Customised contact tracing app created by Evros enables companies to keep staff safe and respond with agility to emergencies.

Irish tech provider Evros is to create 20 jobs after successfully creating a contact tracing app to support companies returning to work safely.

The Safe Trace app, developed in Evros Labs, is based on Microsoft Office 365, is easy to use and does not infringe on GDPR/data privacy issues.

“We developed this application to keep everyone in the workplace safe as well as strengthen health and safety protocols”

It keeps daily logs of employee contact and group work in a simple, reliable way. The solution deletes data after set periods, prompts users to log their contacts and integrates into Microsoft Teams to simplify use. It also has a self-contained reporting module for HR in Excel.

Empowering management

A Connect App allows firms to send critical safety messages straight to staff members’ mobile devices while a Safe Clean App within Safe Trace allows users to book regular as well as ad hoc cleaning of all workspaces and meeting rooms.

Also contained in Safe Trace is a Visitor App that ensures visitors are screened before entering the office, allowing them to observe guidelines and be contacted in an emergency quickly.  In an emergency, a dedicated staff member can use the app to view all the visitors currently in the building.  This app ensures that social distancing is maintained and prevents overcrowding.  It details how many people are in the building at any given time as well as full capacity. 

The Safe Trace application was designed by Evros to deliver a fast and agile approach to contact tracing giving digital updates in real time.

In case of a Covid-19 positive result, visitor and staff details can be quickly accessed and can be contacted and notified of the protocol. This information can be easily sorted, filtered for daily reporting requirements.

“We developed this application to keep everyone in the workplace safe as well as strengthen health and safety protocols,” explained Paul Gilbride, Business Solutions Practice director at Evros.

“They are empowering management, staff and visitors to conduct their business safely and ensuring the correct infection prevention and control precautions are adhered to.”
