In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, local software company, SwipedOn has introduced a screening feature to their sign-in app – providing customers with a much-needed solution to meet new government guidelines around essential contact tracing as part of new measures to fight COVID-19.
SwipedOn chief executive Hadleigh Ford said the company saw an opportunity to expand the abilities of their solution to meet the immediate needs of customers. “It made sense to diversify our product as a screening tool – we already have the software, the infrastructure, and most importantly the resources to do this.”
Ford says, given the more stringent requirements for businesses to operate amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s apparent visitor management systems play an even more critical role in the workplace – as they can be used to help screen visitors and double down as a contact tracing tool.
The additional feature to the sign-in system allows users to screen their visitors by asking questions about their recent travel or current state of health.
Users can then be alerted if a high-risk person has entered their workplace and can take action according to company policy, including declining entry to the visitor.
“Because we understand this is a time of uncertainty we’ve ensured this feature is available to all users regardless of which SwipedOn plan they are subscribed to, says Ford.
“We’re also immediately increasing development efforts to make it a completely contactless sign-in experience for both visitors and employees.”
Like many businesses, the SwipedOn team is currently working from home, but normally they run their high-tech business from The Strand in Tauranga.
The SwipedOn platform is currently used by businesses of all sizes across a wide range of industries in over 5,000 locations around the world.
