When something's invisible, it's harder to trace. Or at least, that was the initial fear of Covid-19.
Across the world, we've seen countless physical offices shutting their doors in fear of an undetected spread of the virus. (And rightly so.) But, with the help of intelligent network technology, tracking the virus is easier than once thought.
With that in mind, let's explore the powers of network technology and what it could mean for your business, both now and in the future.
Boost efficiency with track and trace
Business continuity is on every company's mind at the moment. There's a difficult battle between the need to protect your employees and flatten the virus, and the desire to keep your business running at full capacity.
Fortunately, this is where track and trace network technology can give you the best of both worlds.
Network technology disruptors, such as Mist, offer an AI-driven track and trace solution that delivers:
- User journey mapping. This allows you to revisit your employee's location history, which cuts out the unreliability of human recollection.
- Hot zone alerting. Get real-time alerts and pinpoint 'congested' areas within your branch offices. With the collected data, you can understand which rooms and buildings experience the highest rates of traffic and act accordingly.
- Proximity tracing. By harnessing smart WiFi and BLE technology, Mist's solution can locate an 'exposed' individual, as well as the people who came in contact with them during the last two weeks. This means you can isolate any employee at risk before the situation escalates.
The result? You can keep your employees safe, ensure social distancing and keep your business running during a pandemic.

Future network technology use cases
The exciting news is, this technology isn't just built to fight Covid-19.
In fact, businesses like yours can use it across your offices to drive efficiency and manage your people (and spaces) better.
For organisations that regularly dive into last-minute meetings or struggle to find empty rooms within their office building, there's potential to use the technology for meeting room management. By accessing your real-time 'hot zone' data, you can establish which rooms are empty and whic aren't.
The technology has the power to improve your operations and (hopefully) keep your creative juices flowing.
Overcome the unexpected
2020 gave us a lot of surprises. But, with the right network technology, you can navigate these obstacles with ease.
When getting ready to head back into the office, contact tracing applications may be one of the best precautions for keeping your workforce safe and efficient.
And, when the pandemic is long gone and forgotten, they could help you boost your business's productivity and people management.
