People are the most important assets of any organization. We realized that Polte’s asset tracking solution was easily adapted to create a better, more secure way for organizations to allow their people to feel more confident about going back to work.”

For enterprises, going back to work right now is tough. Being saddled with the challenges of enforcing social distancing guidelines and keeping employees healthy amid a pandemic is even tougher.

COVID-19 carriers don’t always immediately (or ever) show symptoms, which could lead to employees inadvertently infecting each other while at the workplace. This also leaves employers in a vulnerable position legally and otherwise, with little insight into how to mitigate employee risks or promote accountability. Employees might not feel safe as their employers resume operations.

Introducing: Polte Proximity

Polte has launched Polte Proximity, leveraging 4G and 5G Mobile IoT networks to provide a secure, privacy-preserving, enterprise-scale social distancing and contact tracing solution for enterprises.

For Employers: Polte Proximity’s innovative proof of location capability enables advanced location-based contact tracing and real-time identification of high-risk events.

For Employees: Polte Proximity empowers employees and makes them feel confident in returning to job sites through smart, cloud-configurable alerts and button presses.

How it Works: Mobile IoT and Polte Proximity

With no need for added infrastructure or invasive downloads to employee’s phones, Polte Proximity capitalizes on Polte’s existing asset tracking platform to allow you to get up and running fast. Polte Proximity consists of only a small, lightweight, rechargeable wearable Powered by Polte Mobile IoT device and access to reporting and insights within the Polte IoT Cloud (PIC) to provide seamless coverage for workers anywhere they go during the work day – indoors and outdoors.

Picture two employees working in a large home improvement store’s warehouse. In a normal world, employees would cross each other or come within close proximity of another countless times throughout their shift. Returning to work as doors reopen, employees can’t afford to focus constant energy on theirs and others’ spatial awareness. When employees clock in, they are able to attach a Polte Proximity device to the lanyard used to wear their ID card. Another may choose to carry it in their pocket, or clip it to their belt.

When employees wearing devices get too close together for too long as they go about their daily tasks, real-time alerts are triggered, which will continue until the employee presses the button to acknowledge them. Notifications of the event’s occurrence (via SMS or email) can be sent to the specified employer personnel to take action as appropriate. Using Polte’s Cloud Location over Cellular (C-LoC) technology, Polte Proximity leverages existing 4G and 5G cellular networks and cloud computing to provide proof of location of these events, which are logged in the PIC.

Management can use this to immediately turn secure data into actionable insights:

  • High-risk areas can be identified in the facility before causing additional potential exposure.

  • Social distancing policies can be reliably enforced to keep employees safe.

  • Social distancing is incentivized without requiring management time and oversight on the floor.

  • Contact tracing can be performed for a database of past contact should an employee become infected.

  • All proximity alerts are logged, complete with proof of occurrence on company property or a job site.

With Polte’s inherent dedication to privacy, there is no need for employees to download an invasive application to their phones or take the device home with them at the close of a workday.  Whether your employees are inside a warehouse, working an auto manufacturing line or at a construction site on a school campus, Polte Proximity can apply to a host of indoor and outdoor use cases due to its core using cellular networks.
