Tracking for Infection Chains in New Employee App

7 July 2020

Digitally connected means: short ways of communication despite social distancing. Perfect coordination is the imperative of the hour for agile teams. The EASY employee app (EASY ApiOmat HR app) for iOS and Android brings this idea to companies and protects the workforce with a health module that serves as an addition to existing solutions.

Internal communication is only as flexible as its access platform. Nevertheless, classic computers are still the most widely used platform for coordinating internal teams. With the EASY employee app, all employees always carry their news feeds, vacation planners, sick reports and more with them. In light of current challenges, the EASY Employee App is available as a pre-release with the most important functions for the current situation. The health module is the focus of this pre-release:
All companies – but especially those that cannot run their business entirely from remote offices – face a unique challenge: they must be able to trace infection chains in their own workforce comprehensively and reliably. The faster this process works, the more effective early measures and reactions will be. Despite all the urgency, however, discretion and data protection should not fall by the wayside.

Users of the EASY employee app can report a positive test for an infectious disease to the HR department directly via app. Contact to infectious persons can also be reported in this way. The app automatically searches the integrated attendance list whenever a report is received. This way, it finds people with whom contact may have been established within the last 14 days. This makes infection chains transparent and allows them to be spatially localised.

Data on diseases or chains of infection are not stored in the app, but are sent confidentially to the HR department via a specified e-mail address. Other employees cannot see who is affected by an illness and in what way. Stored attendance data can also be deleted after one month. 

The complete EASY employee app will be freely configurable. Only the attendance list and the health module will be available for pre-release. Soon, an integrated newsfeed will make company-internal information – for example on health issues – readily available on mobile devices. The benefit of the EASY employee app is not limited to current chains of infection or annual waves of influenza; the app will also relieve companies in coordinating everyday business.
