CHEQ Crisis – Free help for internal business communication during the coronavirus pandemic
CHEQ is an internal communication software with which you can reach all employees – even deskless workers – and stay in touch with them in all circumstances. At the same time, employees can also communicate with the HR department or the management.
CHEQ is, under normal circumstances, a subscription service with a fee. However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we provide a free trial for companies and organisations without any restraint.
The coronavirus pandemic has been the topic of public debate for months now. There is complete uncertainty in connection with it when it comes to viewpoints and reactions, while the fear of it is noticeably increasing in certain fields.
Besides that, it is not at all certain if the virus itself is causing the most causalities or much rather the uncertainty and panic it creates. There are several signs in economics: stocks are falling, the operation of companies is struggling, laying off or shutting down. The orders, developments, KPI’s set for 2020 are being cancelled. The most important goals for leaders are to minimise any further loss, secure business continuity and maintain the productivity.
For this purpose, we would like to offer an instantly adaptable internal communication tool for companies with which the management can develop stronger bonds with the employees. This is CHEQ Crisis, the free version of our internal communication tool, CHEQ. During the pandemic, any company may use CHEQ Crisis for free for their unique communication purposes. The software runs on Viber on any smartphone without installing other applications.

A great advantage of CHEQ is, that there is no need to install a separate application thus users do not need to update it constantly. Our software is accessible on any smart phone through Viber’s chat platform. As a result, the company can communicate easily with colleagues working on separate work stations or with the ones without a computer or an e-mail address.
After the quick implementation of CHEQ Crisis, you can create a connection between the employees and the management instantly. The announcement sending feature is just as simple as sending an e-mail but 80% more efficient. The announcements sent by the management can be accessed in the Viber account. This way, you can prevent the spreading of fake news concerning the company and also handle rumours within the firm. Based on our experience, a caring company management is especially needed and appreciated by employees in such concerning situations.
This opportunity has contributed to increasing the employees' trust towards management.
With the help of the software management can measure the employees’ satisfaction rate or motivation . With the help of the Pulse Check function a survey can be sent out to specific user groups (created by the management) wich is answerable with just one tap of a button
Using CHEQ Crisis 2.0, you’ll bridge the gap between the employees and management within only few hours.
Where there is a workforce of at least 50 people, and where the digital internal communication is not fully covered, i.e. companies where there is a large number of physical workers
Really. There is no catch. Of course, we are glad if many people use CHEQ, that’s why we created it in the first place, to improve and speed up the communication of a large number of companies and employees. Our goal is to make internal communication as effective as possible, but coronavirus is not a business matter. The news and events of the last few weeks have made us share what we have: a safe, restricted channel between workers and the company, especially where digital communication has not been developed yet, especially at companies where mainly physical workers are employed.
We provide free use for a minimum of 60 days and considering the current situation we may even extend that. Please contact us regarding further use. You can acquire more information by e-mail: email@example.com or on our Infoline +36708865467

If the company doesn’t want further use, then the established channel will close, we will inform you about this beforehand and we will hand over all data digitally.

Due to the information you give us in the application, we can quickly create your company’s software. Things that are missing but are easily completable: order form; consultation regarding data management; list of workers – which can be submitted anonymously (e.g. company registration number), or you may add in further information, if you would like to use different sorts of communication due to more sites or establishments. We can give you advice regarding these topics.
Once the administration is dealt with (standard contract terms, data management), then we’ll send you a user manual, with which you can easily learn the basics. Besides that, we will create a dedicated channel where our colleagues will give you constant assistance to help you fully utilize CHEQ Crisis.
Once a message is sent, you will see the read-rate, who read it, and loads of other different statistics on the admin interface that will help you make your internal communication even more effective.
