Industrial automation and digitisation giant Siemens has rolled out digital solutions to help companies cope with the changes at workplace amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Comfy, a workplace app by Seimens,  allows building operators and owners to ensure social distancing rules are being followed while its Siveillance Thermal Shield measures the body temperature of people entering the workspace. 

Its Enlighted IoT Platform allows accurate and efficient contact tracing and relies on real-time location services (RTLS) of people and equipment. It also tracks sanitization, ensuring the safety of building occupants and visitors. 

Seimens has also introduced remote connectivity services to ensure business continuity. 

“For organisations, people are the biggest asset and they need workspaces that are safe and secure, now more than ever. Even in a post-Covid-19 era, organizations of all sizes and across the industry would be required to follow health and safety regulations, in addition to keeping their premises secure,” Robert Demann, head of smart infrastructure, Siemens said.

Last month, Software firm Salesforce entered into a strategic partnership with Siemens to develop a new workplace technology suite that will help companies reopen physical workplaces safely. 

Several technology companies have rolled out solutions to help their clients reboot operations. Bengaluru-based IT services company Infosys, for example, recently launched a cloud and edge-based solution to help enterprises build resilient workplaces. Separately, Aliso Viejo, California-based digital transformation solutions company UST Global also announced it has designed a modular approach to help enterprise adjust to the new normal.
