Social Distancing

Track daily circulation, manage social distancing in daily operations with proximity alerts for employees to minimize contacts closer than business preferred distance. Prevent further spread while keeping the employees and the work environment safe.

Congregation Alerts

Prevent gatherings of multiple employees for more than a certain period and create system alerts to inform and tag alerts to instantly disband for enhanced safety. Supports employer-defined parameters (number of people, duration) for a custom-tailored fit.

Responsive Safety Measures

Contact Tracing

When an employee tests positive and/or shows symptoms, quickly report on past interactions between employees for the past 14 days or more in compliance with privacy rules. Support health & public safety officials while keeping the work environment safe.

Prioritized Clean-up

When an employee tests positive and/or shows symptoms, create a report on the office areas where the employee spent time, then prioritize and initiate cleaning for these areas accordingly to avoid any safety concerns for onsite staff.

RTLS Solution (Real-Time Location System)

An RTLS solution is a blend of hardware and software that work together to create a mesh network capable of overseeing the movement of transmitters (tags) within a specific location. This wireless network is created by placing anchors at key points throughout and surrounding a facility. When the anchors get a signal from a tag, the location of the tag can be calculated by using various proprietary algorithms developed by Litum. UWB and BLE are the main technologies in the Litum RTLS framework.

Tag-to-tag Solution

A tag-to-tag system is simple hardware, an electronic tag with an embedded firmware that allows tags to sense and communicate with each other. When they come to a predefined (recommended 6ft (2m)) distance, it easily enforces social distancing through the buzzing of the tags in proximity, while archived data allows contact tracing.
