The Happiily web app was launched in 2012. It is a Canada-based company serving other businesses. Happiily is seeking to gain popularity among companies with groups of employees large enough to make an anonymous feedback system work. The app may gain in popularity as a measurement tool for employees. Happiily repeatedly reassures workers that there is no way the employers could find out who they are. The information is only relayed to managers when there is data from enough employees to ensure anonymity.
On launch, Happiily had little competition in its genre. Although similar apps are appearing, Happiily has several features that stand out. The complete anonymity guarantee for employees and the easy-to-read chart for managers are among these features.
The web app is easy to use after a brief learning period. Happiily will take some getting used to for both employees and managers. The anonymous comments section is reasonably clear. The chart data for managers is also pretty easy to understand. Some of the comments and feedback options may seem a bit simplistic. The app tries to capture basic moods by prompting employees to rate them, but it relies on employees' sincere effort to make it work.
Happiily requests a user's name, email address, company name and title in order to register for their site. The user is then asked to indicate whether he is a manger or an employee. From there, a user must join with others in his or her organization. The information to fill in is more extensive than with many other apps, including telephone numbers, company data and more. Happiily will take some getting used to for both employees and managers. The anonymous comments section is reasonably clear. The chart data for managers is also pretty easy to understand.
Happiily is free to use.
The application could be recommended to managers of medium businesses. It will be of little or no use to entrepreneurs or small companies. The app can only be seriously used by companies with enough employees so they can give feedback anonymously.
