What’s included? Power Platform modules to support safety and confidence across your business and beyond

 The main modules of the Return to the Workplace solution include

Location Readiness

The Location Readiness dashboard helps managers determine if locations and facilities are ready to reopen. It also helps them efficiently facilitate and oversee reopening when they are ready.

Facility managers and task force leaders can use the Location Readiness dashboard to make fast, informed decisions based on critical factors such as local COVID-19 infection rates and the availability of supplies.

Facility Safety Management

Facility Safety Management gives facility managers the tools to effectively manage the reopening and readiness of the business locations. This helps organisations ensure their working environments are safe for staff as they return to the workplace, providing them with peace of mind.

Workplace Care Management

Workplace Care Management provides health and safety officers with the tools they need to actively manage COVID-19 cases and identify key areas for safety improvement. It also provides them with the ability to import data from external sources and systems to support case management and manual contact tracing.

The Workplace Care Management dashboard enables monitoring of all the data from the Workplace Care Management app.

Return to the Workplace Portal

The Return to the Workplace Portal gives external third-parties the ability to use a self-service process similar to your employees. It allows them to check in on invitation and self-screen before getting a pass.

Users of the portal can even add new guests or dependents if requirement, providing you with a decentralised, scalable solution.

Employee Return to the Workplace

Employee Return to the Workplace is an easy-to-use self-service tool for your staff. It helps them feel confident and safe about returning to the physical workplace, ensuring they can remain productive and supported while onsite. Your employees can utilise the Employee Return to the Workplace app to check in remotely and self-screen before entering a building.
