Melanie Hoskin from Mount Green, a successful user of the Resource Booking App, shared their experience of the app in hand with a safe return to work:

“With the pandemic upon us we have had no choice but to work differently and that of course means keeping safety of our staff as the focus. The app ensures we do not exceed the maximum number of people in the office at any one time. It also ensures that we can ‘track and trace’ staff should we need to if the unfortunate should happen, and we need to trace staff following a positive Covid-19 case".

We look forward to having you join us for our Resource Booking App webinar, if you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with us for more information.

There is no standard handbook for reopening a business during a global pandemic. Each organisation faces the daunting task of minimising risk in conference rooms, factory floors, storefronts, and more to ensure the safety of every employee and customer.

Last month at Microsoft Inspire, the new Power Platform return to the workplace solution was introduced to help customers safely prepare for the return to physical workplaces. Designed for fast deployment and customisation, the end-to-end components provide location readiness and safety tools for facility managers, self-service health and safety tools for employees, and case management tools for health and safety leaders.

The complexities of reopening for business

Organisations across industries and around the world have had to rapidly adapt their existing processes and operations while continuing to innovate, streamline to save costs, and service their customer's needs. Many organisations closed physical locations, shops, schools, and factories per government guidelines. Now, as some organisations begin returning to the workplace, it will be a phased process with employee and organisational safety at its core.

The process will be different for everyone and will require organisations to be agile and proactive, with fast feedback loops of learning, advancing, and retreating. as a result, organisations will need to maximise resources by quickly making data-driven decisions when it matter most to maintain safe work environments. By adapting business workflows and processes to changing needs, organisations can save time and money by reducing risk and streamlining their workplace reopening process.

Return to the workplace with confidence

The Power Platform return to the workplace pre-built solution is a comprehensive, end-to-end set of modules that help organisations plan, coordinate, and manage the return to the workplace with confidence, helping to ensure the health and safety of employees. The solution is easily customisable, with fast deployment, and built on a secure and compliant platform. Together, the modules provide an end-to-end experience for executive leaders, facility managers, employees, managers, as well as health and safety leaders:

Location Readiness: Allows facility managers and task force leaders to determine the readiness of their facilities and efficiently manage their safe reopening by making informed decisions using critical factors like COVID-19 infection rates and safety supply availability. 

Location Readiness - PowerApps

Employee Health and Safety Management: empowers your workforce with self-service tools that help them work safely, confidently, and productively, including a mobile app that lets them check in to work remotely and self-screen before entering facilities.

Health and Safety Management - PowerApps

Workplace Care Management: gives health and safety leaders the tools to actively manage COVID-19 cases, identify hot spots for safety improvement, and import data from third party systems to determine exposure.

Workplace Care Management - PowerApps

Location Management (coming soon): gives facility managers the tools they need to keep locations open safely, helping to maintain a safe environment with tools for monitoring occupancy, health supplies, safety procedures, and other facility-related best practices.
