• Sharp UK adds touchless sign-in to OVM system

        • Sharp UK has announced the availability of a new touchless sign-in feature on its Optimised Visitor Management (OVM) system that will help businesses contribute to maintaining health and safety measures in the post-COVID workplace. The new feature is available on the full range of SHARP OVM Kiosks.

          The touchless sign-in feature is an intuitive and hygienic method of signing-in that minimises the chances of spreading COVID-19 in the workplace. 

          Julian Hodges, Group Manager - Product Marketing at Sharp UK said, “with businesses now starting to return to the workplace and more expected from September, they will need to look at every aspect of the building to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 being spread. Clearly the first thing a visitor encounters is how they sign in so this is critical.

          “We are very pleased to be supporting our customer with one of the many changes they now need to bring in and are confident that the touchless sign-in feature to the OVM system will help them maintain a safer working environment.”

          As guests arrive, they scan the QR code shown on Sharp’s interactive display using their smartphone camera. This opens a web browser on their device and prompts the guest to sign-in on their own phone, removing the need for physical contact with the device and reducing the risk of COVID-19 transmission. There is no need to download a smartphone app, making the feature ideal for passing visitors. 

          The OVM system was first introduced in July 2019. The system ensures that businesses have an accurate and up-to-date list of who is on-site and supports compliance with data protection and privacy regulation, including GDPR. 

          The new feature enables Sharp customers to keep track of all on-site visitors and also allows for better contact tracing of COVID-19 transmissions – OVM users can easily report on who was on-site the same day as an affected individual, and if they hosted visitors during the incubation period.
