New contact tracing bluetooth technology helps businesses avoid interruption due to COVID-19 without privacy issues


Utilising Bluetooth tracing technology, Contact Harald is giving businesses a new way to keep their employees and customers protected with one simple proximity tracking card.

The COVID-19 card and contact tracing platform provides a fast and effective stand-alone solution as it doesn’t require the use of WIFI, apps, phones, IT installation or charging.

How does it work? Check out the video here.

Each individual is issued a registered contact card unique to them. They remain secure, containing no personal information. If an employee does test positive, or report symptoms of COVID-19, proximity data is uploaded from the card. All data remains encrypted and secure utilising the platform.

Contact Harald is built from the Bluetooth technology created by Safedome which has been used for tracking devices around the world for over seven years. During the pandemic, the engineering and design teams decided to put their technology to work. Safedome intends the system to be used across a range of industries to include healthcare professions, manufacturing, warehouses and educational institutions.

"Designed with speed and accuracy at its heart, this unique platform can quickly identify, contact and isolate any potential sources of infection," said Matt Denton, the former Apple designer behind the Contact Harald platform.

“The striking green Contact Harald cards also offer a visual compliance cue which can help with staff morale and visitor confidence across all industry sectors.”
