WhosOnLocation new features meets market demand in helping enterprises mitigate the risk of COVID-19
Leaders in People Presence Software enhance their features to help organizations protect those in their duty of care as they return to the workplace.
San Francisco, CA Wellington, New Zealand (PRUnderground) December 8th, 2020
People presences software company WhosOnLocation has recently released a number of new features to their software.
The new features meet the demands of the market, helping organizations keep those in their duty of care safe and secure. Many organizations are navigating the return to the workplace while still dealing with COVID-19.
Once considered a nice-to-have, a system like WhosOnLocation is now a necessity. Employees are demanding the right to know their workplace is safe and alerted when someone is onsite or attempts entry while infected with COVID-19. The state of California has gone as far to pass a law, requiring businesses to track, and alert employees to a potential exposure based on a positive test.
“While a vaccination is looking positive, as employers we can’t become complacent. We need to give our employees the reassurance that it is safe to return to the workplace. This is where WhosOnLocation comes into its own.” says Darren Whitaker-Barnett, WhosOnLocation, CEO.
Since mid-2020, and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, WhosOnLocation has focussed on delivering enhanced features within its product to allow its customers to manage their duty of care obligations to their employees, contractors, and visitors. This includes health screening, touchless kiosks, working from home and remote worker management, contact tracing, and QR code sign in/out posters.
“Ever since we were faced with COVID-19, we have focused on delivering ‘duty of care’ centric innovation within our product, ensuring our customers have the tools to enable a safe workplace. We know that many employees are still to return to work and giving them confidence that their employer cares about their safety and well-being lies at the heart of what we are trying to do.” says Whitaker-Barnett
Protecting your organization features
Where WhosOnLocation differentiates from other Visitor Management applications is its focus on keeping everyone safe including visitors, contractors and employees, all within the one application.
“As organizations return to the workplace in early 2021, the ability to identify, manage and mitigate risks associated with the presence of people is the new norm. Managing who is permitted, who is due onsite, who is actually onsite, who is not, and having controls in place to identify potential risks to your workforce and others in your duty of care is is the minimum requirement to give employees peace of mind around returning to the workplace”, says Whitaker-Barnett.
With an already extensive feature set WhosOnLocation’s latest developments ensure employees can return to a safe and secure workplace. The most recent feature to be added to the WhosOnLocation suite is Amazon Alexa. Customers can use Alexa to deliver human-voice notifications announcing the presence of people, breaches in access rules, and/or alerts to potential risks linked to the arrival of a visitor, contractor, or employee.
Using the features in an application like WhosOnLocation ensures you have the processes and technology in place to give your employees peace of mind. Only those who are well are able to gain access to your workplace. In the unfortunate event that a COVID-19 outbreak occurs in your workplace you can quickly and easily identify who was exposed.
