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 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 relies 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 or checking their body temperature, while in some cases and some states, a log for body temperature screenings will have to be taken to allow for 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 perform that test. On top of that, he/she has to log every visitor. Besides the fact that it could be very costly, it’s also a very inefficient and slow process. The records recorded in the respective date logs could be sloppy and wrong. Bottom line, too many human error points. So what is the solution? Body Temperature Kiosks. Yes, you read that correctly. You may be asking yourself, what is a Body Temperature Kiosk. A Body Temperature Kiosk, is a self-serving kiosk that can take not only check a person’s body temperature, but can also check for a mask and keep a log of every visitor or employee. However, that’s not all. It does a lot more than that. With advance face recognition technology it can also identify employees vs a visitor to your building, track the scanning log, can show the bypass or fail status of the individual, and generate a report log to give to a supervisor or someone in the building. The Body Temperature Kiosk has many other features as well, that can be pivoted and used to integrate into a security access management system or HR system as well and give your employees a sense of security, as they can use the user-friendly tools and programming, to deal with the return to the workforce and office in a much more comfortable and cost-effective way.

Here at Popshap, we understand the value of automation and efficiency so with our vast experience in kiosk technology, we’ve pivoted and added a new line of Body Temperature Kiosks to help a business get their employees back to work faster. We have also added software tools that can work in a network environment and not just as a stand-alone Body Temperature Kiosk unit. By doing this, we can help companies look at the data log not only from one central place but remotely as well.
