What is the BCX COVID-19
Response Solution?

It is an app built on BCX’s Disease Management Platform and coupled with physical detection tools that can be deployed at workspaces. It uses GPS and Bluetooth technology to trace the location of phones and uses this proximity data to calculate the potential transmission of COVID-19 between employees running the app.

How it works

Data collected over time manages the risk by creating an alert to those who may have been in the vicinity of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, leveraging BCX’s Disease Management Platform by tracking movement of the virus from potential hotspots. This will mitigate the risk of your business shutting down and potential reputational damage. An additional functionality that mitigates the risks associated with client interactions will be available soon.

Why choose BCX

BCX has over 30 years of experience, with a proven track record of application development , modernisation, maintenance and support. A similar solution was rapidly co-created by BCX and the South African Department of Health to aid the fight against COVID-19.
