Contact Tracing

Quickly initiate, identify and isolate within hours using real-time location services.

Companies around the globe seek to maintain safe and healthy workspaces for their employees. Newly-implemented government guidelines require employers to help minimize the spread of infectious diseases at work. HID Location Services enables organizations to automate compliance through employee social distancing and contact tracing. These procedures are critical to operations and ensure businesses can scale.

Contact tracing procedures, historically seen only in healthcare environments, locate and trace people and clinicians who have been in contact with an infected person. Today, this has become a mandatory process for most industries globally. In the past, tracking down every person who encountered an infected person took days with manual tools. Using HID Location Services, contact tracing is achieved within hours.

How It Works

Contact tracing is a procedure known to mitigate outbreaks, however it is historically labor intensive. HID Location Services delivers real-time analytics and reporting for quick and effective resolutions. Company officials can trace historical movements, quickly locate exposed team members and initiate isolation protocols instantly to mitigate further spread of illness.


Contact tracing uses the same HID Location Services technology for employee social distancing. The employee’s BEEKs credential registers location, distance, and time period which is sent to Bluzone Cloud for reporting and analysis. If someone in the facility becomes ill, organizations can quickly identify historical interactions with other employees through automated reporting to initiate follow-up. Organizations receive relevant information on persons identified as exposure risks, names of those who were in proximity of the infected person, location and duration times.

Location Services

HID Location Services establishes an ecosystem that can be integrated with many other IoT services, enabling businesses to achieve a long-lasting return on their investment. Across industries, location services technologies from HID are used to manage building occupancies, space optimization and asset tracking. Additionally, in industrial applications, manufacturers can implement remote HID Condition Monitoring to predict failures and monitor health of equipment using the same architecture.
