    Capacity Management functionality allows companies to effectively monitor building capacity of employees, visitors and contractors in real-time. Set a capacity limit to ensure you stay compliant with social distancing measures. Once capacity is met, people can only enter in a 1-in-1-out system.

    They key benefits of our Capacity Management feature is that it sets a building capacity, ensures social distancing measures, and provides a real-time view of personnel on-site. 


    Pre-Screening all Personnel

    TDS' pre-screening functionality allows for companies to pre-screen guests prior to arrival, minimising the risk of infection reaching your facility.

    This pre-screening functionality allows hosts to send a list of questions to visitors, which they are required to answer prior to accepting their visit.


    Sample questions:

    • Have you had contact with anyone with Covid-19 in the last 14 days?
    • Have you had a cough, fever or difficulty breathing in the last 14 days?
    • Have you been outside of the country in the last 14 days?

    Hosts and relevant staff will be notified via the visitor dashboard when a pre-screening questionnaire has been completed. Once answers have been submitted, hosts can wither "Accept" or "Decline" visitors depending on their answers, and immediately update on their answers, and immediately update them in real-time via a push notification. 


    Custom Alert Notifications

    Custom Alerts allow companies to tie threshold alerts to any conditions that meet requirements.

    This allows companies to be notified when visitors fail the pre-screening process, when building capacity is met, or when Covid Safety Officer is off-premises. Alerts can be pre-programmed around any data captured by the system.


    Sanitisation Station for Occupancy Control

    With any visitor management solution, it is now extremely important to provide optimum sanitisation for all people entering and exiting facilities post-pandemic.
