    Covid-19: Utilising TDS Visitor Custom Alerts Effectively Against a Pandemic

    CustomAlerts-3With the continuing concern of the spread of Covid-19, TDS Visitor has now provided new functionalities in order to support organisations throughout this pandemic. With the face of Covid-19 changing daily, necessary response functionality must be applied to deal with the rapid growth of the virus.

    Being Proactive Throughout the Development of Covid-19

    At the beginning of the outbreak, TDS added message banners to all our TDS Kiosks, Invitations and general kiosk messages. These message banners asked all who used the kiosk or iPad, if they had visited mainland China in the past 14 days. However, this soon extended to adding countries such as Italy, Iran, and South Korea until the list continued to grow to its global scale, seen today. 



    Adapting to Daily Change with Custom Alerts

    TDS adapted to the daily changes and updates regarding how the virus changed from a virus to an epidemic, and now, a global pandemic.

    TDS is confident that through our visitor functionality updates via our new Custom Alert function on all Visitor Kiosks, Invitations and iPad's that we have provided the necessary tools to support organisations throughout the journey.

    TDS are constantly maintaining the situation and working with our customers to ensure they are positioned to protect their employees, contractors, colleagues, and guests through the requirements of our updated visitor functions.

    Covid-19: How TDS Custom Alerts Work

    Each Visitor will be asked on arrival:

    • If they have travelled to or from any infected country.
    • If they have been in contact with any person who has tested positive to Covid-19.
    • If they have shown any of the listed symptoms of Covid-19.

    If a visitor selects "Yes" to any of these questions at check-in, an automatic alert will notify the relevant security or manager. Then, either the visit will be cancelled, postponed or the person will be asked to leave the premises for the safety at the company.
