Contact Tracing & COVID-19: New Solution for Small and Mid-Size Businesses is Affordable and Easy to Implement

 

Even though we are still facing new challenges with the current pandemic, many businesses are transitioning to some sense of normalcy in the workplace in spite of COVID-19. The struggle, however, is to keep both employees and visitors safe as remote workers transition back to the workplace. Implementing the necessary tools and processes into the workplace are key in preventing new outbreaks within organizations.

 

How Does Contact Tracing Effectively Prevent and Contain COVID-19 Outbreaks?

 

Contact tracing is a method supported by the medical community for containing COVID-19 (and other outbreaks of contagious diseases). This tracking technique helps to track and prevent new possible COVID-19 outbreaks and is especially important as we transition back to a somewhat traditional work environment.

 

So, how exactly does contact tracing work? The method is simple: trace individuals who may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 (or another contagious disease) and take them out of the workplace to halt the spread of COVID-19. Taking these individuals out of the workplace in order to give them the chance to be tested and cleared is critical to containing any instances of COVID-19 within your organization.

 

This all sounds great, but how do you implement this process within your organization? While many large businesses are able to build and implement their own contact tracing procedures, small and mid-sized businesses often have fewer resources and funds to put toward a custom contact tracing solution. In fact, we will argue that it is even more important for small and mid-size businesses to implement a contact tracing solution as a COVID-19 outbreak is likely to immediately harm a smaller business. This is why AKA Enterprise Solutions has developed a new solution called Safe Workplace.

 

Safe Workplace: The Affordable Contact Tracing Solution for Small & Mid-Size Businesses

 

Safe Workplace is specially designed to support contact tracing within the workplace. Built with Microsoft Power Apps, this accelerator is both affordable and easy to set up and use. Once implemented, Safe Workplace allows any organization to track the location of employees and visitors while they are physically on company property. If COVID-19 symptoms or a positive diagnosis are reported to HR, they can quickly trace all of the locations visited by a given individual. This information is crucial for any organization wanting to proactively manage the spread of COVID-19.

 

 

Safe Workplace’s contact tracing features include:

  • Privacy protection: Employee and visitor location and interaction data is restricted to the organization’s HR department.
  • Easily configurable zones: Setting up zones within your company’s offices or campus makes it easy for employees and visitors to report on their whereabouts within a larger location—including where they are currently and where they’ve been previously.
  • Health tracking: By requiring employees and visitors to complete regular health surveys, an organization can stay on top of any newly reported health changes and step in quickly when needed.
  • Visitor reporting: Real-time tracking of visitor locations is possible thanks to Safe Workplace. Gather basic information about visitors and their health status before they move through your company office, etc.

 

Reopening your business safely during COVID-19 is of utmost importance and taking the necessary measures to do so do not have to be complicated or expensive. Resume your organization’s operations with Safe Workplace Contact Tracing.
