RAS Watch Unveils Contact Tracing Service to Help Businesses Return to Work
Dealer partners can sell the contact tracing service or a GSOC service that provides monitoring of equipment and remote security operations management.
LOS ANGELES — RAS Watch, a managed service operations and risk mitigation center, announces the launch of its contact tracing service to proactively identify and trace infectious disease outbreaks, such as COVID-19, within a business.
The service combines the RAS Watch remote monitoring services technology, targeted communications and emergency response, along with trained contact tracers, to mitigate the spread of infection across an organization, according to the announcement.
As part of the new service, RAS Watch and its certified partner channel can work with organizations on best practices and to coordinate communications between employees when exposure or presumed exposure is identified to isolate, notify and reduce the risk of an outbreak. RAS Watch uses software technologies to streamline this process, as well as maintain compliance with relevant government-issued regulations.
Installing security contractors can sell either the RAS Watch contact tracing service specifically or the GSOC service that provides monitoring of equipment and remote security operations management. Either service is labeled as being provided by the installing security company.
RAS Watch security operators are certified as contact tracers through the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, which qualifies them to communicate with people infected with COVID-19, identify those who may have been exposed and provide these individuals with guidance to limit the spread of the disease, according to the announcement.
The company is said to use traditional investigative techniques, combined with technology and industry databases, to source information for unknown individuals to continue the contact tracing process.
“Private businesses and public entities have to find a way to protect their people from the threat that the COVID-19 outbreak brings to global operations, and contact tracing is an essential component of that effort as more and more people return to work,” says Ryan Schonfeld, founder and CEO. “RAS Watch is well positioned to offer this service as part of its comprehensive tools and analytics methods that aim to transition companies from being more reactive to proactive in the pursuit of protecting people from the kinds of threats that we’re seeing today and will continue to see in the future.”
