Softway decided that this product should be released for free - no strings attached.

In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, Softway, a digital transformation agency in Houston, Texas, created a free tool to help businesses stay more engaged with a remote workforce. The web app, originally created for internal use at Softway to foster more engagement, transparency, and efficiency in meetings and remote events—is now widely available for free, no strings attached.

The product, titled Just Ask, is aptly named. It’s crafted around asking and answering questions in an inclusive, psychologically safe, and efficient way. As a two-way communication tool, Just Ask is both bandwidth and user-friendly for teams and companies of all sizes.

By using Just Ask alongside other virtual conferencing software, Softway has been able to reduce the overall time spent in meetings. By gathering questions before meetings begins, Just Ask allows for more efficient and productive remote meetings.

Meeting or event hosts can quickly create interactive Q&A events, which generate a shareable URL that allows attendees to join from smartphones or computers. Users of the Just Ask tool will be able to ask questions anonymously, upvote and downvote questions in real-time, and see all other questions from fellow participants. More features, like polling, are planned for releases in the near future.

“I know companies are struggling right now,” said Mohammad Anwar, CEO of Softway. “Not just with financials, but with supporting their people through this crisis. A big part of that is being able to connect with them, be transparent with them, and be honest with them. We’ve seen the Just Ask tool do wonders for our company during this unprecedented situation.”

Softway is trying to embody its vision statement “bring humanity to the workplace” through the Just Ask tool. When the COVID-19 crisis caused thousands of businesses to shift into survival mode, Softway was no exception.

Mohammad and his leadership team were not just focused on keeping Softway afloat, but also ensuring that the mission and culture of their 17-year-old company did not disappear when the world needed it most.

Mohammad continued, “what better way to give back to the community than offering up tools we’ve been able to use, leverage, and experiment with internally to the community at large.”

That’s why Softway decided that this product should be released for free—no strings attached.

The Just Ask web app is available now and is free to use. You can try it out here.

The Just Ask tool will be rapidly updated to reflect user feedback and new, already planned feature improvements. The team at Softway hopes the Just Ask tool is as useful for you as it’s been for them.
