Sewio helps fight COVID-19 with ‘smart quarantining’

April 1, 2020  - By


Sewio — a UWB-based, real-time location system (RTLS) company — is offering companies free consulting and software licenses to help them install employee tracking technology.

Current quarantining and other enforced measures are designed to save lives by containing the spread of the virus. Once these restrictions are lifted, the pressure to restart manufacturing operations will increase.

Nevertheless, this brings the risk of a COVID-19-positive employee introducing the virus to the workplace, increasing the risk of infecting colleagues, endangering lives and placing the factory under quarantine again.

With its precise accuracy, ultra-wideband RTLS enables employee tracking and monitoring of any employee who has come into contact with a newly identified infected person. According to Sewio, it can help make sure exposed staff members are tested and receive the treatment they need as quickly as possible.

“UWB-RTLS-powered smarter, faster and selective quarantining helps save lives and keep mission-critical operations running at all times,” said Milan Simek, CEO at Sewio Networks.
