Riskcast Solutions today announced the launch of its new contact tracing tool. The tool uses data within the platform’s timecards to allow employers to identify an employee that might have been diagnosed or suspects illness, and visually capture which other crew members they have been in contact with each day. Employers can now ‘look’ back in time and see all the likely points of contact by work activity and on the project, as each connection leads to other possible webs of connections.

Riskcast Solutions Launches Contact Tracing Tool

Newark, NJ (May 14, 2020) - Riskcast Solutions today announced the launch of its new contact tracing tool. The tool uses data within the platform’s timecards to allow employers to identify an employee that might have been diagnosed or suspects illness, and visually capture which other crew members they have been in contact with each day. Employers can now ‘look’ back in time and see all the likely points of contact by work activity and on the project, as each connection leads to other possible webs of connections.

“Everyone is eager to get back to work – and safety is paramount to keep job sites open for the long haul,” said Alec Thomson, Co-Founder and CEO of Riskcast.  “Contact tracing is likely to be a part of that effort – but we developed this tool with the culture of the construction industry in mind. It’s a solution that can be deployed quickly and used appropriately without creating fear or unnecessary delays.”

The contact tracing tool is the second new addition to the Riskcast platform this spring, with its Time and Materials (T&M) module having launched in April. Together, this enhanced suite of applications are geared to getting subcontractors and general contractors back to building quickly and efficiently under changing circumstances.  With the coronavirus creating the need for emergency work, forcing some projects to pause and others to adjust their workforce,tracking projects and ensuring personnel safety will be key to ongoing productivity.

Riskcast also recently announced free 90-day access to its platform for construction crews building through the coronavirus epidemic, allowing teams to experiment with working from home.  Duties such as payroll processing, crew scheduling, job cost reviews and production reports can all be managed remotely through Riskcast.
