OTTAWA, ON, JULY 30, 2020 – Vocantas, a Canadian based technology company with over 15 years of experience working with North American healthcare providing secure automated communications, has developed an easy to use solution to help businesses satisfy the government's new COVID-19 guidelines.
The state, provincial, federal and municipal governments of Canada and the United States have set a variety of new mandates and guidelines for employers to follow as a result of COVID-19. Many of these guidelines put the responsibility on the employer to keep workers and work locations safe and free of hazards. This has been extended to include keeping workers safe from exposure to COVID-19 by many governments. Employers can adhere to this requirement, reduce their liability, and most importantly protect their workforce by using the Vocantas Employee Symptom Tracker™ (EST).
EST is a secure web-based solution that allows businesses to collect information from employees in real-time using their phones by automated voice or via text. Results can be easily viewed on a secure website with a unique login and real time alerts are sent to managers if employees report that they have any symptoms related to COVID-19, taking the manual effort out of contacting staff and tracking COVID-19 symptoms.
"We first built this tool to use in our own office and it has made our reporting process so much easier! We now want to do our part and help other companies in North America through this pandemic by offering this quick to deploy solution at an affordable cost. We hope that every business will keep their workforce safe by tracking the symptoms of their employees," said Gary T. Hannah, CEO Vocantas.
