A New Contact Tracing Bluetooth Technology Helps Businesses Avoid Interruption Due To COVID-19

Contact Harald is the simple, easy to deploy without IT and secure tracking system helping employers run normal operations as it quickly isolates the possible spread of COVID-19.

In an age where public health impacts day-to-day business, more organizations are turning to contact tracing to keep operations running without disruption. The challenge many companies face is the IT infrastructure and complexity involved.

Utilizing Bluetooth Tracing Technology, Contact Harald is giving businesses a new way to keep their employees and customers protected as all personnel wear one simple proximity tracking card. The COVID-19 card and contact tracing platform provides a fast and effective stand-alone solution as it doesn’t require the use of WIFI, apps, phones, IT installation or charging.

Each individual is issued a registered contact card unique to them. They remain secure, containing no personal information. If an employee does test positive, or report symptoms of COVID-19, proximity data is uploaded from the card. All data remains encrypted and secure utilizing the platform.

The Bluetooth-enabled technology within each card records when two or more people are in close proximity to each other (less than six feet for more than two minutes). If an employee tests positive for COVID-19 the contacts tracked in close proximity of that worker are immediately notified to get tested and remain isolated until the results come in. This proactive behavior gets everyone back to work faster.

Contact Harald was designed by the Australian-based Bluetooth tracking developer Safedome. During the pandemic, the engineering and design teams decided to put their technology to work. Safedome intends the system to be used across a range of industries to include healthcare professions, manufacturing, warehouses and educational institutions.
