Free Contact Tracing Solution for Schools

Other

Posted: 14 May 2020
Notice reference #: 1HA7V1

In anticipation of Alert Level 2, we have been working on a solution to track parents, caregivers, staff and other visitors onto school grounds.  

The service has already been offered to our 600+ existing client base for free and is now being made available to all other Schools in New Zealand at no cost.

Along with this, new schools get a 1 month free trial of the school

How the contact register works:

  • Parents, caregivers and Visitors use the App to check in to the school when they arrive on school grounds
  • A confirmation with check-in date and time will appear that they can show to staff on entry
  • When they leave they can check out.

A register is kept so you can trace who has been on site, and when.

 FAQ’s

How much will this cost after Covid?
A. This check-in service is free for SchoolAppsNZ clients. The service will be made available for free for non-clients during Alert Level 2.
Q. How will this work for other visitors such as Couriers and other users who do not have our School App?
A. There will be a couple of options here…
1. We will provide you with a QR code that you can print out and put at the gate or office door along with a message on what they need to do.
2. We are currently working on the ability for a staff member (app administrator) to be able to check people in manually from the School App dashboard which could be done on an iPad, phone or PC. In which case these types of visitors would not need to download the app.
