A NEW mobile screening app for businesses to monitor employees for any Covid-19 symptoms has been rolled out to seven businesses with more than 1000 users reporting to it daily since its launch three months ago.
Tracepass, was created by Aberdeen-based software development company Insiso in partnership with problem-solving company STC Global.
The firms jointly invested an initial £50,000 creating the screening platform and bringing it to market, while pledging further investment in continued R&D.
Easily accessible on mobile devices, the app requires users to answer a series of straightforward multiple-choice questions – which can be customised by individual businesses – to determine whether they are displaying any of the common symptoms of the COVID-19 virus on a daily basis.
The data is then fed back to a central response team who will identify any trends, analyse and act quickly where needed to protect the workforce and contain the spread of infection.
Glasgow head-quartered Aberdeins Group, which comprises of Simpson and Marwick, Aberdeins and Alston Law deployed Tracepass across their three businesses spanning Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen with 75 employees.
Rob Aberdein, The Aberdeins Group chief executive officer, said: “Tracepass has proven to have an extremely positive impact on our business, and more notably our employees.
“As a group, our duty of care to our employees has always been important but now more so than ever. The app allows us to manage the current circumstances effectively and with confidence. It works seamlessly in the background which has meant high compliance from our employees across all three sites.”
Arrash Nekonam, Insiso managing director, added: “We are delighted with the feedback we have received about Tracepass, and it’s great to see it making real-world impact.
“Businesses must continue to prioritise the health and wellbeing of their staff now, and beyond Covid-19.”
