We’re looking for people. People to play with our shiny new web-app.

After several months of crafting we‘ve finished most of the core features for Floq, but we need help polishing it up

That’s where you come in. You and your gorgeous hands. Hands that can help us polish, play and craft Floq into the best way to check the pulse of a group. You can now register to take part in our private beta, and if your hands are the right ones, you’ll be trying it out before the masses and helping us shape Floq.

We built Floq because we think two heads are better than one and that wisdom can indeed come from the crowd. We thought getting group feedback should be as easy as asking a group of your friends over dinner or shooting out an email to your team, but with the added benefit of knowing how your friends or colleagues opinions compare to the rest of the world.

The Big Picture

Everyone loves the big picture. Big screens at the cinema. Mountain top panoramas and views from the window seat on a plane.  However the problem with other survey applications is they don’t give you the big picture. If you ask a few questions to your customers about what they think of your new branding, there’s no way to find out how their opinion compares to the norm.

Getting answers from your customers is great; but knowing how your results stack up against others is awesome. You might think a score of 4.5 is below average; just about there, but not quite.  But it could be great, you just have no idea because you can’t compare it to anything.

Floq changes all this. Benchmarking is built into Floq’s core so you can understand your context and compare yourself against the world. You may just find that 4.5 actually means you’re top dog in a tough town.

Sharing

Life is more fun when we share. Sharing knowledge means we all grow, after all we often have the same questions, we just don’t know someone else asked that yesterday. Floq solves that by sharing questions. It’s clever auto-suggest feature dishes up options for you as you type, and shows you how many people have used this question before you, so you’ll always be able to compare your feedback to the rets of the world. And if you don’t see anything you like make your own and not only will you be making it easier for the next person conducting a survey on that rare amazon Tupi tribe, but you’ll find that after they do your responses have a little more context around them

Simple and beautiful

Surveys shouldn’t make people’s eyes glaze over they should be ways to connect you with world in the simplest possible way. Software should be intelligent, intuitive and so beautifully simple you forget you’re working. It should make your life easier, not clutter it with unnecessary details. So we created Floq with this in mind. Floq is beautiful, intuitive and intelligent. Very intelligent… It’s also free, because free is beautiful too!

Keen?

To request an exclusive invite to our private beta simply fill out the form at the bottom of this page.  Then on the next page simply help us spread the word about Floq on your favourite social network. With each of your friends or colleagues that signs up, you’ll jump higher in the waiting list. As soon as you reach the top, we’ll email you with an invite. We’ve still got a wealth of improvements to make before we go public, but in the meantime we’ll be trickling out the private invites in stages, so we can continue polishing our baby and squish any last bugs.

We’re also implementing a system of ‘beta-user’ invitations – this means that when you become a Beta User, you’ll be able to invite your friends, family, co-workers, dog – whoever you want – to Floq via email.

Can’t handle the tension? Pre-order our Enterprise version at a 50% discount and we’ll work with you one-on-one to make sure everything goes smoothly.

    I just tested this. And I must say I really love it. Strong, clear and intuitive design. It has never been easier and faster to set up a survey. My eight year old could make one and pass it to all here friends in a few clicks.
