Benefits of digital contact tracing tools

Organizations in every industry are focusing on keeping employees and customers safe, while minimizing the impact on day-to-day operations. Digital contact tracing offers a low-touch, automated and scalable solution using wearable, digital badges.

While traditional contact tracing is slow and unreliable, a digital platform has the ability to respond faster with greater accuracy. And, it’s designed to integrate seamlessly with existing workflows.

Features include:

  • Anonymized and secured information
  • Proximity and time-stamp data
  • Quick to deploy and provision

Connected platform IoT concept

Creating an intelligent solution

Contact tracing, as part of the Insight Connected Platform for Detection and Prevention, helps prevent the spread of disease.

This cloud-based, IoT-enabled platform provides data analysis and real-time insights. It can be connected with thermal cameras, social distancing sensors and other technology.

Deploy your solution quickly with Insight and Microshare.

By combining our Connected Platform with Microshare’s technology, you’ll get an integrated contact tracing solution that is comprehensive, nonintrusive and secure.

Microshare’s sleek badge and transmission system automatically records when devices are close to each other and sends the information without disrupting employees or bogging down your networks.


Sensing as a Service

Leasing devices as an operating expense gives you low monthly payments. Plus, your devices will stay up to date with the latest features and functionality.

Integrated security

Data passes through Microshare’s encrypted network directly to your environment, where it can be handled according to your privacy protocols.

Device IDs

Each badge has a unique identifier that is not associated with an employee name. No personally identifiable information is stored by the device.

Contact tracing notification app concept

Critical data and quick notifications

If an employee or visitor reports an illness, authorized contact tracers at your organization can initiate a case using Insight Connected Platform. When a case is created, names are then matched to any user IDs that logged proximity events with the person.

People can be notified quickly, discreetly and according to your organization’s policies. Our solution will also provide insights on which areas of your facility may require deep cleaning.

Devices to meet your needs

Modern contact tracing methods can accommodate many use cases to securely associate the device to a user. For example, employees or visitors can use a self-service kiosk to check in upon arrival and check out before departure.

The devices

Wearable device

Worn on a lanyard or around your wrist, these lightweight devices are minimally intrusive.

Smart badge

With low cost and long battery life options, badges offer a combination of flexibility and durability.

The technology


Bluetooth® Low Energy is used to connect small devices and works well in indoor spaces, where GPS has difficulty finding signal.


Helpful in supporting IoT technology, these devices cache contact events and securely transmit them via a LoRaWAN gateway.

Contact tracing for business

Contact tracing solutions incorporate into your employee’s daily routines with minimal disruption to workflows and productivity. Organizations can conduct business with confidence while promoting employee and customer safety — encouraging those who may have come into contact with a sick person to stay home.

Contact tracing proximity sensor concept

Benefits of digital contact tracing

Manual contact tracing has been around for decades, but the process can be tedious and unreliable. Digital methods improve accuracy and save time by relying on proximity sensors and location technology instead of people’s memory.

Digital contact tracing:

  • Keeps information anonymous and secure
  • Minimizes human error
  • Offers data for analysis
  • Drastically reduces notification times

Ensuring employee security

Protecting identity and personal information is a top concern. We can establish an effective digital contact tracing solution that is anonymized and secure.

Discreet notification

People are only contacted when a case is logged, and names are shared based on your health and human resources policies.

No personal data

Instead of employee names or badge numbers, the information associated with a wearable device can be randomly assigned.

Strict user permissions

Robust user permissions and identity access controls can place restrictions on who has access to data.
