Sharp UK adds touchless sign-in to Optimised Visitor Management system
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.
As guests arrive, they simply 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 risk of COVID-19 transmission. There is no need to download a smartphone app, making the feature ideal for passing visitors.
The OVM system is Sharp’s easy-to-use platform for visitor, employee and contractor registration which was first introduced in July 2019. The system ensures that businesses always 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.
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.”
