What Tools Does Your Workplace Require to Ensure Social Distancing?

Covid-19 has brought considerable change to the everyday working of the office environment. The overwhelming guidance to maintain a social distance for the remainder of this time, means significant changes must be applied to shared office spaces and how we utilise our space with each other in the workplace. 

Providing Enhanced Security with New Touchless Biometric Access Control Readers

In helping organisations prepare for a workplace post-pandemic, here at TDS we understand the importance of a touchless working environment, as well as security, offering a variety of touchless biometric access control solutions.    The Post-Pandemic Workplace Doesn't Have to Require Compromised Security Solutions Access Control Systems and Visitor Management Systems are converging to meet the 'new norm' in health and safety procedures in the workplace. Specifically, the business-critical nature of managing the flow of visitors and regulating visitor access for the sake of everyone's health and safety. In other words, paper logbooks and clipboards at your front desk are simply unsafe in today's world, and will no longer be enough to secure entry onto your facility.  Reducing the amount of surface contact between people and readers/kiosks whenever possible throughout each facility can help minimise the spread of Covid-19 or any other viruses. This is where the digital interfaces possible between the two technologies - access control systems and visitor management systems are sparking new ways to accelerate notions of security and safety in the return to work. With Covid-19 causing organisations to rethink the operations of their facilities with the wellbeing and safety of their staff in mind, many facility and security personnel are opting for a solution that doesn't have to compromise between security and safety, At TDS, we are providing touchless biometric access control solutions to enable organisations to continue to offer biometric access readers, that are completely contactless for their everyday users.   Touchless Fingerprint Reader with TDS Access Users are positively identified with a simple wave of the hand.
