CHEQ Crisis – Free tool for internal company communication during the Coronavirus outbreak
CHEQ is an internal communication software with which you can reach your employees by chat.
Normally, CHEQ is a monthly subscription service, however, during the Coronavirus outbreak, we will provide it free of charge to all companies, without commitment.
The Coronavirus outbreak has been the topic of public debate for weeks now, and panic is noticeably increasing. Perhaps it’s not the virus that’s causing the largest casualties, but rather the distress and emergency generated by it. That’s undoubtedly the case in the economy: stocks are falling, companies’ operations are struggling or shutting down. The most important thing to do now is minimalizing loss and avoiding chaos and panic.
For that, we’d like to offer a completely free, instantly deployable internal communication tool for companies. Introducing CHEQ Crisis, the free version of our internal communication software, CHEQ. Any company that has an establishment in Hungary may use CHEQ Crisis free of charge to its own, unique communicational goals regarding the virus. The software runs on Viber platform without any need to install another app, on any smartphone. You may find the form necessary for application at the bottom of the page, but before you fill it in, you can see all the answers to the most important questions here:
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: firstname.lastname@example.org or on our Infoline +36708865467
