Seven Chambers of Commerce have now launched a Test & Protect web app to help support their local areas during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Track and Trace web apps gives business owners a platform to securely check customers in and collect the data needed to support the Scottish Government’s Test and Protect Programme.
Visitors simply scan a QR code with a smartphone on entry and input their contact information to be held securely for use if required by NHS Scotland.
This means that after the first sign-in, they can check in easily and securely each time they visit a café, restaurant, hotel, visitor attraction or business which is using the app
The initiative is the latest measure rolled out by the Chamber’s network, who have been supporting their 12,500 members since the start of the Covid-19 crisis.
As of 14 August, all Scottish businesses serving food or drink to customers who remain within the premise must gather contact details to support NHS Scotland’s Test and Protect service.
The new app provides a safe and secure way of storing this information and can be used for purpose of contact tracing should the need arise. The app is free to Chamber members but available to all businesses and is primarily aimed at the region’s Tourism and Hospitality sector but can be used by any business that may need to comply with Test & Protect.
The service is easy to use for both the business and customer. Registered businesses will have access to a range of downloadable documents which include QR codes and numerical codes for display within their premises.
Within the account dashboard the businesses can also see how many times the service has been used. Visitors to the premise can check in via a QR code or numerical code on their mobile phone or manually by the business. Information can also be stored for their next visit.
