Pub quiz company finds new markets thanks to Covid-19

Smartphone pub quiz company, KwizzBit is adapting in the face of the Coronavirus crisis.

The Leeds-based firm is facilitating virtual quizzes for pubs to help stay them in contact with their customers, remote working businesses, and families at home.

As a cloud-based service which means quizzes can be hosted and played online from the comfort of a users own homes, it has seen demand soar since the lockdown came in.

KwizzBit’s CEO & founder Mark Walsh said: “There’s a genuine sense of coming togetherness across social media amongst pubs hosting virtual quiz nights and their local communities despite physical social distancing measures. It’s keeping people sane!”

The virtual shift has also prompted KwizzBit to create subscription packages for remote working businesses who regularly meet using video conferencing tools like Zoom & Microsoft Teams.

Business subscriptions offer bespoke quiz writing for employee training, as well as full access to KwizzBit’s library of 3500+ quizzes for team building. Other features include custom branding and the ability to connect 20-350+ players at any one time.

Commenting on the shift into a new market, Mark said: “It’s not just pubs who want to stay connected, it’s businesses too. Working from home can present its own unique challenges like lower productivity, morale and loneliness.

“Using KwizzBit allows companies to actively engage with their employees in a fun, interactive way that can help boost their spirits”.

Since quarantine began, KwizzBit has also experienced a huge spike in sign-ups from families looking to entertain themselves.

In response, an affordable family-orientated subscription has been introduced, which allows up to 5 people to play together.
