Identiv, Inc. announced the availability of Hirsch Velocity Software with Contact Tracing. Available via download for Hirsch customers, the free feature has been launched to support worldwide office re-openings with improved health and safety management tools.
Based on the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions’ (CDC) recommendations, contact tracing is a key strategy for preventing further spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
Hirsch Velocity Software with Contact Tracing is a means of proactively and reactively protecting visitors.
If a person enters a building and is later found to be symptomatic of an illness, Velocity can pull a report of everyone who entered the same door who can then be notified to either get tested or self-quarantine.
The feature is free, easy to download, and simple to implement into existing Velocity physical access control system (PACS) platforms.
“While this is useful during the days of COVID-19, it can also be used for other applications, such as seasonal influenza,” said Mark Allen, Identiv GM, Premises. “This means your office can be proactive in responding to potential outbreaks, while simultaneously providing your employees with the peace of mind that there are measures in place to keep them safe.”
