Boston, March 16th 2020 - We understand that there isn’t a single person or business that hasn’t been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the start of the outbreak, it has become clear how crucial information and communication is in keeping us safe, secure and healthy. Communication can be extra challenging for the deskless & frontline workforce that accounts for 80 % of the global workforce and historically don’t have solutions to interact in an effective and consistent manner.
As a direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and holding true to our purpose to create a better work life for millions of people, we are providing open access to our communication module and mobile app for any organization needing to support easy communication between employers and employees.
We’re providing this free of charge and with no strings attached.
All organizations who register will be able to easily and efficiently communicate with their coworkers through the Quinyx communication app for the next six months during this challenging time. Allowing companies and employees to regularly update each other on the status of the organization, staffing needs, opening hours, new policies & procedures and general details about how COVID-19 is manifesting itself on a day-to-day basis. This type of two way communication can help ensure that the business remains functioning in a time of crisis (and offers continuity and resilience to the business in the longer term).
Our free communication module will help you:
- Communicate to everyone quickly:
Qmail is a more efficient tool than both email and intranets as it uses an app and does not require a company email account, allowing employers and managers to send important notices through the mobile app by direct or mass messages to all employees.
- Track Stress Levels: Pulse is a fast and effective method to gauge how employees are feeling – secure, concerned, worried, unwell? Employees can answer survey questions that appear as a push notification on the mobile app.
- Access Employee Contact Information easily: A people directory gives businesses fast access to their organizations' contact information, which can assist in rapidly sharing details about the COVID-19 impact.
- Recognize Efforts: Badge is an effective way to recognize employee achievements and engage the staff with rewarding recognition through the mobile app during a time of uncertainty.
Organizations interested in using our communication module and mobile app can send a request using the button below.

80% of the global workforce is deskless, but only 1% of software venture funding goes to innovations for deskless technologies. That means many deskless workers lack an effective communication tool like companies employing office workers use (Slack, Microsoft Teams, Airtable and others), which are valuable for communicating during a crisis. As a result, deskless workers run the risk of feeling more isolated, anxious and ill-informed of how COVID-19 is affecting their company and their jobs.
Employees will use the mobile app to receive or send messages, this will give them a sense of stability and transparency, which we hope will reduce the heightened sense of anxiety, isolation and doubt they may be feeling. The communication tool will give employees a “place of truth,” where they can get accurate and updated information specific to their jobs and receive guidelines and next steps (rather than hearing it through gossip/rumors, traditional or social media).
Our thoughts are with everyone around the World impacted by COVID-19
