Technology multinational GMV has launched the Covclear app to ensure a safer and more efficient return to work after the COVID-19 lockdown. It helps make sure offices will be a safe workplace while minimising the risk posed to the health of employees or other persons who are working in open workplaces in an environment of maximum safety and protection. The app relies on a principle of co-responsibility between the company and its employees, to protect their own health and that of their relatives and workmates.

Covclear integrates the following in a single platform:

  • a daily medical health check of all employees
  • recording of trips to restricted sites
  • contact tracing within the firm
  • control of office access by means of temperature readings
  • quarantine management
  • control of site occupancy
  • publication of the company’s healthcare crisis rules.

It offers a self-check prepared by clinicians to assess the state of people and pinpoint any contagion risk before they commute to work on the basis of employees’ daily responses, with the app determining their risk level on their own phone, generating a workplace accessing QR colour code. A red code would trigger an automatic three-day contract tracing, giving all these contacts instant and anonymous warning so they can act accordingly. All this is conducive to the ongoing safety of all work colleagues.

Rapid availability

Covclear also allows for the management of site occupancy, assigning days of on-site working to employees and thereby ensuring maintenance of optimum occupancy levels in places with a large number of workstations. The app developed has been designed to protect information at source, which guarantees data-protection compliance at all times. The company will have access only to the QR code colour for carrying out the corresponding access control and to gain an overview of the company’s state of health.

The app is already up and running thanks to GMV’s wealth of expertise in the development of technology and mobile apps. GMV is also making this app available to its clients, suppliers and any other firm that might be in need of such safe going-back-to-work services.
