The new software will enable businesses to swiftly and accurately identify the areas or zones where an employee with either confirmed or suspected COVID-19 has been on site. The tool has also been designed to determine which other employees have been in those areas or zones during a specific period and may, therefore, have come into contact with the virus

FREMONT, CA: Global security technology manufacturer Gallagher announced the development of a software feature that will support organizations with COVID-19 contact tracing. The innovative Proximity and Contact Tracing Report utilizes Gallagher Command Centre's robust reporting capability to identify the onsite movements of specific individuals. The new software will enable businesses to swiftly and accurately identify the areas or zones where an employee with either confirmed or suspected COVID-19 has been on site. The tool has also been designed to determine which other employees have been in those areas or zones during a specific period and may, therefore, have come into contact with the virus.

“At Gallagher, we consider it essential to focus our research, design, and development teams on the most pressing needs in cyber and physical security. Currently, supporting COVID-19 elimination is a huge priority," said Rachel Kelly, Chief Product Officer of Enterprise Solutions at Gallagher. “In a health crisis like this, accurate and timely information is paramount - that is what this new software feature will give to businesses.”

The team of experts at Gallagher is utilizing online platforms to collaborate during the lockdown, by rapidly developing and testing to ensure delivery at the earliest. This comes at a time when tracing is at the forefront of everyone’s mind, following New Zealand Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern’s message that tracing will be a critical part of the new normal.

Gallagher’s new Proximity and Contact Tracing Report is one of many projects that the team is working on to support customers during COVID-19. As a manufacturer of critical security technology, Gallagher's security division is an essential service provider in New Zealand and continues to manufacture and deliver crucial products during this time. So too does Gallagher's Animal Management division, which provides critical technology for the agricultural industry. “Now, more than ever, it’s vital for businesses to be innovative and agile. We’re incredibly proud of the work our teams are doing during this crisis,” said Kelly.

“As a company, we are on a mission to deliver a greater volume of compelling sustainable business value to our customers, partners, and colleagues, and it all starts at gaining an in-depth understanding of customers’ business goals all the way to helping them procure, develop, and implement a solution,” mentions Scott Elliott, Vice President of the Americas for Gallagher.

Gallagher was selected as one of the Top 10 Security Solution Providers – 2020 by the Govt CIO Outlook Magazine.
