The value for the returning workforce of a body temperature kiosk.

As many businesses are gearing up to going back to business and to the “new normal” what are the messers steps to get employees and customers back to your business? Is a body temperature kiosk the right solution?

For many businesses the decision on how to get back to work relays on essential and necessary steps placed by local government and CDC guidelines, with the economy starting to recover from COVID 19 and businesses such as retail, hospitality, and manufacturing getting ready to welcome their employees, it’s important to take those protective steps to ensure the safety of employees and customers. Some of those steps are as simple as the enforcement of people wearing face masks and checking their body temperature, while in some cases and some states a log of the body temperature screening will have to be taken to allow some audits and reporting.

So what is the most effective way to get someone’s body temperature and how do you make sure they are wearing a mask? Well, the simplest way is to have a person testing people for fever with a simple fever checking point gun with IR thermal scanner, literally, someone has to stand there for a full shift and in some places over 3 shifts and preform that test and on top of that he/she has to log every visitor. So besides the fact that it could be very costly, it’s also a very inefficient and slow process plus the records of date log could be sloppy and wrong, in one sentence, too many human error points. So what is the solution? Body Temperature Kiosk, yes you read it correctly, a self-serving kiosk that can take body temperature, check for a mask and keep a log of every visitor or employee, but wait, it does a lot more than that, with advance face recognition technology it can also identify employees VS a visitor and track the scanning log bypass or fail and report the log to a supervisor or someone in the building, the body temperature kiosk has many other features that can be pivoted and used to integrate to a security access management system and HR system as well and give an employee the tools to deal with the return of the workforce much better and in a more cost-effective way.

Here at Popshap, we understand the value of automation and efficiency so with our vast experience in kiosk technology we pivoted and added a new line of body temperature kiosks to help a business go back to work faster. We also added software tools that can work in a network environment and not just as a stand-alone body temperature kiosk which can help companies look at the data log form one central place or remotely.
