Moneypenny launches COVID-19 screening tool for businesses

A new online Self-screening tool has been launched to help businesses manage visitors’ and customers’ safety more easily, before any face-to-face activity takes place.

Our new Self-Screener is available to companies across a range of sectors including leisure and hospitality. The tool has three core functions, all of which can be customized easily. Firstly, it captures contact details securely in one place to enable track and trace should a business be exposed. It also communicates any on-site policies, such as the use of face coverings or handwashing on arrival and gains the visitors’ consent. Finally, it asks users a series of health-related questions to check clients or customers are in good health before they visit.

The Self-Screener will ascertain whether anyone is self-isolating, has any Covid-19 symptoms, has come into contact with anyone who has or is suspected of having the virus or if they feel unwell.

This is the latest innovation to help organizations remain efficient and operational during the Covid-19 pandemic from Moneypenny.

Joanna Swash, CEO at Moneypenny, said: “We’ve developed this tool specifically to offer extra reassurance and give confidence to business owners as they begin on their road to recovery.

“By using the Self-Screener, companies can ensure that all parties are symptom-free before they come into contact with each other, and can rest assured that they’ve done as much as possible to protect their customers and clients without juggling a messy paper trail and clunky forms.”

Joanna added: “This is not a substitute for observing social distancing and extra hand hygiene, but an extra layer of safety and due diligence to help the economy thrive again. With an incredibly simple setup that takes less than 24 hours and no long-term contracts, we expect the Self-Screener to be a very welcome tool for US businesses.”

Users can choose to integrate the tool into their online booking system, or simply share a link to a brand-customized page which hosts the application. Businesses access full analytics via their own individual portal and receive a real-time response email for every completed questionnaire to their chosen email address/es. It is also possible to escalate chats (based on the answers provided) to either their own in-house staff, or to a Moneypenny Receptionist, for an additional cost.
