The platform, called PopEntry+, combines instant facial recognition and temperature screening to add a layer of security for companies and organizations planning a return to work.
The technology has struck a resonant chord with restaurants, office buildings, factories, assisted living centers, health clubs, and government facilities — all seeking a cost-effective way to help ensure wellness and security in their workplaces.

In the foodservice industry alone, PopEntry+ is currently being used by operators of regional and national brands, including Subway, DRG (Taco Bell), Lemonade, Cava, Metro Diner, and Brooklyn Water Bagels, among others. The City of Lancaster, CA, the headquarters of a professional sports league, and assisted living centers also have installed the system.
The new technology allows workers and visitors to scan their faces and add some personal information via a secure web portal on their mobile devices. Upon arrival at their place of work, they are recognized and have their temperature taken within seconds by a fixed device installed at the entry. The device can be connected to the door lock to automatically unlock the door or installed on a wall inside of the building.
The establishment will also earn a designation as “POP-Certified” or “Protecting Our People-certified” as a work environment that is doing everything it can to ensure the health, safety, and overall well-being of everyone who interacts with the business in the physical world.
