Passio Technologies announced the addition of their Contact Tracing module to their existing Gateway Solution platform.
According to the company, Contact Tracing, a new module in their flagship Gateway platform works with existing passenger identification scanning systems to identify and alert transit operators on university, municipal, healthcare, residential, and corporate transit systems in which passengers may have been exposed to an infected fellow rider.
“This system can give passengers confidence that if someone was identified as sick or contagious, there would be a plan of action to notify fellow passengers,” said Passio President Mitch Skyer.
The program’s reporting system collects rider data from ID scans, letting transit agencies know which other cards were swiped on or off during the same timeframe. CTO Scott Reiser stated, “Tracing and tracking are key ‘first-line’ tools to help control and eventually beat pandemics.” Not only can the system record simple card information, but it can also keep track of detailed demographic information.
Top benefits to riders include newfound peace of mind, confidence to ride transit, and quick access to information. For Passio clients, the solution offers fast and easy access to information, integrations with additional products like CAD/AVL, the means to communicate with riders, and new reporting trends and analysis opportunities.
The new offering integrates with other Passio solutions to further boost its functionality. The product has even been tested and used in a variety of customer applications.
