Identiv’s Hirsch Velocity Platform Now Features Contact Tracing
A download is available to Hirsch customers to support office re-openings with improved health and safety management tools.
FREMONT, Calif. — Identiv (NASDAQ: INVE) announces 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 Prevention’s (CDC) recommendations, contract tracing is a key strategy for preventing further spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
Hirsch Velocity Software with Contact Tracing is a means of proactively and reactively protecting visitors, according to the announcement. 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 new feature is free, downloadable and simple to implement into existing Velocity physical access control system (PACS) platforms, the announcement states.
“While this is useful during the days of COVID-19, it can also be used for other applications, such as seasonal influenza,” says Mark Allen, Identiv general manager, 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 is said to provide 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 said to be designed to deliver the highest level of security, interoperability and backwards compatibility, and it accommodates the evolution of security technology.
