New notable functionalities of Qubie include:
- New Welcome Cards: provides an overview of Qubie’s functionality and purpose to ensure seamless onboarding for new users.
- Weekly Team Check-ins Enhancements: analyzes team performance and obstacles over a range of items, such as leadership, individual projects, resources, and workload, analyzing team performance.
- Customizable Content Packs: lets users determine what is the most important to their role and KPIs.
- Admin Panel and Multi-team Capabilities: includes an admin panel that supports multi-team feedback, so questions can be asked on a per-team basis.
Questback is cementing its place as a global leader in enterprise feedback management. This especially follows the news that Questback has entered a strategic investment agreement with Ipsos, the third-largest market research company in the world.
Key to Qubie 2.0’s successful rollout and adoption will perhaps be its most underrated functionality: the New Welcome Cards.
