As they head back to the office, businesses are scrambling to figure out what’s needed to keep employees safe, healthy, and productive. And it’s not just coronavirus they’re worried about. New threats to health and safety will inevitably arise, and businesses also want to be ready for those.
For office technology dealers, this presents a compelling opportunity to open new revenue streams, enhance their consultative roles, and become an even more valuable partner to the businesses they serve. Here are just some of the offerings dealers will be targeting as they develop their strategy to win business in a marketplace where health and safety are paramount concerns:
Automated Temperature Check Kiosks
With features like proximity detection, facial recognition, touchless operation, and of course, fever screening, advanced automated temperature check kiosks will soon be a familiar sight at businesses everywhere.
From helmets with sensors for temperature and oxygen saturation, plus built-in hands-free wireless communication, to clothing that can detect toxins, heat, and more, PPE is more than just masks.
Health and Safety Tracking Software
One of a company’s best lines of defense is a well-informed and prepared team, so employers are investing in software that tracks health and safety training completion, identifies and addresses knowledge gaps, and more.
Portable Air Filtration Systems
In addition to existing building air filtration systems, companies are seeking the added peace of mind delivered by portable units with advanced technology that filters nearly all airborne pathogens, harmful VOCs, and other contaminants.
With the need for constant disinfection of radios, phones, and intercoms, businesses are increasingly interested in fast, highly reliable mesh-based networking systems that seamlessly integrate with smart PPE and hands-free communication technology.
Smartwatches, smart badges, and other wearables with biometric capabilities allow secure touchless logins, controlled access to sensitive areas, and precise location tracking. Some wearables can even monitor blood oxygen and other health metrics.
UV Surface Disinfection
Stationary and mobile UVC light units with motion detection can automatically disinfect surfaces that quickly collect pathogens, such as touchpads and access doors, without the need for potentially harmful and repeated chemical disinfection.
Compliance Consultation and Training
From meeting mandates for distancing between workstations to ensuring companywide adherence to sanitizing and other requirements, employers will need help navigating the maze of federal, state, and local health and safety regulations.
