My favorite apps are all about smart home, lights, music, but also controlling doors and windows via apps – I have a few of them on my home screen. I love the connected home. I find it very exciting to test new possibilities and integrate them into my everyday life.

In addition to classics such as Amazon Alexa (for Android), I use the smart lighting system from Philips Hue (for Android), the electronic door lock with the Nuki app (for Android) and iRobot (for Android), the app for vacuum and mop robots.

I also have SwitchBot (for Android) to control doors on my smartphone and the smart home control apps Osaio (for Android), TaHoma (for Android), Shelly (for Android) and Tuya Smart (for Android) to control other smart devices.

Sport as a balance

For me, sport is the ideal way to relax after a long day at work – I use Garmin Connect (for Android) and TrainingPeaks (for Android) for this. These fitness tracking apps store my sports and health data and help me achieve my training goals.

I also use Strava (for Android), a social network for tracking sporting activities such as jogging, cycling or skiing, to connect with other active people. As a Swiss person, skiing is particularly important to me – I check the snow and weather conditions in my favourite ski areas with the Swiss Snow app from Switzerland Tourism.

But alongside all the action, I also need quiet moments. Lately, I've been using the little quizzes and puzzle games from Impulse's Brain Training Games. The meditation app Muse (for Android) also helps me relax.

In addition to all these applications that simplify my life and help me to develop, my home screen will always remain my most important communication center. Because, as I said, good communication is what matters.
