The Covid-19 threat has exposed a number of unforeseen threats to the enterprise’s other invaluable assets, including people and processes.

MIST is a leading edge Wi-Fi system that provides contact tracing capabilities via A.I. and patented low energy Bluetooth Technology, and provides a unique and powerful solution for promoting personnel and guest safety as part of your comprehensive business continuity plan.

Mist’s location services can provide the following solutions, reducing risk for the workspace by providing a platform that enables the following:

  • Journey Mapping: View traffic patterns and dwell times for individuals who have self-reported testing positive for COVID-19, from the moment they came onsite to their departure, from 24 hours to 2 weeks or more.

View historical traffic patterns and dwell times for individuals who have reported testing positive for Covid-19 – from the moment they came onsite to their departure.
  • Proximity Tracing: Once the user journey has been mapped for the individual who has self-reported, the next step is to get information on what other devices were in the areas frequented by the impacted person. Both of the above are enabled by leveraging location for connected Wi-Fi devices, associates wearing BLE badges, or running their associate productivity app on their devices that has been location enabled.
