21 Dec Vaccine Verifier launched by ATG Digital
ATG Digital has launched a new tool for employers and public establishments that can verify visitor’s vaccine status at access control points.
The news will be welcomed by many ATG Digital customers who need to be able to monitor who can access their premises. Before the Omnicrom variant had started to make headlines, the ATG Digital’s R&S department had completed its design of the new tool. Ross Barron, ATG Digital Solutions Architect, said: “We knew we could give organisations peace of mind knowing they can scan, filter and verify the vaccination status of individuals entering their site.”
Now it is available for free to all new and existing customers. Existing customers need only update their software to begin using the feature. Customisation is available through the ATG Digital support desk.
“We exist to help organisations tighten their risk prevention measures, and we strive to stay ahead of potential company or site politics,” explained Barron, on why the tool was being made available free to access. “Vaccine status scanning is not a luxury but is necessary for safeguarding workplaces and public premises. We consider it our civic responsibility to enable such. We hope that this feature will go a long way to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.”
Upon entry of a building, visitors are prompted to scan their vaccine passport QR code directly with the ATG scanner to verify their vaccination status. Anyone wishing to gain entry who hasn’t been vaccinated or doesn’t have a vaccine passport, will be required to complete additional screening steps such as health declarations or Covid screening questions.
