Integrating CFF’s media monitoring service with JDE’s Workplace by Facebook

In 2018, Jacobs Douwe Egberts (JDE) rolled out Workplace by Facebook globally, as part of a broader review of its internal communications and collaboration strategies.

Their aims included: promoting better information sharing throughout the organisation, improving cross-functional teamwork, and providing quick access internal news and announcements to staff wherever they are in the world.

Consistent with this mindset shift, CFF transformed JDE’s traditional media monitoring service – from an email-based daily summary to a digital news service that seamlessly integrates with the company's secure Workplace environment.

CFF’s media intelligence team creates a reliable stream of relevant external news from around the world and pipes it directly into JDE’s Workplace environment, to inspire secure conversations between JDE’s associates on external matters.
