About the Company

Allison and Stephanie co-founded AnswerBar (Amui Inc) in an attempt to change the way businesses interact with Human Resources. In 2019, they launched AnswerBar, an application that provides on-demand access to vast HR knowledge. This application is like having an HR expert having your back, that too at an amazingly low cost.

The Founders of AnswerBar always felt that the industries lacked in having an affordable and reliable substitute to traditional HR. More so, for the small and medium enterprises, there has been a huge gap in HR recruitment processes. Companies are often exposed to monetary and legal risks which are involved with poor decision-making caused by the lack of proper HR knowledge. However, not every business can afford a full-time HR Generalist who can help them make the hiring processes better and streamlined. In this regard, AnswerBar has an answer. Both Stephanie and Allison provide a centralized human-to-human platform with cross-references of provincial employment standards.
