New version of SmartLinx intelligent time clocks designed to mitigate the spread of infection by detecting fevers through touchless technology
ISELIN, N.J. (October 13, 2020) — SmartLinx – a leader in workforce management solutions for post-acute care and senior living organizations – today introduced SmartLinx Thermal-Sensing Touchless Time Clocks. As part of the company’s ongoing commitment to helping senior care operators navigate today’s workforce challenges, especially those stemming from the COVID-19 crisis, the innovative new time clocks help stop germs in their tracks by detecting fevers before employees start work.
With the number of COVID-19 cases rising in many states, skilled nursing and assisted living facilities are pursuing additional measures to safeguard the health of residents and staff. In addition to acquiring testing and PPE supplies, operators are looking for better ways to enforce official guidelines designed to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Building on SmartLinx’s recently launched Touchless Time Clock, a thermal sensor automatically takes the temperatures of employees standing in front of the time clock, even if they are wearing masks.
The clocks help mitigate the spread of germs, as employees no longer required to physically interact with a high-touch device. Once the temperature is detected, a QR code generated on the SmartLinx Go mobile app automatically aligns the recorded temperature with the employee ID and punch type.
The state-of-the-art time and attendance system also streamlines the process of punching in and out of work. Employees can clock in and out six times faster than they can on traditional digital time clocks, which require scanning fingerprints or inputting access codes. This system thereby reduces long lines at the clock during shift changes, making easier for employees to social distance.
“SmartLinx’s innovative SmartLinx Go app enables employees to access their personal information on their own devices. The recent enhancements facilitate touchless communication with the time clock that will enable our staff to clock in and out without risking the transmission of diseases through contaminated hands. Our healthcare heroes deserve everything we can do to protect them. We are thrilled SmartLinx is making this innovation available!” said Nancy Stoddard, Vice President of IT at The New Jewish Home.
