Facedrive Inc., Canada’s “people-and-planet first” technology ecosystem, is pleased to announce that after initial positive results and user feedback in a pilot, will be deploying more TraceSCAN wearable devices to Air Canada to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, expanding the scope of the pilot arrangement into 2021.
“Keeping Canadians safe during this challenging time continues to be priority number one,” said Sayan Navaratnam, CEO of Facedrive Inc. Adding, “Air Canada is recognized as an industry leader in COVID-19 safety mitigation. So we are delighted with the opportunity to grow the relationship through TraceSCAN, exploring an additional layer of safety for their employees.”
Later this month, Facedrive Health will deliver Air Canada with additional TraceSCAN Bluetooth wearable contact tracing devices. On top of the wrist band version of the wearable devices currently in use by Air Canada, employees will have the option to wear a key fob version that can attach to a lanyard—providing more variety of use. With a 99% adoption rate amongst participating employees and over 30,000 interactions tracked to date, the integration of TraceSCAN has been effective. During the period of pilot, TraceSCAN team has also enhanced their contact tracing platform with additional features such as real-time interaction analytics, advanced risk calculation algorithms and graphical representation of contact histories.
