Social Distancing + Contact Tracing in the workplace with the Evoko Naso

When you and your staff return to the office, you definitely want to ensure that your office environment is safe and flexible from a COVID-19 perspective.

The Evoko Naso provides flexible configurable solutions to support a safe transition back to the workplace.

• Hot desking and agile desk booking
• No touch meeting room experiences
• Visitor management and contact tracing
• Real-time data insights

Your post COVID workplace requirements can be met in several ways during the return to work phase. By using the Evoko Naso, you are enabling a contactless control over the office space to your employees.

Hot desking and agile desk booking

Utilising the Pepper add-on package you add fixed, bookable and individually assigned desk management.

You can use the Pepper package to ensure a safe and efficient workplace environment by managing desks and maintaining space management requirements. Whether you require the ability to assign fixed desks to employees, provide flexibility where people sit, or create bookable desks, Evoko Naso supports complete flexibility with built-in intelligence that makes social distancing simple.

Assign a fixed desk.

You can ensure social distancing by identifying who will be returning to the office and assigning them a fixed desk that is only available for their use.

Define bookable desks

Pre-determine what desks can be used while enabling the flexibility for employees to choose an individual desk from available workstations. Using the Naso mobile app employees can also easily find a colleague with real time location mapping on your office floor plan.

Ad hoc desk booking

With the Naso’s integrated presence detection sensors placed at available desks, workstations are automatically made unavailable based on real-time occupancy and space management requirements.

No Touch Meeting Room experiences

Navigate and Check-in/Check-out your way

The ROSE add-on package adds a variety of features to help employees and visitors find and check-in to meetings. The Naso reduces the need to touch surfaces in the workplace.

Dynamic mapping

By using static maps or optional interactive maps, users can easily navigate to rooms and desks.

Automatic Check-in

With Bluetooth low-energy check-in, users are automatically checked in to meeting rooms.
