EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., June 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- GetWireless, a leading Value-Added Distributor of IoT solutions since 2001, announced today an innovative Safe Distancing Solution from Cresent NV/OPTION. As OPTION's distributor for the US, GetWireless will sell the OPTION Safe Distancing Solution nationally through their valued channel of resale partners and operators.
It has been proven that safe distancing is an effective way to limit the spread of infectious diseases like COVID-19 and influenza, and OPTION's Safe Distancing Solution for the Workplace allows workers to get back on the job safely, and more expeditiously. The Solution empowers businesses to alert their employees of close-proximity interactions in the workplace, while cataloging those interactions in an intuitive Cloud-based Platform so corporate administrators can visualize which employees were in close-proximity and for how long. The OPTION Safe Distancing Solution incorporates wearable badge sensors, that communicate wirelessly to an LTE/LoRa-enabled Gateway, and in-turn pushes the close-proximity data to the Platform for real-time or historical reporting.
"We are proud to contribute to the fight against COVID-19 and believe that the Safe Distancing Solution from OPTION is the most affordable, easy to implement, and employee-friendly solution to get employees back to the workplace," said Brian Taney, CEO at GetWireless.
