• Sign In App rolls out Contactless Sign In

        • Sign In App has launched Contactless Sign In, a new addition to Sign In App's existing range of features, to enable organisations to keep their employees safe as a spike of 50 per cent of sites have started to plan the reopening of places of work this month.

          With this in mind, the development team recognised the changes happening in workplaces as a result of COVID-19 and that further new features to Sign In App’s previous releases would be needed. 

          Dan Harding, Managing Director, Sign In App said, “contactless wasn’t part of our product roadmap in March, but we understand the workplace and the changes that are taking place which would have been impossible to predict at the start of this year. Our technology development capabilities meant that we could quickly rise to the challenge and solve a problem that we knew many businesses would be facing.”

          Employees across a variety of sectors are understandably concerned about returning to work, away from the safety of their own homes. In fact, a recent poll found that 44% of working adults feel anxious about the prospect of going back to work because of the health risks posed by COVID-19 to them and those close to them. This also resonates with health and safety concerns regarding visitors coming into people’s organisations.

          Contactless Sign In addresses these concerns by removing the need for any form of contact when signing employees or visitors into an office or reception area. The new feature introduces a ‘hands-free’ option for QR code scanning; a simple change that allows staff, visitors and contractors to sign in and out without touching the screen, all from the safety of their own smartphone. 

          As part of the new update, Contactless Sign In replicates custom fields, including important health questions, and allows for rich content within messages, such as videos and signing documents. All of this can be completed securely directly from the visitor's smartphone and ensures that employers are sufficiently fulfilling their duty of care.

          Dan added, “the new addition allows organisations to maintain social distancing and ensure that all employees and visitors can sign in and out in a safe and efficient way. The data can also prove vital in the carrying out of any contact tracing requirements, allowing businesses to review the history of the visits and who may have been in contact with people at the same time.”
