ServiceNow, the leading digital workflow company that makes work, work better for people, today announced a new integration with Cisco DNA Spaces to enhance contact tracing with its Wi-Fi-enabled Proximity Reporting app. This integration will help businesses returning employees to the workplace by monitoring their workspaces closely for physical distancing. The company also added new capabilities to its ServiceNow Safe Workplace suite,making travel for business safer and more manageable.
The integration with Cisco DNA Spaces will allow joint customers of ServiceNow and Cisco to seamlessly import location-based data into the ServiceNow Contact Tracing app and identify potential interactions with an affected employee. Proximity Reporting from Cisco DNA Spaces allows customers to better understand the extent of each interaction and potential exposure to floors and buildings across the workplace. This is based on employees’ Wi-Fi network connections to laptops or mobile devices, so case managers can take immediate and informed actions. The new integrated solution will help to reduce workplace transmission of infectious diseases, like COVID-19, by identifying on-site employees who might have been in contact with an affected employee.
New Employee Travel Safety App
ServiceNow also introduced the new Employee Travel Safety app as part of its Safe Workplace suite. Available immediately, the app enables organizations to pre-authorize business travel for employees based on the safety of their destination. Automatic health verification before and during travel and daily contact tracing check-ins help ensure company safety guidelines are followed to help make travel safer.
The ServiceNow Safe Workplace suite has been downloaded by more than 700 organizations, including Bremer Bank, American University, Coca Cola European Partners, and State of North Carolina, and ServiceNow will continue plans of new releases twice a month to support customers’ evolving needs, given the dynamic nature of the COVID-19 pandemic.
