Identiv Inc. today announced the availability of Hirsch Velocity Software with contact tracing. Available via download for Hirsch customers, the free feature has been launched to support worldwide office re-openings with improved health and safety management tools. Based on the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions’ (CDC) recommendations, contract tracing is a key strategy for preventing further spread of COVID-19.
Hirsch Velocity Software with contact tracing is a means of proactively and reactively protecting visitors. If a person enters a building and is later found to be symptomatic of an illness, Velocity can pull a report of everyone who entered the same door who can then be notified to either get tested or self-quarantine. The feature is free, easy to download and simple to implement into existing Velocity physical access control system (PACS) platforms.
“While this is useful during the days of COVID-19, it can also be used for other applications, such as seasonal influenza,” said Mark Allen, Identiv GM, Premises. “This means your office can be proactive in responding to potential outbreaks, while simultaneously providing your employees with the peace of mind that there are measures in place to keep them safe.”
Hirsch Velocity Software provides the security and functionality expected from high-end systems with the ease-of-use found in entry level packages. Velocity is an integrated platform that manages access control and security operations in thousands of different facilities, from single high secure rooms to multi-building, multi-location campuses with the most stringent security compliance. With Velocity, users can control doors, gates, turnstiles, elevators and other equipment; monitor employees and visitor behavior; prevent unwanted access; maintain compliance; and provide a robust audit trail. The latest version of the software platform is designed to deliver the highest level of security, interoperability and backwards compatibility, and it accommodates the evolution of security technology.
Contact tracing is available for free to all Hirsch customers. For more information, visit identiv.com/products/physical-access/hirsch-velocity-software.
