In today’s COVID-19 world, planners are facing staggering challenges on every front and these planning products may help. Thankfully, a number of tech companies have stepped up with a host of products designed to help make the planner’s life a whole lot easier.
Estimote is one of the helpful planning products that we found that is a small, wireless device to remind wearers to keep a safe distance and register direct contact exposure. Attendees wear a necklace type device that transmits encrypted short-range wireless signals. Other wearers will receive a vibration if someone is too close, yet this handy device goes one step further: it remembers these contact signals. If an attendee develops symptoms, at the push of a button they can report these symptoms to the team to enable them to create a contact tracing report. Those exposed are advised immediately, although their private details are not shared beyond authorized HR personnel. Unlike your phone or laptop, a full charge on this device takes only 40 minutes and will last a week. (Estimote.com)
