Businesses are using Protect to ensure no one entering is displaying COVID-19 symptoms

TORONTO, May 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ - CrowdBlink today announced Protect, a new screening and compliance application. Protect is a mobile and web-based application and offers a new way for construction, manufacturing, supply-chain, retirement or long term care facilities, events, and many other types of organizations to screen individuals for COVID-19 symptoms, fitness for work, and risk factors prior to allowing access to a workplace or location.

"The current situation has created a need for businesses to ensure that no one exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms is entering their location and to conduct ongoing assessments," says Jeff Jessamine, President at CrowdBlink. "What we've built here goes beyond simply COVID-19 assessments and offers businesses a way to replace and digitize a number of compliance measures. The immediate demand for Protect has, of course, been from essential businesses and organizations that needed a way to run a safe workplace, however, Protect will play a role in how non-essential businesses, events, and our broader economy, can begin to reopen safely."

Features and benefits of CrowdBlink Protect include:

  • Conducting assessment questionnaires (such as COVID-19 symptoms).
  • Recording readings (such as fever/temperature readings).
  • Is able to scan any barcode/QR code, or manual entry, to associate the assessment results with an individual (most commonly used to scan employee IDs).
  • Associating responses with an individual prior to either returning a PASS or FAIL result.
  • Allows organizations to do everything that can be reasonably expected of them to ensure a safe working environment while automatically maintaining secure, digital logs.
  • Minimal operational impact: the entire process of scanning, recording, and submitting each individual only takes an average of 10 seconds. This allows organizations to keep their workplace safe without sacrificing operational efficiency.
  • Support for either centralized assessments (with an individual conducting the assessment with many individuals) or self-assessments (where an individual submits their own responses in the mobile app).

CrowdBlink Protect is currently available, B2B pricing starts at only $199/month and includes an unlimited number of people scanned. Protect has already been deployed by a number of businesses, including at the multi-billion dollar LAX expansion construction project and a number of manufacturing, and long-term care facilities.
